Penangites Excited Over BN Promises
Hundreds of Penang residents today flocked to the 1Malaysia People’s Housing Programme (PR1MA) booth at the “Promises Fulfilled Tour” programme at the Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) campus here to apply for affordable houses.
Visitors approached said they were excited over the online application launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak who came to Penang today on a day-long visit.
Noraini Awang, 46, said the prime minister’s announcement on the government building 20,000 units of affordable houses in the state was welcome news.
“We have had enough of renting. We are looking for a more comfortable house as our children have grown up. It is no longer suitable to live in a small flat,” the mother of five told Bernama.
Kelvin Tan, 36, said the online application saved time and made it easier for buyers.
