Previously, we shared how Local Government Development (KPKT) Minister Nga Kor Ming is focusing on solving the issue that is close to the hearts of the people: Public toilet cleanliness.

In fact, Nga asserted that he doesn’t care if he’s being dubbed the ‘toilet minister’, so long as clean public toilets become the norm in our country. Accordingly, KPKT announced back in January that the government would start handing out a ‘Toilet of the Year’ award to the cleanest public toilet in the country.


Furthermore, the ministry has also introduced the ‘BMW-grade’ clean toilet concept, which doesn’t refer to the luxury car brand, but instead an acronym for Bersih, Menawan and Wangi in Bahasa Melayu, which roughly translates to English as clean, charming and fragrant.

Now that Budget 2024 is in the works and will be tabled in Parliament in October, Nga has proposed an RM300 million allocation for the ministry to build these BMW toilets nationwide.


As reported by BERNAMA, this was among 29 KPKT initiatives under the national utility reform agenda for Budget 2024 put forward during the ministry’s meeting with the Treasury Secretary-General recently.

Besides that, KPKT is also proposing for RM100 million allocation to switch conventional street lights to LED or solar-powered bulbs nationwide for sustainability.

So, what do you guys think of the proposals by KPKT? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
