KLANG, Dec 1 — The state government is finalising the lineup of Indian community leaders (KKI) for the 2024/2025 session following the Selangor State Executive Council meeting.

State executive councillor for human resources V. Papparaidu said the finalisation process is currently in the last stage before an official announcement is made.

“We are in the final stage, and 80 per cent will be retained, while the rest are due to various factors, including health issues and withdrawals.

“After discussions at the council meeting, the names of the appointed leaders for the two-year term starting from January 1 next year will be officially announced,” he said at the KKI appreciation ceremony yesterday afternoon.

During the ceremony, 62 individuals received certificates for their services and contributions during the two years of serving and conducting community programmes in their respective areas.

Papparaidu, also the Banting state assemblyman, suggested community leaders create a framework or plan for one year.

“Community leaders conduct various programmes, including Chinese New Year celebrations, Hari Raya Aidilfitri, and back-to-school events.

“Therefore, I suggest they create a framework from January to December to ensure no one is left out of receiving assistance.

“They can meet with their respective state assemblymen to organise plans which can be implemented rather than being unable to carry out any programmes due to financial factors,” he said.

The appointed KKIs oversee their respective state constituency with a sizable Indian population.

They are responsible for its progress and safety, delivering the latest information, assistance, and government policies to residents, as well as participating in state government programmes.
