Jom Shopping Programme To Remind The Community Of The Selangor PR Government’s Attentiveness


BANDAR TUN RAZAK, 18 Mar: Despite being greatly crushed by the Federal Government, however, the Localising the Selangor Economy (MES – Merakyatkan Ekonomi Selangor) programme, the Jom Shopping (Let’s Go Shopping) programme has gained a place in the hearts of the senior citizens.

TV Selangor’s coverage of the Jom Shopping programme in the Bandar Tun Razak Parliament found that the programme has gotten positive response from the senior citizens who continue to benefit from the wealth of Selangor.


Former government employee, Pen Wong, 67, said that the people should give a chance to Pakatan Rakyat to govern the country.

This is after seeing the various welfare programmes organised by Selangor which helps all, irrespective of political affiliation or ethnicity.

He said that after almost 56 years under the Umno-BN rule, the status of the poor have yet to change, in fact the government only prioritises stakeholders.

“I think that PKR (the State Government) has helped the poor a lot.I like this party a lot.

“Although I receive a pension, it is still not enough. If you can help, of course I would like it,” he said.

He also refuted the credibility of the MCA party which has failed to develop the poorer groups from the Chinese community.

“MCA does not help. I do not support MCA, every time I read news online, I feel hatred towards (Datuk Seri) Chua Soi Lek. He has no morals.

“I have not seen any changes.Malays, Chinese and Indians are poor.(Umno-BN) helps cronies only,” he explained further.


The Selangor Government’s attentiveness is also supported by Rabiah Ahmad, 65, who said that the assistance helps her expenses.

“I stay with my child. My monthly expenses are in the range of more than RM300. It has been four years since I have been staying with my child.Alhamdulillah, we are happy with this assistance scheme.

Meanwhile, Loke Chee Yong, 67, said that the Jom Shopping vouchers can help senior citizens like himself, who live alone.

“I am very happy with this assistance. I personally spend close to RM30 par day on food. It is fun to buy groceries”

The Jom Shopping Programme in Bandar Tun Razak was attended by its Member of Parliament, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim who personally presented the vouchers worth RM100 to 60 senior citizens.

At a different programme prior to this, Abdul Khalid spent almost an hour chatting with visitors who were having breakfast at the Jalan Jujur 3 Hawker Centre.

He handed them bags containing leaflets from the Selangor Government apart from overlooking the parking area at the Taman Connaught Giant mall.
