KUALA LUMPUR: A top cop has warned that prolonged water rationing in the Klang Valley could lead to social unrest as tensions are running high among the people.
Bukit Aman Crime Prevention and Eradication Department director Comm Datuk Ayub Yaakob said the rationing, now almost into its second month, could make matters worse if unresolved.
“As people struggle to cope with a situation that has been going on for almost two months, and with talks of even further rationing, heated emotions can take over, even in small everyday problems,” he cautioned.
“This is why we need to take better care of our environment and try to prevent such issues from arising further,” he said after launching a “Save the Nature” seminar at the Royal Malaysian Police College here yesterday.
The seminar was a joint effort between the police and other agencies like the Forestry Department of Peninsular Malaysia and the Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan).
The two-day seminar, which included talks on ways to go green and raise awareness on the environment, was attended by police personnel and school students.
Beside the talks, the seminar also featured informative exhibits.
“We, the police, just like everyone, are major stakeholders in the need to save our forest and wildlife from further deterioration,” said Comm Ayub.
Following this seminar, he said it was time for all relevant agencies to work more closely on eradicating crimes against nature, like unscrupulous logging and illegal trade of wildlife.
