MELAKA: Municipal councils here will allow Ramadan bazaars to operate with strict adherence to standard operating procedures (SOPs).
Commenting on this, Hang Tuah Jaya Municipal Council (MPHTJ) president Datuk Shadan Othman said that no directives have been issued so far to stop the bazaars due to Covid-19 cases.
“We will continue the operations as normal, until there is an official directive, ” he said when contacted on Sunday (April 11).
Earlier, Melaka Historic City Council (MBMB) mayor Datuk Zainal Abu said 3,768 stall lots have been approved to operate at the Ramadan bazaars under its jurisdiction.
He said MBMB has also received applications to organise 12 bazaars throughout Ramadan.
The largest bazaar under MBMB’s purview is at Dataran Klebang, followed by Taman Seri Telok Mas and Jalan Hang Tuah.
