Litmus Test To Bushehri As Rainy Season Draws Closer
As the rainy season draws closer, MPs are putting pressure on the Ministry of Public Works and the Kuwait Municipality to exert more efforts to prevent the same scenario that the country witnessed one year ago when several low lying areas remained submerged. For his part, MP Bader Al-Mulla said the next phase (rainy season) will provide definitive answers. He said the country will then know to what extent Minister Jenan Bushehri was true to her promises.
He went on to say, “This should be considered as a litmus test to her capabilities as minister of public works.” He added, she will be grilled in the Parliament if she fails to deliver what she has promised – failure to prevent any kind of damage to infrastructure or inconvenience to citizens it times of heavy rainfall which will prove nothing has been done to help the infrastructure to bear the brunt of heavy rains..
In another development, due to the growing number of Kuwaiti students sent on scholarships to universities in GCC countries, especially in Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, MP Abdullah Al-Kandari has submitted a proposal to include these students in the country’s health insurance policy. He noted this should have been implemented by now, as students are not expected to pay for their healthcare while on scholarships.
