In his address, Anil Shah thanked the governor for taking time off from his busy schedule to attend the dinner.

“Among our aims are to build a community which is vigilant of crime and the surroundings.

“Safety is a community effort of all and everyone needs to play their part,” he added.

He also urged well-wishers to support the Yayasan TYT which offers aid and assistance to the needy and underprivileged community irrespective of race or religion in the state.

He also thanked the many sponsored well-wishers who have made it possible for CCPSS to carry out their activities.

“Our governor is a visionary leader as he is leading the state in all areas and sectors,” added Anil Shah.
