KUCHING: The Communications and Digital Ministry aims to turn the "Keretapi Sarong" flash mob programme into a National Month activity next year, says Fahmi Fadzil.

The Communications and Digital Minister said the programme that took place on Saturday (Sept 16) received encouraging response with the participation of over 10,000 people of various ages and races.

"It crossed my mind that we might discuss with the organisers to include it as part of the activities for National Month in the future.

"I hope that next year we can plan more programmes for National Month so that it won’t involve just flying the Jalur Gemilang,” he told reporters after the national-level Malaysia Day celebrations at Unity Stadium here Saturday night.

The Keretapi Sarong 2023 programme, with its theme of "Ethnicity and Unity", is designed to instil a love for the country through diversity in conjunction with Malaysia Day celebrations and is organised by Looco, an organisation that promotes cultural activities since 2017.

The programme this year also took place in five major cities, Johor Baru (along Sungai Segget), Kota Baru (LaRocka Park), Ipoh (KTMB Ipoh) and Kuala Terengganu (Kampung Budaya Terengganu) as well as London, the United Kingdom (Battersea Power Station as its final destination). - Bernama
