GEORGE TOWN: Datuk Keramat assemblyman Jagdeep Singh Deo has called for the rebranding of two Federal programmes now that Pakatan Harapan is in power.

Jagdeep, who is Penang Local Government, Housing and Town and Country Planning Committee chairman, said he would propose for the Program Perumahan 1Malaysia (PR1MA) to be rebranded as Program Peru­mahan Harapan and Tabung Penyeleng­garaan 1Malaysia (TP1M) as Tabung Penye­lenggaraan Harapan Malaysia.

“I will also request for all outstanding applications from Penang be given imme­diate consideration and approval.

“According to our records, since the TP1M was introduced, 143 applications were submitted from five districts in Penang to the previous Barisan Nasional government, but only 29 were approved.

“Since 2016, no applications from Penang were approved while several other states have been approved,” Jagdeep claimed du­ring a press conference at the Taman Free School market here yesterday.

He also said he would be going to Putrajaya with a delegation to submit several requests on behalf of Penang to the new housing and local government minister.

He added that he would get clarification on whether the TP1M still existed and on the direction and objective of the new Pakatan Harapan Government in addressing the maintenance of housing schemes in the country.
