IPOH: Perak executive council member Razman Zakaria said he will not let his mistake stop him from continuing with his programmes in his constituency.
The state Education, Human Capital Development, Non-Governmental Organisation and Civic Society Committee chairman said he would adhere to standard operating procedures when attending future programmes.
"As a leader, we need to go down to the ground to meet with constituents. If we don't, we cannot solve problems," he told reporters after visiting the Ipoh Central Kitchen in Greentown on Thursday (April 23).
"The incident has not affected my schedules and programmes," he added.
Razman and Deputy Health Minister Datuk Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali had drawn flak from netizens for having a meal at tahfiz belonging to Razman on Saturday (April 18) amid the movement control order (MCO).
Both have since apologised.
When asked whether the police had called him after the incident, Razman said they had not.
"I already gave my statement to the police on Sunday (April 19). Since this is now a police matter, I will let them handle it," he said.
