Seniors show their support

MORE than 200 senior citizens from Kampung Melayu in Penang have pledged their support for the state government's Senior Citizens Appreciation Programme.

Kampung Melayu Village Security and Development Committee (JKKK) deputy chairman Arifin Abidin said the residents were thankful for the RM100 given to them under the programme.

"We have not received any complaints from residents that the money was allegedly obtained from gaming activities and that it is haram," he said to reporters at the presentation of certificates to new committee members of Jalan Zoo JKKK at Kampung Melayu.

The certificates were presented by state executive councillor Wong Hon Wai who is also Air Itam assemblyman.

It was reported that the state government has set aside RM20mil for the programme from the state's savings and not from gaming activities as alleged by certain quarters.

Wong said there were about 5,000 registered senior citizens in his constituency.
