REMBAU – Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin today said that he had asked the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (JPS) to repair the Pedas river retaining wall which collapsed during the recent flash floods.
Khairy, who is also Rembau Member of Parliament, said the reconstruction of the wall should begin soon.
“I have also asked them to clear up piles of bamboo logs that have been disrupting the water flow in Pedas river,” he told reporters after visiting eight flood-affected families at Pedas police barrack here today.
Also present were Rembau police chief DSP Ibrahim Sharif and Rembau Natural Disaster Committee chairman Zaidi Johari.
Khairy said financial aid had also been distributed to the 27 families affected by the flash floods which hit the district last Thursday. – BERNAMA
