He said that the Auditor-General's Report revealed that the Tanjung Manis water supply project was full of improprieties.
"As a result, despite RM902.7 million having been spent on it, it has totally failed to supply raw water from Sibu to the Tanjung Manis halal hub," Chong, who is also the deputy minister of domestic trade and consumers affairs, said.
TWENTY seven- yearold tribal health worker Jamuna Mani Singh has been working tirelessly for past five years in the tribal hamlets of the backward Nilgiri block in Odisha's Balasore district-- about 200 km from the state capital-- trying to rid the area of malaria which is still reckoned as one of the biggest killers in the state.
An accredited social health activist ( ASHA), Jamuna Mani said the prime minister's words of encouragement would make her work harder to save people from the dreaded disease that had also haunted her own village of Tendagaon on the outskirts of Kuldiha wildlife sanctuary.
Dismayed by Pakistan historic whitewash at the hands of Bangladesh, Mani
, on Sunday, sounded the alarm bells over the current scenario and called for a major overhaul of the PCB.
Manis earlier pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity but was declared competent to stand trial.
The woman told police that Manis kept her in a closet that was nailed shut, with her hands and feet bound, until she escaped by jumping out of a second-story window on November 26, and managed to reach neighbours for help.
The 17km-long Jalan Pasi-Sibu-Jalan Tanjung Manis
project, including a 1.2km bridge across the Batang Rajang, costing RM450 million, will be built immediately and expected to be completed within the next three years.
