The trouble first started when smart aleck Mahathir took away the states' right to manage water matters by privatising (what others called piratising) the whole issue of water management and supply formerly the states' task.
When the individual states were managing their own water and supply, there were hardly any issues about water disruptions.
Now, with the matter being privatised, what consumers face, especially in the case of Selangor supposedly the most advanced Bolehland state, are frequent disruptions.
The current water disruption in Selangor is a case in point. Consumers should not be expected to tolerate frequent water disruptions for whatever reason or reasons or excuses.
If Syabas as the supplier and others as water producers and whatnot can't ensure that water supply is reliable, they should just close shops and let others more capable and reliable take over.
There is no excuse for failure to do a job well and reliably.
Long suffering Selangor folks have had enough. We don't want to have to listen to justifications and excuses.
After all, we are paying consumers. It is not as if water is supplied to us for free.
Even if water is supplied free, it is a critical necessity and there is no excuse for failure to do the job reliably.
