Iskandar: Some tricked into protesting

Published: Fri, 30 Nov 2012

SHAH ALAM: Some people may have been tricked into taking part in anti-state government protests regarding the Free Water Policy which does not apply to consumers using bulk metres.

Iskandar Samad (PAS-Cempaka)  alleged on Tuesday in the state assembly that some participants were not even from high-rises that were exempted from the policy.

“I have been getting reliable feedback from our investigation, that some of these participants are not from the apartments they claimed to represent.

“Some residents who are living there also told me that they were tricked; they were told the demonstration is against the recent anti-Islamic film and only found out its true purpose during the protest,” said the exco for building management.

About 200 residents of the Angsana Apartments in Sungai Long staged a protest in September against being excluded by the Free Water Policy as they were using bulk meters.

Shafie Abu Bakar (PAS-Bangi) also wanted to know the legal implications of the state being sued over exclusions of the policy.

It was reported that over 700 residents of Shah Alam filed a suit against Selangor in September for not getting the benefits of the policy as promised in the 2008 elections.

Iskandar said they are currently studying the legal aspects of it and will leave it to the courts on how to handle it.
