PUTRAJAYA: Standard chicken will soon be sold at RM8 per kilogramme in Kuala Lumpur, down from RM8.90 currently, says Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim.

He said the price could be implemented after the ministry through Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) lowers rental for business premises owned by the local authority.

"We will reduce the price of chicken in Kuala Lumpur from RM8.90 per kg currently to RM8 per kg by giving flexible lease on DBKL business premises.

"If lowering the rent is still not sufficient, we will give free (rental) to allow them to lower the price of chicken and other items," he told reporters after launching the KWP Sihat dan Hebat programme here on Thursday (Aug 18).

Shahidan said the price of standard chicken in Putrajaya would also be reduced to below RM8 per kg in the next two weeks, compared to RM8.50 currently.

Last July 21, Shahidan announced that from Aug 1, chicken prices in Putrajaya were set at RM8.50 per kg, lower than the retail ceiling price of RM9.40 per kg. – Bernama
