KUALA LUMPUR: The Prime Minister has congratulated Selangor for setting aside political interests and differences to work alongside the Federal Government in providing improved water supply to people in the state and the Klang Valley.
In all matters, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said service to the people and country must be above politics.
“I congratulate the Selangor government for upholding this principle on this matter,” he said in a radio broadcast posted on his 1Malaysia blog yesterday.
He also commended both the federal and state governments for the successful signing of the “heads of agreement” to restructure Selangor’s water services industry.
The agreement, inked on Aug 1, was an extension to the memorandum of understanding signed by both parties on Feb 26 to build the Langat 2 water treatment plant and its distribution system.
Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili represented the Federal Government while Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim signed for the Selangor government.
Najib added that besides the water restructuring exercise in Selangor, short and long-term measures had been adopted by the Government to ensure sufficient water supply.
