SHAH ALAM, 20 Nov: The Selangor State Government has asked the Auditor General of Malaysia to assess the Sekangorku Grant (GSK) and to compare it with grants from other states.
Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim announced the move in the Selangor State Assembly (DNS) sitting today.
“This way, we will be able to better enhance the implementation procedure,” Abdul Khalid said.
In yesterday’s press conference, Abdul Khalid said that almost RM200 million has already been used from the Selangorku Grant’s total amount of RM300 million. The balance can still be used in 2013 without the approval of the State Assembly.
The Selangorku Grant is used to pay for infrastructural projects and public amenities in Selangor. This includes roadwork, village streetlights, mosque upgrades and sport courts.
The funds for the GSK is attained from the collection of Talam Corporation’s debts worth RM392 million as well as the restructuring of Canal City.
