VEGETABLES from the wholesale market in Selayang, Gombak, are expected to increase by 30% to 70% because of the limited manpower under new rules for operations during the movement-control order period.

Stall owners at the market, which is the main distribution hub for fresh produce to other markets, shops and supermarkets in the Klang Valley, have reduced their stock to cope with the requirement that they use only local labour, said Kuala Lumpur Vegetables Wholesalers’ Association chairman Wong Keng Fatt.

  • I strongly seek the authorities to wipe out if not clean up those non nationals people who are fish mongers at Selayang market especially those operating inside the markets. How in the first place these people managed to operate? Is there a syndicate acting as middleman between them and DBKL? It all smells fishy right.
