TEMERLOH – The “Jualan Sentuhan Rakyat” programme (PJSR) for the Temerloh parliamentary constituency recorded the highest sales, exceeding RM100,000, compared to three previous locations.
The chairman of the Temerloh branch of Friends of the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry (KPDNKK), Datuk Juhanis Abdul Aziz said the initial target of RM100,000 was reached after accumulating the recent sales of the PJSR in state constituencies Kuala Semantan, Lanchang and Mentakab.
“After reaching the target set by KPDNKK, we will continue to double efforts by earning as many sales in at least three oncoming programmes. The Post-14th General Election PJSR that will be held for three consecutive days after Nomination Day will increase the total of accumulated sales for the programme,” she told Bernama here today.
Juhanis, who is also Temerloh Wanita UMNO Division chief, commended the good cooperation established with participating supermarkets which contributed to success in reaching beyond the sales target.
She said 28 types of essentials such as rice, eggs and chicken were sold at cheap prices to lessen the people’s burden.
She also especially urged the community in the district to seize the opportunity provided by the government to buy various essentials that were sold cheaper than the market price. – BERNAMA
