No point having RM3bil if people’s welfare not taken care of, says Wan Azizah

SHAH ALAM: There is no point in the Selangor government having RM3bil in reserve if the welfare of the people is not taken care of said PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (pic).

"Selangor has the highest rate of dengue cases in the country.

“The dengue rate in the state has gone up by 338% with 29,972 cases," she told delegates at the 10th annual PKR congress, Saturday.

According to the Health Ministry, dengue cases in Selangor have spiked by 338%, with 29,972 cases recorded between January and July 27, compared to only 6,842 cases in the same period last year.

"Why don't we take the initiative to change so that Selangor is free of Aedes mosquitoes," added the Kajang assemblyman.

Pakatan Rakyat have agreed on Dr Wan Azizah replacing Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim as Selangor Mentri Besar.

Dr Wan Azizah also said that Selangor should be a model state for Pakatan Rakyat.

Under Khalid, Selangor has amassed reserves of more than RM3bil.

Khalid, who was expelled from PKR recently, has been criticised for being too stingy with releasing money for the state.
