Seven families crying out for clean water supply


Compiled by C. ARUNO, MARTIN CARVALHO and R. ARAVINTHAN

Seven Indian families living in a Johor village without clean water supply are fed up with being treated dismissively by local leaders, Makkal Osai reported.

The families comprise about 60 people living in the area known as Batu 11 in Ulu Tiram.

One of the residents, M.Thinesh, 26, said there were many more families, but they eventually moved out.

The families have to depend on well water.

When the matter was brought up to local leaders, the families were just advised to move out of the area, K. Jeyakumar, 49, said.

However, he said it is not easy as most of them are not well to do.

State exco member V. Ganabatirau said RM4,360,000 had been disbursed earlier as part of the first batch to 83 schools.

The second round of disbursements will see 14 schools receiving a total of RM540,000.
