A year after Pakatan Harapan was given the mandate by the people in the 14th general election, the Selangor government says it will double its efforts to shoulder the trust and responsibilities of the people.
Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari said the role of the state Harapan leadership is to gain the confidence of the people so that the coalition can continue ruling the country successfully.
Amirudin said that as menteri besar, he will continue to emphasise the welfare of the people, apart from empowering Selangor as a developed state.
He added, however, that making Selangor a developed state cannot be achieved overnight.
"We have carried on with our various changes in the state administration, apart from ensuring the management of the state is smooth, while avoiding corruption or wastage.
"Similarly, the implementation of caring programmes for the people will be the theme and example, until Selangor becomes a model state in the new administration of the country,” he said here.
Among the agendas in focus are the Peduli Rakyat initiatives, which offer various forms of assistance to the needy, including the Health Care scheme and Rumah Selangorku scheme.
He said various Peduli Rakyat programmes would be extended to assist and improve the life and welfare of the people in this state.
In this regard, he hoped the cooperation between the state and federal governments would be strengthened, so that the aspirations and policies of Harapan will be fulfilled.
“So obviously our responsibilities as leaders would not be easy and we need to implement them conscientiously.
“Apart from that, we need to reflect each time when evaluating ourselves so as to overcome our weaknesses and meet the aspirations of the people,” he said.
