According to him, the proposal was first raised at the beginning of February and it will be used for the three main elements of river cleaning, city beautification and community programmes.
However, the details of the work of development are still under discussion and will be decided later.
It is understood that after this the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) will also be following in the footsteps made by MPK.
Adi Faizal said he did not set any law that requires employers of other convenience stores to use plastic bags sales for the use of CSR because everyone already has plans of its own social programmes.
