Nik Aziz, exco member urged to quit over clean water issue
KOTA BARU: Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat and state Housing, Public Works, Utilities and Environment Committee chairman Datuk Md Anizam Abdul Rahman are urged to quit their posts over the clean water supply problem.
The People of Kelantan Action Council (MTRK) believe that both are responsible for the state's failure to provide clean water supply to the people in the state.
Its chairman Azmi Ali said MTRK would not hesitate to hold a large protest gathering here to urge them to quit if no action was taken to solve the problem.
"The people of Kelantan are not asking for a revolving tower or tiered flyover. We only want clean water. PAS carries the slogan, Welfare State, but it can't even solve the water problem.
"The people of Kelantan are very stressed out with this problem," he told reporters, here, today. Newspapers today reported that officers from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission went to the Air Kelantan Sdn Bhd office, here, at about 10am on Monday, to investigate the allegation of misappropriation.
On the reports quoting Anizam regarding the water problem as trivial, Azmi said: "Water is a very important requirement in life. Without water, no activities can be carried out". -- BERNAMA
