Penang’s water tariff increased only once in the last decade – Chow

BATU MAUNG, Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow today dismissed claims by former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak that the water tariff in the state had increased four times in the past 10 years.

Chow said the water tariff in Penang was increased only once, affecting the domestic users under Pakatan Harapan (formerly Pakatan Rakyat) rule over the past 10 years.

I would like to thank him (Najib) for noticing our announcement yesterday, but actually it only happened once for domestic use, he told reporters after launching the FedEx Penang Gateway facility in the MAB New Cargo Complex at Penang International Airport here today.
