Starting from today until 31 August, roadside parking in Kuala Lumpur will be free, said Federal Territories Minister, Tan Sri Annuar Musa.
He said on Twitter that the decision was made to reduce the rakyat‘s expenditures so that they can use it for other means.
I agree that from tomorrow until 31st August, all road side parking in the Kuala Lumpur City area is free. Consumers do not have to pay anything and hopefully the savings can be used to buy necessities for their family.Federal Territories Minister, Tan Sri Annuar Musa via Twitter
So far, the Kuala Lumpur City Hall hasn’t issued a statement on the matter and it’s reported by The Star that even officers were surprised, saying that they were not aware of the announcement made by the Minister.
Netizens are equally flabbergasted
Malaysians were also somewhat surprised that the Minister chose to announce the initiative during a time when most can’t even go out of their homes due to the Full Movement Control Order (FMCO) and the soon to be implemented Enhance Movement Control Order (EMCO).
Some areas in the capital and also multiple districts in Selangor are expected to be under the EMCO starting 3 July until 16 July.
