This year, Ramadan bazaars are allowed to operate under stricter adherence to SOPs and monitoring.
According to the Minister of Housing and Local Government, Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin, they will be detailing the matter with the National Security Council (MKN) in an upcoming meeting.
“We’ll review the SOPs once more to be neater and more efficient. I don’t see it as an issue now that economic activities are allowed.
“Since markets and night markets are now allowed to operate, Ramadan bazaars can be carried out too,” she told reporters during a media session of the A.I. robotic technology launching ceremony at Pasar Ayam Amanjaya in Ipoh yesterday (March 16).
Present was the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Khairy Jamaluddin.
As of now, in Perak, only Teluk Intan Municipal Council (MPTI) has allowed operation of Ramadan bazaars following morning and night market regulations in enforcement.
Other local authorities, such as Ipoh City Council (MBI), Manjung Municipal Council (MPM) and Batu Gajah District Council (MDBG) will only allow Ramadan bazaars to operate following the state government’s decision.
