Abdul Khalid said that should be elected as the representative of the area, he will ensure that Port Klang will be further developed, including Pulau Indah, to become more modern with commendable progress.
“Winning in Selangor is not enough, but we have to win at Putrajaya to make changes as a whole,” he said, confident that the people will support PR.
