SHAH ALAM: Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari has announced a special Hari Raya Aidilfitri incentive of half-a-month's salary or a minimum of RM1,000 for the state's civil service.

The announcement was made at a morning gathering of civil servants at the state secretariat's Dewan Jubli Perak on Friday (April 23).

"Although we are facing big challenges, our collections were good," said Amirudin.

Besides the civil servants, executive councillors and elected representatives will also receive the bonus.

The special payout will also be extended to the various levels of community leaders.

Amirudin said in his speech that everyone was in a situation they had never expected with the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to the Mentri Besar, not only was the annual budget passed last year but also three economic stimulus packages.

He said having such a big financial commitment was a trying challenge given the slow movement of economic activities due to the pandemic.

"We managed to go through it stoically and because of our patience and strength, we did not have a deficit but instead a surplus in state funds," said Amirudin.

Amirudin said a bigger challenge was awaiting as the state has embraced digitalisation to move towards becoming a smart state.

He added that digilisation must not only be at the state administrative level but also throughout the state.

Amirudin added that the state and its civil servants must also be prepared to face and handle more challenges.
