Floods: Anwar wants sufficient allocations channelled to victims


MANILA: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim wants sufficient allocations to be channelled to the victims of the floods in Johor, Pahang, Negri Sembilan, Sabah and Melaka, which have so far affected more than 29,000 people.

The Prime Minister said he had discussed the matter with his deputy Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is also the National Disaster Management Committee chairman, on the latest situation and types of assistance that can be provided before flying home from the Philippines Thursday (March 2).

"On the floods in Johor and Pahang, I have been updated on the current situation. I have discussed the matter with the Deputy Prime Minister (Ahmad Zahid) so that there are sufficient allocations for the flood victims,” he told Malaysian media at the end of his two-day visit to the Philippines.

Earlier, the Prime Minister met some 100 Malaysians residing in the country at Rumah Malaysia here.

Anwar also wants construction work on the Bailey bridge at the location where a road collapsed in Felda Selancar in Rompin on Wednesday (March 1) to be expedited.
