KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the Government viewed the current water crisis in several states as serious and would discuss the issue at the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday.
He said the meeting would also adopt follow-up action and measures to overcome the problem, adding that the Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry was looking into the matter.
"We are ready to carry out cloud-seeding, but for that, there must be rain clouds," he said after chairing an Umno Supreme Council meeting at Menara Dato Onn, here, on Friday.
Najib was asked to comment on the water crisis in several states due to the prolonged drought.
"The people must voluntarily exercise prudence in the use of water," he said.
