It has been reported that Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim after chairing his State Executive Council Meeting today will announce his decision on the water agreement this friday whether the State is going to accept or decline the agreements entered with Puncak Niaga Holding Sdn Bhd and another, which was signed by the previous Barisan Nasional government on the eve of polling day on 7 March 2008.
As usual, since the Barisan Nasional government is a 'corrupt' government who does not care for the rakyat of Selangor, initial indication reveal that it would not be beneficial in the interest of the rakyat of Selangor on a long term. However, it needs to be addressed that Selangor requires to find a new source of water to meet the demands of the over-growing population, and the best source is only available in Pahang which has an abundance of it.
In another development it was reported that Energy, Water and Telecommunications Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor claimed yesterday that the water agreements were binding between the parties concerned.
However, since it is found to be 'one-sided' and if further negotiations fails, it has been decided that Tan Sri Khalid may make a full disclosure to the rakyat of Selangor to evaluate these agreements and decide whether they are in favour or not.
We need to wait until this friday for the outcome.
