The Mayor of Ipoh, Dato’ Rumaizi Baharin @ Md Daud expressed his appreciation to the residents of Garden Villa Sunway City, Ipoh (GVSC) who live in harmony.
Rumaizi said the togetherness of GVSC residents can be seen through the Jalur Gemilang Waving Campaign which took place at the GVSC entrance compound.
“I am impressed to see the cooperation of various races in ensuring the success of this programme. Through this, they managed to evoke the spirit of unity and patriotism in conjunction with the 64th Independence Day this year.
“The spirit of multiracial unity is in line with the concept of the Malaysian Family introduced by the Prime Minister recently.
If the community can strengthen this concept, I am confident the country will be more prosperous and harmonious,” he said in a press conference after the end of the Jalur Gemilang Waving Campaign with GVSC residents here today (August 30).
“The current COVID-19 pandemic was not an obstacle for GVSC citizens to come together and celebrate this national day. The harmonious atmosphere is the result of the ongoing practice of mutual respect regardless of race and religion,” she said.
The programme also saw the planting of decorative Frangipani flowers at the GVSC entrance by the Ipoh Mayor, followed by Puteri Holijah and Secretary of the GVSC Residents Association, M Banthunathan.
“GVSC is one of the housing areas that’s been occupied by more than 4,000 residents since 20 years ago. Through the association that has been established, our community has benefited greatly.
“We plan to beautify this housing estate area by improving the existing landscapes for the comfort of recreational activities.
We hope this proposal receives MBI’s feedback and support,” he said.
