SHAH ALAM: The 20 cubic metres of free water now enjoyed by all Selangor households may run out soon for some.
The state government may restrict the benefit to low-income households once the restructuring of the water industry in the state has been completed, said Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.
He cited the prohibitive cost of takeover of the water assets as the main reason for this consideration.
Mohamed Azmin (PKR-Bukit Antarabangsa) was replying to a supplementary question from Saari Sungib (AMANAH-Hulu Klang) in the Selangor state legislative assembly.
Saari had wanted to know whether the state government was considering giving the free water only to low-income households. --Bernama
