The programme, organised by the FT MyPPP Youth Movement, will continue for a year.
KUALA LUMPUR: From April onwards, the Federal Territories (FT) Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth wing will be giving free petrol to motorcyclists at every parliamentary constituency in FT each month.
Its chief Mohd Razlan Mohammad Rafii said the assistance was to ease the burden of the people, especially the motorcyclists.
He said the wing had targeted 117,000 motorcyclists at 13 constituencies to enjoy the free petrol programme for a year.
“We will give to all regardless of their background and political standing.
“We understand that quite a number of motorcyclists are underprivileged and the government is concerned over its people,” he said.
Razlan said this to reporters at the “Free Petrol Top Up for Motorcycle” programme organised by the FT MyPPP Youth Movement here last night.
Also present was the movement’s chief, Meshach JV.
Razlan said details of the free programme would be announced soon.
Earlier, about 600 riders of 150cc motorcycles and below received free petrol at a station in Taman Seri Rampai from 8pm.
