Ministry refutes Selangor water sabotage claim


PUTRAJAYA: The Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry (KETTHA) yesterday refuted the allegation that the water woes in Selangor was an act of sabotage by the federal government, allegedly by closing the main pipes, as reported by “Edisi Kantoi”.

In a statement, KETTHA secretary-general Datuk Seri Ir Dr Zaini Ujang said the same report was published in 2013 and 2014 and was being republishe­d now to defame the federal government.

“It is actually an attempt to hide the Selangor government’s inefficien­cy in the management of its water industry,” he said.

Zaini also explained that the number of water disruption cases is the main indicator to measure the efficiency level of the water service.
