Former Minister: Over RM1 Billion Have Been Allocated to Fix Kelantan’s Water Supply Problems
(World of Buzz) – It’s no secret that Kelantan has been having problems with their water supply for the longest time. From water shortages to dirty, rusty water, it’s safe to say that Kelantan folks are suffering without a basic necessity.
Former Kangar MP Noor Amin Ahmad recently took to his Twitter page to showcase a throwback, a written Parliamentary response by former Environment and Water Minister Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man from 2021, explaining that more than RM1 billion had been channeled to the state in order to fix their water supply issues over the years.
This comes after Ir. Ts. Khairil Nizam had asked Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim for an update on the efforts of his then ministry on the water management infrastructure upgrades for Kelantan that, in his words, is a right that has been long denied by the Federal Government.
“The Federal Government has basically never denied the state’s right to improve the level of water management in the state of Kelantan.”
“This can be seen through the allocation of RM1.073 billion, which has been spent since the Eight Malaysia Plan (RMKe-8) to the Eleventh Malaysia Plan (RMKe-11) where RM907 million was in the form of loans while the remaining RM166 million was in the form of grants,” Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim answered.
