PETALING JAYA: The Federal and Selangor governments have been urged to put aside political differences and work together to overcome the expected water shortage crisis before it is too late.

In making the call, the Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya Water Association Vice-President Datuk Muhammad Azaham Wahab said the federal and state governments should work hand in hand to overcome any catastrophe.

He said an integrated approach and concerted efforts should be well on course to guarantee there would not be a recurrence of the water shortages a decade ago.

According to Muhammad Aza­ham, his association was gravely concerned by the Klang Valley’s critical water supply situation where demand would soon exceed supply.

Addressing Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim’s recent statement that there would be enough water in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur until 2019, he cautioned that it might be unwise to wait until then as it would be too late to take action.

He said by then, everyone would face hardship and it would not be surprising if fingers were pointed towards Selangor’s Menteri Besar for giving the wrong indication.
