FT Minister: KL’s drainage system working well, people shouldn’t litter

THE city's drainage system isn't faulty and is able to handle downpours and flash floods, says Khalid Abdul Samad.  

However, the Federal Territories Minister said people need to change their attitude and mindset. 

"The drainage and irrigation have been in place for so long and it is working well, so it is our duty as citizens to not litter," he said after a visit to the Bukit Bintang City Centre sales gallery on Monday (Nov 19).

Khalid said the city had many ongoing construction projects and it was tough for Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to monitor such sites to check if their work affects or clogs the drainage system.

"Sometimes it is caused by the rubbish people throw onto the roads or into drains that clog the drainage system," he said.
