Instead of provoking Penang, Kedah MB advised extending an olive branch.
PETALING JAYA: Instead of continuing to provoke Penang, Kedah menteri besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor has been told to extend an olive branch to the state and settle the raw water dispute.
Penang has stepped in to support Kedah by sending staff and a water tanker to several areas in the state that are currently experiencing water shortages, according to the DAP man.
From March 21 to April 5, he said, 25 members of Penang’s water authority were mobilized under the 60th Royal Water Engineers Regiment (RAJD) to supply treated water as well as lay and repair pipes.
“It is abundantly clear that Sanusi, despite his big talk of punishing Penang with muddy water, has abandoned the people in his state to suffer water shortage.
“If good sense prevails, as a result of this humanitarian gesture by Penang, Sanusi should stop provoking Penang. In fact, he should wave the olive branch towards Penang.
“Let us see whether the current drought in Kedah leading to water shortage can knock some sense into Sanusi’s head,” he said in a Facebook post today.
