Water company Syabas chief caught lying, and UMNO deputy/DPM gives the proof...II

YESTERDAY, wrote a post which began with an INTRO that follows:

SYABAS to the deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin for exposing the Selangor water company Syabas's CEO's crying "wolf, wolf!" just a week ago warnig that the PR-ruled state would have to start water rationing immediately as the situation in the state has reached a crisis point.

TODAY, Part II continues with more views and exposes:)

From Suara Keadilan of 24 JULAI 2012, which is in Bahasa Malaysia, so my versions 
(IN RED&BOLDED, THUS) that follow are my best translations/summaries of the items as reported by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR)'s official newspaper, OK!

Frontpage,: the headlines say it all!

AIR PERCUMA muka 2,3

FREE WATER pages 2,3


"PMECATAN ini akan
menjimatkan kos operasi
kerana gaji Pengerusi
Eksekutif Syabas islah RM425,000

Menteri Besar Selangor

"THIS SACKING will save 
the operation cost because
the salary of the Executive Chairman 
of Syabas is RM425,000 per month"

Chief Minister of Selangor


DESIDERATA: Oh my God, the idiotic water company has deemed its Chairman a SUPERMAN, paying him RM425,000 monthly, translating into RM5.1million a year! NO wonder all the concessionaire's top executives, in cahoots with UMNO, are resisting the take-over of Syabas by the Selangor state government. A REFERENDUM as proposed by the State government (as outlined in yestewrday's post here) would help to end the impasse so that the will and wishes of the residents of Selangor will the primary determinant of this looming crisis if not remdied in time!

Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim in a page 2 report was also quoted as saying  said the State government it planned to increase the capacity of water treatment with a new dam under Mitigasi 2 costing RM225million. 

Before this, the government haad formed a Syabas Monitoring Committee (Jawatn Kuasa  Pemantauan SYABAS) chaired by the State Secretary to assess the efficiency of water services provided by Syabas. This was to snsure that the interets of the consumers in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur were protected and it had been shown Syabas had failed to provide adequate clean water as provided for in its concessionaire agreement, Khalid added.
