KOTA BARU: The Kelantan People’s Action Council (MTRK)today urged the PAS-led state government to hand over the management of potable water to the federal government, claiming that it has failed in the endeavour over the last 22 years.

Its president, Azmi Ali, said MTRK wanted the state government to do sowithin a month, failing which the council would hold a large gathering to pressfor it.

“The people of Kelantan want the PAS-led state government to quickly handover the management of water to the National Water Services Commission (SPAN).

“PAS must admit that it has failed to implement the management of potable water to the people who have voted for it,” he said after leading 3,000 people to press for the handing over, here.

Meanwhile, Malay right-wing group, Perkasa, vice-president Datuk MustaphaYaakub claimed that the federal government has provided a RM600-million allocation to Kelantan to solve its water woes but the latter has failed to do so. – Bernama
