The parliamentary constituencies involved were Langkawi, Padang Terap, Kota Star and Jerlun.
“The programme is a part of TNB’s corporate social responsibility initiative to help reduce the burden of the underprivileged. Two hundred students were selected from each constituency involved to receive this aid. Yesterday, it was distributed in Langkawi, tomorrow in Kota Star, while on Thursday in Jerlun,” said TNB Kedah General Manager (Distribution) Ismail Lathifi Teh @ Saman.
Students from the Padang Terap parliamentary constituency, aged between seven and 12, each received a set of school supplies here today.
