KLANG, NOV 7: The State Government of Selangor will help those whose applications to open up a factory have been turned down by Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) on the ground of insufficient water supply in Selangor.
Health, Plantation Workers, Poverty and Caring Government Exco, Dr. Xavier Jayakumar said that the State Government had never turned down any companies or new investors who intended to open up factories in Selangor.
They can liaise closely with the state government agencies for further clarification about the status of water supply in Selangor.
They are encouraged to meet with the District Council, State Authorities, Selangor State Investment Centre (SSIC) as well as Unit Perancang Ekonomi Negeri (UPEN) or State Economic Planning Unit.
‘If they wish to open up a factory, they can meet with them, or me in my office myself.’
‘We can provide them with accurate explanation because we have done thorough research on this.’
‘These factory owners do not have to come and see any NGOs or Syabas’, he said during an interview after officiating a prize giving ceremony for those excellent achievers of Sekolah Rendah Agama Sungai Kandis.
Previously, Director of Gerakan Prihatin Rakyat Selangor (GPRS), Datuk Sohaimi Shahadan said that more than 1, 000 applications to open up a factory had been turned down by Syabas because of the water crisis issue in Selangor.
Dr. Xavier said that based on the study conducted by the State Water Commissioner, the allegation about water crisis in Selangor was baseless.
