DR. MAHATHIR LAUNCHES OFFICIAL NEW PUTRJAYA SIGN

PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): Prime Minister Tun Dr Ma-hathir Mohamad on Monday unveiled the ‘Putrajaya’ sign, the latest landmark at the federal government’s admin-istrative centre.
With Perdana Putra, which houses the Prime Minister’s offi ce in the back-ground, the stainless steel sign in the form of the letters P, U, T, R, A, J, A, Y and A has colourful graphics that also feature the Jalur Gemil-ang.
The ceremony was held at Dataran Putra, Precinct 1 here and was also attended by Putrajaya Corporation (PPj) president Datuk Dr Aminuddin Hassim.

According to Aminuddin, the sign was in-spired by young PPj offi cers as a manifestation of the entirety of Putrajaya as the federal government’s admin-istrative centre.
“Alhamdulillah, we were able to build it within a short time and Dataran Putra, where development of Putrajaya started, was chosen as its location,” he said.

Aminuddin said the graphic image on the letters would be changed every six months based on the theme of any current event.
“The prime minister is very happy and satisfi ed with the design and wants more ideas to be implemented to make Putrajaya cheerful,” he add-ed. – Bernama
