Selangor govt merely caretaker, says Zin


SHAH ALAM: The Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) led Selangor government is akin to a caretaker government because it has not made any huge improvements in the state in its five-year rule.

Selangor Barisan Nasional coordinator Datuk Seri Mohd Zin Mohamed said after taking over Selangor in 2008, the PKR government should rightly have managed the state to be more progressive.

Instead, he pointed out that the state government had failed to even maintain a proper waste management system to clean up rubbish in the state.

"Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim had earlier announced that the state government bought trash compactors costing RM14.5 million.

"Where are these compactors?" he said at Umno Sri Muda service centre, here, yesterday, adding that the lack of quality waste management had led to floods in Selangor.

Worse, he said, was the fact that illegal sand mining in the state had caused obstruction to the flow of river water to the sea.
