PUTRAJAYA: People from Johor must be smart at the time of fighting for their rights in the issue of exploitation by Singapore, especially when it comes to selling raw water for the insular state, according to Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
He said that Singapore, as a developed country with the per capita income of $ 18,000, should not buy more water from a country with a per capita income of less than $ 10,000, at such a cheap price of 3 without 1,000 gallons, as decided 1926
"Singapore has developed rapidly because we supply them with water, but I think that the Xoristas rarely speak about it.
"They just hope the negotiations will be undertaken by the federal government as if the state government was not affected.
"The state government must listen to their voices. The rich depend on the poor? This is not only illogical, but morally incorrect. We must put stress on this issue," said the retirement of Johor's government with the federal cabinet, here today. – Bernama
