BANDAR TUN RAZAK, 11 Apr: The residents of Federal Territory has the opportunity of acquiring water shares as a result of the restructuring of Selangor’s water industry if Pakatan Rakyat (PR) successfully gains control of the country’s administration after the 13th General Elections (GE-13).
Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said that this effort can be implemented based on his experience as the Chief Executive Officer of Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB).
When he was in PNB, he successfully implemented giving out eight million shares to Malaysians, including the famous schemes, Amanah Saham Nasional and Amanah Saham Bumiputera.
“So this is not a dream but why could it not be done by them (BN) who did not do this because they are not interested in the interests of the people.
“Today, we have chosen two teams, one from Pakatan Rakyat and another from Umno-BN”.
“Where one is thinking about corporate profits (BN) and another thinks about the people’s profit (Pakatan Rakyat),” said Abdul Khalid.
He said this curing the Pakatan Rakyat talk held at the Jalan Jujur football here yesterday.
Previously, Abdul Khalid announced his intention to distribute Selangor water shares to five million Selangorians if PR is given the mandate to govern again.
The offer of this water share is another translation of his ambition as a Chief Minister who wants the people of Selangor to own the wealth of the state.
