Kg Baru Development Corporation Bill For Dewan Rakyat In October – Raja Nong Chik
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 21 (Bernama) — A bill to set up a corporation to govern development in Kampung Baru here will be tabled in the Dewan Rakyat at its session beginning in October, Federal Territories and Urban Well-being Minister Raja Datuk Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said on Saturday.
The draft of the Kampung Baru Development Corporation Bill was now with the Attorney-General’s Chambers, he told reporters after handing over sarong, batik material and “duit raya” (Aidilfitri donations) to 783 poor people and orphans.
The event was organised jointly by the Kampung Baru Jamek Mosque and the Titiwangsa Umno Division at the mosque.
Raja Nong Chik said the corporation, which would be operational next year, would serve as the governing body for development in Kampung Baru, a 110-year-old enclave spread over 90.2 hectares and comprising seven village-like sectors with a population of 35,000 in the heart of this city.
At the event, the popular Kampung Baru Mosque “bubur lambuk” (a rice porridge with herbs) was distributed to the aid recipients and other people in Kampung Baru, as part of the personal contribution of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
Najib and Rosmah had contributed 50 huge pots of the “bubur lambuk” to be served to the people on Aug 18, 21 and 25. The mosque serves the porridge daily during the Ramadan fasting month.
