Media Statement by Dr. Ong Kian Ming, MP for Serdang, on the 1st of April, 2015
Much has been said about the Minister of Education II, Dato Seri Idris Jusoh’s statements about Malaysia having a world class higher education system. I want to draw the Minister’s attention to the ongoing problem regarding the water supply within Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Bangi.
Last week, I received complaints from some of the UKM student unions that 5 out of the 13 colleges had been experiencing water disruptions, some for as long as three weeks. As of yesterday, I have been notified that the following four colleges – Kolej Ungku Omar, Kolej Aminuddin Baki, Kolej Keris Mas and Kolej Burhanuddin Helmi – were still without their water supply. The authorities in UKM have been sending water trucks to supply water to these colleges.
