JAS role was to prepare through a limited tender process 10 local companies to carry out the project.

Mohd Tahir is not Umno Kimanis division treasurer as claimed by a certain disgruntled menopausal whining auntie in Perak.
That would be Rizal @ Raymond Godfrey Abdullah, whom I seriously hope would sue the auntie.
Although JAS had requested for the funds that is channelled through the ministry to be channeled through the state treasury, the request was never approved.
How many water projects under the ministry have there been?
That is a lot of projects and they go back as far as 2011.
Who was the minister for ministry then? Shafie Apdal.
He was minister from April 10, 2009 until his removal in July 29, 2015.
