SHAH ALAM, 4 April: The Youth and Sports Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, has been reminded to not take information from ‘any coffee-shop’ to continue to blame the Selangor Government with allegations of not being committed to the restoration of two hockey stadiums in the state.

The Executive Councillor in charge of Youth and Sports, Dr Ahmad Yunus Hairi, said that the State Government is serious in repairing the stadiums as soon as the working papers are presented for approval by the State Government Council Meeting (MMKN), which is now in its final stage.

He said that the process to repair the Pandamaran and Petaling Hockey Stadiums will be done according to established procedures set by the Selangor Government upon approval.

Commenting on the allegations, Yunus said that the State Government will not compromise on matters involving the safety of visitors, especially if it is one of the hallmarks of Selangor, like the Shah Alam Stadium.

“But this does not mean stadiums for other sports are discriminated in terms of repairing their training location. There are training centres and stadiums where the process has to be hastened, while others are delayed,” he said.
