PKPS mulls extending affordable sales until May, MB to decide

By Diana Abd Wahab

KLANG, Jan 18 — The affordable sales organised by the Selangor Agricultural Development Corporation (PKPS) may be extended until May depending on Menteri Besar’s decision.

PKPS Strategic Communication manager Noor Azreena Abdul Aziz said the second phase of the Jelajah Ehsan Rakyat (JER) which began on Monday (January 16) was met with encouraging responses from the public who wanted the programme to be continued.

“The state-organised programme is aimed to alleviate people’s burden following the price hike in goods.

“InsyaAllah (God willing), the initiative will be continued until May depending on the decision made by the Menteri Besar,” she said when met during the JER programme at Masjid Al-Islah Kampung Sementa, yesterday.

Noor Azreena said for the time being, PKPS will continue organising the programme at nine locations this year, similar to last year.

She said as of now, there will be no additional locations since the agency has only nine trucks that will be mobilised to nine JER locations daily.

“Additional locations and products are still being discussed and any update will be announced later.

“For now, we will focus on main products such as standard chicken (RM10 per piece), B grade chicken eggs (RM10 per tray), fresh solid meat (RM10 per pack), 25kg cooking oil (RM25), 5kg rice (RM10) and fish (RM6 per pack),” she said.

The sale, which successfully benefited more than two million Selangor residents through a series of roadshows in 693 locations around 56 state constituencies, was previously continued until March this year.
