SHAH ALAM, May 26 — The Jelajah Ehsan Rakyat (JER) affordable basic necessities sales programme will take place in nine state constituencies tomorrow, starting at 10am.
The Selangor Agricultural Development Corporation (PKPS) said the locations include Taman Air Manis in the Sabak , and Balai Raya Chalet Telok Tongkah in Morib.
Other locations include the AU5C Ramadan bazaar site in Hulu Kelang, Dewan Serbaguna MBSJ Seri Serdang in Seri Serdang, padang Jalan Sri Puchong in Kinrara, and in front of Sekolah Kampung Melayu Sungai Buloh in Paya Jaras.
JER will also take place at Taman Mentari Bandar Mahkota in Banting, the grounds of Masjid Ar-Rahman Sungai Pinang in Port Klang, and Taman Seroja in Sungai Pelek.
The programme offers a variety of items including standard chicken at RM10 per pack, frozen solid beef at RM10 per pack, Grade B chicken eggs at RM10 per tray, mackerel at RM6 per pack, 5kg cooking oil at RM25 per pack, and 5kg rice at RM10 per pack.
During its run from September to December last year, JER benefitted over two million Selangor residents.
In light of the encouraging public response, the state government expanded the programme to 1,200 locations from January 16 onwards.
Additionally, during the last week of Ramadan, PKPS collaborated with the Selangor Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority and Koperasi Warga Hijrah Selangor Berhad to organise a Hari Raya Aidilfitri mega sale in 23 locations, so as to lighten the economic burdens faced by members of the public.
For its efforts, PKPS was recognised by the Malaysian Book of Records for selling the largest amount of subsidised chicken and eggs within a two-day period, in conjunction with Aidilfitri.
