The F1 money should be used for the rakyat of Bagan Pinang and Seremban. For 5 decades of rule they have done little. They have sidelined Bagan Pinang where the infrastructure is wanting. Buses ply the town, but getting out of the village to come into PD town can be a shore. And who lives outside PD? We are not asking for an F1 t4ack to be home for our dream team. Do what Selangor did for its citizens, hardly 6 months after taking over. The Selangor Government gave its citizens BENEFITS, and non-taxable benefits at that. Here is what they got!

Thank you Selangor for taking steps the Federal Government should have taken. Maternity leave is now 90 days and the health of senior citizens is being looked after:
Female civil servants with the Selangor Government are now entitled to 90 days maternity leave starting this year. Announcing this yesterday, Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said the extra days of leave was part of the state’s economic welfare programme.
“Husbands whose wives gave birth will also enjoy a 14-day paternity leave, up from a week previously. Female staff whose husbands pass away, will also get 30 days’ leave, compared to three days emergency leave in the past,” he told reporters after presenting appointment letters to more than 6,000 village committee members here yesterday.
The Pakatan Rakyat state government had proposed the extra days after it came into power last year.
On another matter, Khalid said Selangor was meeting with various groups, including insurance companies, to work out a plan to help the 300,000 to 400,000 senior citizens in the state to cope with their medical expenses.
Under the programme, senior citizens might only need to pay a maximum of RM5 each time they received treatment from a clinic, he said, adding that the elderly must, however, be registered with the state government.
