KUCHING, Mar 23: The Sarawak government has been urged to solve the treated water supply problem in Serian.

Democratic Action Party (DAP) Serian branch chairman Brolin Nicholsion in a press statement today said there are some families in Serian who have no access to treated water supply.


“After 57 years with GPS as the government of Sarawak, only 99 per cent in Kuching and 87 per cent for the rural areas are supplied with treated water.

“It should have 100 per cent coverage for the urban areas like Kuching while the rural areas should have received at least 90 per cent treated water supply from a government that governs for 57 years.

“As a government, they should realise their weaknesses after being in the government for too long and this issue should not be the topic for a government that governs for nearly two decades,” he said.

Brolin was responding to a statement made by Utilities Minister Datuk Seri Dr Stephen Rundi who said the state government is providing access to treated water supply across Sarawak while Kuching area has 99 per cent access.

At the same time, Brolin also criticised the state government for being incompetent in managing the state’s wealth. — DayakDaily
