The lack of access to clean water in Kelantan is, unfortunately, not a new issue. Despite so, some of the people in the state are still struggling to get clean water as part of their basic, daily necessities, even in a tough time like during the flood. 

Today (March 15), Deputy Prime Minister, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi promised the people in Kelantan that if they vote for Barisan Nasional (BN) in the upcoming state election, the issue of dirty water in Kelantan will be solved in 5 years’ time.

Speaking to the media, Zahid urged the people in Kelantan to “help” UMNO by giving the party a chance to help the people back in the upcoming state election.

“Water crisis in Kelantan has to be solved, and that’s our promise. In this case, voters in Kelantan has to help by voting for us.”

What if BN & UMNO don’t manage to walk the talk?

“Give a chance to UMNO for 5 years. If you don’t think we’re doing great, you can vote for others by then,” Zahid said and explained that all they need is 5 years to prove that they can solve the water issue in the state.

During the introductory session for UMNO candidates 2023/2026 in Kota Bharu, Kelantan, Zahid took the opportunity to throw shade at other politicians who blamed fate for the water issue in the state. He is not a fan of the statement and said that as leaders, such a thing shouldn’t have been said.

“As a leader, we should do what we can and work to find solution for the people.”

The Deputy PM did not specify which politician had blamed the water issue on fate in the past.

He then assured the people that BN & UMNO will continue to follow the good legacy that the current state government has implemented. As of now, the Kelantan state election is expected to be held somewhere in July or August this year.

Late last year, it was reported that some flood victims in Kelantan were forced to boil flood water for their consumption after days without access to clean water. With what Zahid said, we truly hope that the party will keep its promises and hopefully, the lack of access to clean water in the state will come to an end.
