The Selangor Pakatan Rakyat government will be able to extend its free 20 cubic metres of water programme to each household in Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur provided that the federal government allows it to implement its water restructuring exercise.
Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the restructuring exercise, where the state government would take over four private companies, would allow it to finance the RM2 billion needed to provide free 20 cubic metres of water to every household in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.
"This is part of our offer to get the support of the people of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya. This is part of our restructuring exercise," Khalid said after attending a summit on water and energy in Kuala Lumpur today. – February 18, 2014.
