If you are a Putrajaya resident and you ride a motorcycle of 150 cc and below, you may enjoy free petrol in the administrative capital twice a month, according to a Bernama report.

Intended for implementation on the second and third week of each month, the programme was aimed at reducing the financial burden of its residents, especially the younger generation, said federal territories minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Mansor.

“This programme was held twice in Labuan, followed by Bandar Tun Razak, Segambut, Bukit Bintang, Setiawangsa and Lembah Pantai in Kuala Lumpur. The initiative will be extended to other areas in phases after this, depending on the economic situation,” said Adnan.

The programmes had received encouraging response from the public, he added, following the Jom Isi Minyak programme held at the Precinct 9 Petronas station yesterday. The programme which started at 6pm yesterday saw 200 motorcycles filled with petrol, with motorcyclists reported to be waiting at the station from 5pm for free fuel.
