SHAH ALAM, June 23 — The state government will continue to use the Selangor Penyayang roadshow as a platform to meet the people and share initiatives for their benefit.
Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said the tour which kicked off in Hulu Langat on Sunday would continue in Kuala Langat on June 25.
“Along with the current development, the people’s welfare programmes have also expanded in line with the needs of the people and the prosperity of the state.
“Selangor Penyayang roadshow is a platform for the state government to meet with the community and share all initiatives for the benefit of the people,” he said on Facebook today.
On June 19, Amirudin said the roadshow is being held in nine districts, with each district presenting different sub-sectors that would benefit the people.
The programme, organised by the state government, was met with enthusiastic response during its launch at Taman Kosas, Ampang on June 19 and will continue at Dataran Pantai Morib on June 25.
It will subsequently be held at Stadium Utama Kuala Selangor on July 2, Dataran Boulevard at Laman MBPJ (Petaling Jaya City Council) on July 16, followed by the Padang Awam Batu Caves in Gombak on July 31.
Various activities are organised for the event, which starts from 7.30am to 5.30pm, including musical performances by artists, aerobics, cooking competitions, flower arrangements, people’s sports, skateboarding and e-sports.
The initiative is realised with an RM350 million allocation, replacing the Inisiatif Peduli Rakyat programme so that more people can benefit from the state government’s programmes.
This includes Bantuan Kehidupan Sejahtera Selangor (Bingkas) which replaces Kasih Ibu Smart Selangor (Kiss) and will help up to 30,000 families compared to 25,000 before.
Also carried out during the carnival is the Selangor Saring free health screening programme to detect chronic ailments, with an expenditure of RM1.5 million and expected to benefit up to 5,000 people, particularly those in high-risk categories.
