Wan Azizah: Selangor folk did not benefit from Khalid’s tenure

SHAH ALAM: PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail criticised Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim’s thrifty administration, which she said has not benefited the people in Selangor.

In her presidential policy address at the PKR 10th National Congress yesterday, she praised Khalid for his expertise in managing the state.

“We are happy that the Selangor state government has the money to carry out socio-economic programmes.

“But we should also be concerned about issues like rubbish collection and road problems, of which the allocation for these purposes has not been utilised,” said Dr Wan Azizah.

She said it is the people’s right to enjoy basic infrastructure like roads, drainage and a clean environment free from dengue.

“Selangor has the highest rate of dengue cases and they have shot up by 338% with 29,972 cases so far,” she said.

Dr Wan Azizah said the state government should give its commitment to change for the betterment of the Selangor people.

She stressed that Pakatan Rakyat was given the mandate by the people not because of a single party or individual but a collective coalition which represented the rakyat.

Selangor should be the model state for Pakatan, she added.

On the party polls, she admitted that weaknesses had existed in the election process.

“I have ordered the election committee to take note of the comments made on the party polls and use the suggestions for the central leadership to take action,” she said.
