“The promise during the 13th General Election was to ask the Federal Government to improve infrastructure here.

“So I have mentioned this matter to the Minister, and I hope it can be done in the near future.Our efforts are ongoing because we do not want the people to be left out,” he said.

At the event, 100 residents from four villages received Shopping Coupons worth RM100 under the Jom Shopping (Let’s Go Shopping) programme in conjunction with Hari Raya.

The four villages consists of Kampung Perigi Nenas, Teluk Nipah, Pinang and Sungai Kembung.

A recipient, Aishah Kasbari, 82, described the contribution as an assistance to lessen the burden of recipients.
