Flood protection projects should be promoted

SEGAMAT: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (Picture) has pledged that flood protection projects, particularly in Johor, will be accelerated and must start from June this year.

He said the bidding process for the projects needs to be done as soon as possible as the flood problem is a recurring problem.

“If we don’t do anything serious to address this (flooding) problem, it will happen again. This is not the first time and it has been going on for years and sometimes twice a year.

“Hence, we have decided that expensive flood control projects worth RM600 million and more will be accelerated,” he told reporters after visiting the Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina) Kampung Tengah Temporary Relief Center here today.

He said the postponement of six flood mitigation projects earlier was to avoid leaks in allocations to help people.
