KUANTAN (Bernama): Aspects of the new normal and the standard operating procedures (SOPs) to contain the Covid-19 pandemic should be emphasised at all flood relief centres in Pahang, says Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.

He said he was confident that the state administration would be adequately prepared to deal with the floods during the monsoon season and reminded all parties to work together to ease the people's burden.

The King also told mosques in Pahang to hold regular solat hajat (prayer of need) to seek protection for the state from untoward incidents.

He said this at the end of a briefing on preparations to tackle the floods in Pahang for 2020/2021, which was given by Pahang police chief Datuk Seri Abd Jalil Hassan here on Friday (Nov 13).

Tengku Panglima Raja Tengku Amir Nasser Ibrahim Shah Al-Sultan Abdullah also attended the briefing.

His Majesty thanked the state government and related agencies for making thorough preparations for the floods, including by presenting the latest data at the hour-long briefing, which began at 10.30 am at Istana Abdulaziz.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail and state secretary Datuk Seri Dr Sallehuddin Ishak were among those present at the briefing. – Bernama
