KOTA BARU: Fed up over what they claim has been 10 years of poor quality water from their taps in Kelantan, more than 100 people held a demonstration here to express their anger. Representatives of more than 30 NGOs took part in a peaceful gathering outside the government complex in Kota Darul Naim.

The Gabungan Bertindak Restorasi Air Kelantan (Restorasi) NGO handed a memorandum to the PAS-led Kelantan government during the gathering.

The memorandum demanded for change in the management of the Air Kelantan Sdn Bhd (AKSB) which, they alleged, had failed to deliver quality treated water for more than a decade.

A spokesman for the group, Datuk Seri Mohd Fared Ghani, said the people were fed up with the state of the water supply services.

He said an independent auditor should be appointed to investigate AKSB’s non-revenue water losses and public funds spent to maintain the water agency.

“The people of Kelantan deserve to get clean and treated water like those in other states. We want changes to the state water supply company,” said Mohd Fared.
