JOHOR BAHRU, Dec 19 — The Keluarga Malaysia Sale (PJKM) initiative by the government to help reduce the cost of living was held simultaneously in 177 parliamentary constituencies this week.
In a statement today, the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) said the programme which started on Dec 4 will be held every fortnight until the end of March 2022 in all 222 parliamentary constituencies with the location given via a public announcement.
“The PJKM allows consumers to shop for daily necessities that are up to 20 per cent lower than market price.
“It is a collaborative effort by KPDNHEP, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industries (MAFI), the Ministry of Finance (MOF), agencies, wholesalers and retailers to deal with increasing prices not just in Malaysia, but globally, too,” the statement said.
Some of the things being offered at the sale are chicken, eggs, fish, vegetables, cooking oil, sugar, flour, rice and processed food.
This morning, KPDNHEP secretary general, Datuk Seri Hasnol Zam Zam Ahmad, went on a walkabout at the PJKM held at the Sembrong constituency community centre in Kluang.
