MB Khalid : RM15mil for 'information war' in Selangor

The Selangor government has allocated RM15 million to enhance the delivery of information in the state, to counter 'BN propaganda and biased news coverage' by the print and electronic media.

NONE"If we consider the population of 5.2 million in Selangor, this amount is equal to RM3 from every person," revealed Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim this morning when opening the 2010 stage budget dialogue.

He said the move is intended to provide people in Selangor with information that will enable them to make wise decisions.

The fund will be used to spread information through the state-owned media including TVSelangor, the Selangor Kini portal andSelangor Kini newspaper.

"We will explore the potential of creating Radio Selangor to expand the spread of information," he said.

Khalid said he had consulted the state treasury which had agreed that the allocation is acceptable based on its importance.

Some 300 state government officers and representatives of GLCs and NGOs are attending the dialogue alongside parliamentarians and state assemblypersons.
