King's visit to flood victims in Pekan lauded

PUTRAJAYA: The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah's visit to flood victims in Pekan, Pahang has received praises.

Sultan Abdullah was accompanied by Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah and three of their children, namely Tengku Arif Bendahara Tengku Muhammad Iskandar Ri'ayatuddin Shah, Tengku Panglima Muda Tengku Ahmad Ismail Mu'adzam Shah and Tengku Puteri Raja Tengku Puteri Jihan Azizah 'Athiyatullah.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong shared a post from Istana Negara's official Facebook page of the King's visit to areas affected by the floods.

The post, which included a short video, showed the King wading through floodwaters which were knee-deep.

"Very Good King (VGK1) and Very Good Queen (VGQ1)," Dr Wee commented on the post on Friday (Jan 15).

On Thursday (Jan 14), the King, Queen and their children visited flood victims at Kampung Serambi, Kampung Tanjong Medang, Kampung Acheh, Kampung Temai, Kampung Padang Rumbia, Kampung Pulau Rumput and Kampung Paloh Hinai.

Their Majesties also joined flood victims for lunch at a relief centre, which houses about 100 people, and handed contributions to them.
