KEDAH government civil ser-vants have received a RM500 bonus each for the coming Hari Raya.
Mentri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir said the amount was banked in along with their June salary.
“The bonus is for those in Grade 54 and below, the same amount as announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak for Federal Government civil servants,” he said.
He was speaking to reporters after receiving a RM1mil food contribution from the Cenviro Group of Companies through the MyKasih Foundation at Dewan Seri Melor in Seri Mentaloon recently.
The aid comprising items such as rice, flour, sugar and cooking oil was channelled to Yayasan Prihatin Rakyat Kedah to be distributed to 7,200 selected families throughout the state.
