SERDANG, March 18 – Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi attended a luncheon with more than 2,500 participants of the National Transformation 2050 (TN50) @Bagan Datuk at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (Maeps) here today.
In his speech, Ahmad Zahid, who is also Bagan Datuk Member of Parliament, said the recent Perak state executive council meeting had approved the establishment of the Bagan Datuk district.
“Now that Bagan Datuk has its own office and district council, the administration of the people can be carried out in a more orderly manner,” he said at the event that was also attended by his wife Datin Seri Hamidah Khamis.
Last year, the Sultan of Perak Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah declared Bagan Datuk as the 12th district in Perak. Prior to this, Bagan Datuk was under the purview of Hilir Perak district and placed under the administration of the Teluk Intan Municipal Council (MPTI).
At the event, Ahmad Zahid also launched the Bagan Datuk district tagline ‘Mendukung Tradisi, Menjulang Transformasi’ and the district theme song performed by Datuk M.Daud Kilau, Yassin and Altimet.
Also present were actors Fattah Amin, Adiputra and Den Wahab. – BERNAMA
