KOTA KINABALU: The state government had nothing to do with the RM3.3bil federal allocations as it was directly channelled to the state water department from the Federal-level Rural and Regional Development Ministry.

"I understand that this particular RM3.3bil worth of federal projects allocated since 2010 is under the Rural and Regional Development Ministry, which my ministry does not handle," Sabah infrastructure development minister Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan (pic) said in a second statement issued Friday.
