DAP KKB by-election candidate promises to improve welfare

Pang Sock Tao of Pakatan Harapan claimed that one of her manifesto promises was to ensure the welfare of the people.

In a video she shared on her Facebook, she pledged that if given the opportunity, she would fill the State Assembly office team with representation from all races, including Chinese, Indians, Malays, and indigenous people, to continue the legacy of Ms. Lee Kee Hiong’s excellent services for effective communication.

“The Unity Government represents all races regardless of religious or background differences,” she said. 

She claimed that the Selangor state government is the most government among all states as it has the most welfare initiatives. 

“For example, for the Indian community, we have i-SEED, Selangor Empowerment, for Indian community entrepreneurs, where allocations or assistance of up to RM10,000 in the form of assets or business items will be allocated for those who want to start or engage in entrepreneurial activities,” Pang said. 

She later added: “Similarly, for young people who want to continue their studies at public or private higher education institutions, the state government will provide RM1,000 as a gift or assistance for young people who want to pursue higher education.

“And also for shopping vouchers regardless of Hari Raya, Chinese New Year, Deepavali, all layers, all races of Selangor’s children will enjoy shopping vouchers.”

She claimed that these are among the initiatives or policies of the Selangor state government. 

The Kuala Kubu Baharu by-election is slated for 11th May.
