KANGAR, May 22 (Bernama) -- The 17th Malaysia Games (Sukma XVII) Perlis will begin officially on Saturday but the organisers are not worried about the status of the swimming pool that is not yet ready as it is convinced that all events will be held in the state.
While all the other venues are fully completed, the badminton hall still needs to have the lightings installed and these are expected to be ready before Saturday.
Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azlan Man is convinced that the roof for the diving pool will be ready 'in the near future' once the crane arrives to lift up the roof.
"Now is the time to work...got to reduce talking," he said as though expecting reporters to ask further on the status of the pool to avoid further replies.
He was seen together with the staff of Perlis state government departments and agencies in a 'gotong-royong' to clean up the whole area around the Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Sports Complex, the main venue for the Perlis Sukma events.....
