Welfare programmes for all S’gor folk

September 10, 2012

Selangor BN coordinator Mohd Zin Mohamed says when BN comes to power, people in the state will enjoy programmes regardless of race and religion.

SHAH ALAM: Selangor people will enjoy welfare programmes for all, regardless of political affiliation, race and religion, when Barisan Nasional (BN) comes to power at the next general election.

Selangor BN coordinator Mohd Zin Mohamed said welfare programmes of the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat government are flawed as there were complaints of favouritism in the senior citizens and Tabung Warisan Anak Selangor (TAWAS) schemes.

e also explained that the allocation for the salary increase of KAFA (fardhu ain class) Islamic religious teachers was actually obtained from the federal government.

“BN’s welfare programmes in Selangor will not have elements of favouritism as we hold fast to the principle of helping all eligible citizens, regardless of political affiliation, race, and religion.”

Mohd Zin also slammed the Selangor government for failing to carry out welfare programmes in a transparent and fair manner.

For example, he said, to date, there are 12 low-cost flats which have yet to enjoy free water supply.

Meanwhile, several residents regretted that since Pakatan ruled the state, their welfare is no longer important while others claimed they were marginalised due to different political beliefs.

Sabariah Kasan 54, said that she never received any help from Pakatan but every Ramadan or school session, BN representatives would visit her house to give aid.

“I have never seen Pakatan representatives and don’t even [know] who is the representative here. Failing health prevented me from leaving the house and usually BN representatives will come to offer help,” she added.

For settlers of Felda Bukit Cherakah, Kapar in Klang, they are still waiting for land titles to their housing sites.

They claimed that after their oil palm plots were sold to developers in 1996, they never received the land titles as promised, prompting some to move elsewhere.

Salina Saharoodin, daughter of one of the settlers, fears for the future of her family as the housing site they are staying has no title.

“During election campaign, Pakatan promised us land titles which remained unfulfilled. They are not doing anything for our future,” she said in dismay.
