KUALA SELANGOR, MAR 24: The Selangor Government continues its pledge to preserve the social agenda and protect the citizens’ welfare in the state.
Dato’ Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said, the hard work is presented through various initiatives implemented since 2008.
He said Selangor’s success is also evident when it managed to free itself from the poverty line recording 0.2 percent poverty incidents compared to Malaysia at 0.6 percent.
“The State Government is most concerned on the quality and the standard of living following the rising cost of living affecting the daily lives and eventually the citizens become the victims.
“Therefore, the State Government comes forwards with the intent to empower citizens to ensure household income can be increased and freedom from poverty,” he said at the Program Menyemarak Inisiatif Peduli Rakyat (IPR) at Bukit Badong.
Mohamed Azmin said, Selangor has achieved overall excellence in ensuring protection and welfare to the citizens.
