ULU YAM BAHARU (Selangor) – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today the opposition-led Selangor government had failed to address five major weaknesses in the state, among them the water problem and high cost of houses.
The other weaknesses were taxes which burdened the people, poor waste management, and failure to manage rivers thus resulting in more cases of infectious diseases, he added.
Najib said Kelantan was also under the opposition but the state government and the federal government were able to manage water in that state “but here (in Selangor) they give preference to politics, not the people”.
According to Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd, the water situation was critical in six districts where supply was weak, quality was bad, pressure was low, service was poor and there was billing confusion, he said.
“This is the sorry state of water management in the state,” he said when launching the Selangor Barisan Nasional election machinery at the Kampung Sungai Chik square here. – BERNAMA
