“I think it is better if the Honourable Member that wants to use English expression in the hall not only said ‘with permission’ but must also state in Bahaa Melayu first and only then ask ‘with permission’ and followed by an expression in English to strengthen or make his argument, “he said.

Meanwhile, Hulu Kelang’s ADN, Saari Sungib when commenting on the same issue, calling it a good suggestion to strengthen the command of Bahasa Melayu lamong members DNS.

“This is a good proposal and I will practice it when the council meets in addition to trumpet the other partners so that they also take similar steps,” he told SelangorKini at the same seminar.

He said other than to uphold Bahasa Malaysia, the practice was also to increase the ADN skills to communicate in Bahasa Malaysia.
