AFTER a successful initial run in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, The Star’s People’s Voice Campaign will be meeting residents at Bandar Botanic in Klang.
Themed You’ve Got The Power, The People’s Voice campaign was launched in April as a platform for residents to engage directly with their respective local authorities and relevant agencies.
The Bandar Botanic Residents Association (BBRA) will be playing host to the carnival set for Saturday, June 5.
Various activities have been planned for the carnival which will be held from 9am to 2pm.
Besides a day of fun, residents can look forward to raising issues that affect them with representatives from the local authorities who will be present at the event.
Special guest will be Klang Municipal Council president Mislan Tugiu.
When informed that the second People’s Voice carnival would be held in Klang, Mislan said he welcomed the move.
He said this was a recognition to the people of Klang, especially those in Bandar Botanic.
“Bandar Botanic is very unique and has a lot of greenery and beautiful landscaping.
“I am happy that this neighbourhood has been picked as the carnival’s first venue in Klang,’’ he said.
Representatives from developer Gamuda Land Bhd are also expected to attend the carnival.
Under the campaign, carnivals will be held twice a month at selected residential areas in the Klang Valley over the next 12 months.
RedFM will be broadcasting live from the venue and The People’s Voice cruisers will also be making rounds in the area.
