SHAH ALAM, OCT 8: The community in Permatang State Legislative Assembly, irrespective of their political affiliation, is urged not to miss the chance to join the Inisiatif Peduli Rakyat (IPR) schemes which the State Government has launched.
The constituency’s Citizens Service Centre, Rozana Zainal Abidin said, joining the scheme will bring a lot of benefit as enjoyed by the 424 residents in the area recently.
“Those residents received many benefits among which was the HIJRAH microcredit scheme received by 65 people, where 5 received RM50,000 loans. The total value received this time is RM684,000.
“We also have various schemes for fishermen and farmers including food stamp, ‘peduli sihat’ card and not to mention Selangor Menteri Besar Incorporated’s (MBI) contributions to single mothers and asnaf (eligible zakat recipients),” she said to SelangorKini.
Rozana said, these contributions were presented in a turun padang programme, Majlis Menyemarak IPR dan Ramah Mesra Bersama Dato’ Menteri Besar, at the Al-Munawwarah Mosque, Sawah Sempadan, recently.
She said, hopefully the contribution can help citizens who are facing the burden of increasing cost of living for the past several years.
“When the State Government spend in the right way, with honesty and transparency, the money will be enough for all citizens, and they look forward to what the State Government will offer next,” she said.
