KLANG, 14 May: The Selangor Government today welcomed the intention of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak in implementing the National Reconciliation process.
According to the Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, Najib’s intention will be tested when the Selangor Government restarts the water industry restructuring process with the Federal Government.
“I have prepared a letter to the Prime Minister on this issue and I sincerely hope that he will give a positive response, in line with the Water Services Industry Act 2006 (WSIA).
“Selangor is committed for the Langat 2 project to be packaged together with the water industry restructuring process so that it will not operate separately,” said Abdul Khalid.
He said this at a press conference after being sworn in as the Chief Minister of Selangor for another term here at the Alam Shah Palace today.
Abdul Khalid also said that the State Government will intensify its programmes under the Localising the Selangor Economy (MES – Merakyatkan Ekonomi Selangor) agenda so that more citizens of Selangor will benefit from the wealth of the state.
“Also not forgetting all civil servants who have been carrying out their duties professionally all these while, so much so that Pakatan Rakyat was able to translate the Merakyatkan Ekonomi Selangor and the State Revenue for the People policies.
“I believe that their cooperation has enabled us to gain great success in the recent election,” he added.
Previously, after a decline in BN-owned parliamentary seats in the 13th General Election (GE-13), last week Najib announced to carry out the National Reconciliation policy to attract the people’s support for BN.
