PUTRAJAYA: Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Zuki Ali (pic) has been checking roadblock operations jointly carried out by the police and the armed forces at several locations.
Mohd Zuki, who was accompanied by Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani and National Security Council director-general Datuk Mohd Rabin Basir, inspected several roadblocks mounted at Persiaran Utara in Putrajaya, along the Federal Highway as well as at the Sungai Besi, Putrajaya, Jalan Duta and Gombak toll plazas yesterday.
In a post on his Facebook page, Mohd Zuki said he spent almost 20 minutes at each roadblock to observe the operation and distribute food baskets to armed forces and police personnel.
“Overall, things are running smoothly with the standard operating procedures adhered to, ” he said, adding that he also managed to chat with some road users.
“Most of them are the household heads who are out to shop for daily essentials. This shows people are complying with the SOP, ” he said.
According to Mohd Zuki, almost 70,000 personnel were being deployed at the 930 roadblocks nationwide under Ops Benteng.
He also took the opportunity to express his heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to every civil servant, especially the frontliners who have risked getting exposed to Covid-19 during the MCO.
“I thank everyone for their sacrifices, dedication and unwavering efforts in providing the best service to the people, ” he said. — Bernama
