SHAH ALAM, April 17 — Police are urged to tighten conditions and take action against those who ignore standard operating procedures (SOPs) at Ramadan bazaars.
Selangor Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said the action was necessary after taking into account the increasing number of positive Covid-19 cases in Selangor.
“I raised the need to tighten control and compliance with SOPs, especially in the Ramadan bazaar. The concern arose as a result of the increasing number of cases in the state.
“The police have agreed and will increase security by uniformed units,” he posted on Facebook yesterday.
Earlier, Amirudin spent time meeting Selangor Police chief Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed and his deputy Datuk Sharul Lalli Masduki.
On Thursday, Amirudin said the state government would not hesitate to cancel the Ramadan bazaar operation if the public failed to comply with the SOP.
