KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob on Sunday (Dec 26) visited flood victims who have been allowed to return to their respective homes around Puchong near here.

He arrived at Al-Istiqamah Mosque located in the flood-affected area at 1.14pm to perform Zohor prayer before proceeding with his visit at 2.05pm.

The Prime Minister randomly visited the homes of victims to take a first-hand look at the situation of victims who lost almost everything in the disaster.

Ismail Sabri also went to inspect the Village Community Council Hall (MPKK) which is the aid collection centre for flood victims.

Also participating in the visit were Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim, Rural Development Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid and Chief of Defence Forces Gen Tan Sri Affendi Buang.

Meanwhile, flood victim, Mazalan Kadim, 44 when met by Bernama said the Prime Minister informed him of the RM1,000 assistance allocated by the government in their session.

"I have heard about the announcement but I am not sure how to go about applying for it,” he said.

Technician Mohd Hafiz Leong Abdullah, 29, said the Prime Minister lent him a sympathetic ear on his predicament after coming out of the disaster including difficulties in continuing his daily routine due to damaged electronic equipment.

"We appreciate the food aid and so on donated to us but we are also in need of other basic appliances such as a gas stove for cooking,” he said.- Bernama
