Selangor State Local Government Committee chairman Ronnie Liu Tian Khiew officially appointed The Selangor State Level Disability Committees on today. Finally we’re able to see some positive changes happening for us in the state.
He said that, these Committee will have to actively include and work with people with disabilities with all types of categories at least once a month.
All 12 local councils in Selangor have been ordered to set up disability committees within few months as part of the state government's plan to improve the quality of lives of disabled Malaysians in towns and cities.
The Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ), however, has been exempted from the ruling as they already have a very active disability committee going within its council since the Pakatan government was formed in 2008.
All the 11 other councils will have to set up their committees by soon.
On Monday, March 28, 2011 we (Selangor State Level Disability Committees) will be having a special follow up meeting at the headquarters of the Majlis Perbandaran Selayang (MPS) in Bandar Baru Selayang, Selangor.
