Update 11th August
One Anonymous alerted me on a report in the Malay daily Berita Harian that the above notification is indeed a rumour. The Corporate Secretary to the Selangor State Government, Hassan Manaf has confirmed that the report is inaccurate. According to him, those senior citizen from the age of 60 and above who has resided in the state for a year or more is entitle to an insurance protection policy of RM3,500. However, no further details were given.
Sorry for the inconvenience caused. Meanwhile, we shall wait for the official announcement from the state government to further confirm this dubious report on the PKR rule state government's promise to its senior citizens. Nevertheless, I welcome their thoughts and sincerity in fulfilling their promise despite the setbacks they faced from the Federal Government through funds allocation and other sabotages. Honestly. I would have prefer them to make a cash payout to its senior citizens as an insurance protection policy cannot benefit the senior citizen directly. How about part cash and part insurance scheme on a 50:50 ratio for the said scheme? Think it over for the senior citizens...
