More funding for new villages
SHAH ALAM: Development allocations for Selangor new villages have been increased from RM200,000 before 2008 to RM5.4 million in 2009, to help with infrastructure upgrades.
“In the past, each village was only allocated RM2,500 annually but this amount isn’t enough for development,” said state executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah (Seri Kembangan-DAP).
Ean Yong said said this in response to a question from Lau Weng San (Kampung Tunku-DAP).
In 2011, RM5 million was allocated for development projects and programmes.
Allocations will be further increased this year as an additional RM1 million will be allocated from the Selangorku grant, bringing it up to RM6 million.
