SERDANG, March 8 (Bernama) -- The current water supply disruption in Selangor reflects the weakness and inefficiency of the state government in managing the basic needs of the people, said Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar.
He said the disruption had made life difficult for the people.
"As the minister responsible for water resources, I have to say that our country does not face a water supply issue. What happened in Selangor is the failure in water management," he said to reporters after presenting excellent service awards to the staff of the ministry here today.
Wan Junaidi said the Selangor government must take the management and maintenance of water resources and the supply of water seriously if it wanted to take care of the people and their needs.
