Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir said this followed the federal government’s move of giving a special payment of RM500 to civil servants to prepare for their Aidilfitri celebration.
“The bonus will be given to permanent, contract and part-time staff including those in the local authorities and statutory bodies.
“However, the special bonus does not include government pensioners as they have pension and they also receive a special financial assistance of RM250 from the federal government.”
He said this after the handing-over of Raya goodies contributed by the state government and Welfare Body of the Wives of Perak Elected Representatives (Baiduri) for the security forces, here, yesterday.
Asked on the action to be taken by Perak Umno against members who sabotaged the party, Zambry said there must be sufficient evidence before any action could be taken as it should not be based on rumour.
