KUCHING, Sept 17 — The Communications and Digital Ministry (KKD) aims to turn the flash mob programme called Keretapi Sarong into a National Month activity next year.

Its minister, Fahmi Fadzil said the programme that took place yesterday received encouraging response with the participation of over 10,000 people of various ages and races.

“It crossed my mind that we might discuss with organisers about including the programme as part of the activities for National Month in the future.

“I hope that next year we can plan more programmes for the National Month so that it won’t involve just flying the Jalur Gemilang flag,” he told reporters after the national-level Malaysia Day celebrations at Unity Stadium here last night.
