KULAIJAYA (Johor), May 13 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun
Razak today praised the "Kembara Mahkota Johor", saying the unique annual royal
motorcycle tour programme has endeared the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim ibni
Almarhum Sultan, to the people of all levels in the state.
"Kembara Mahkota Johor is a programme unique to Johor. It reflects the concern
of the Sultan of Johor for his people," he said at the launch of the programme
at TJ Mart, Saleng, here.
The four-day programme beginning today will see a motorcycle convoy led by the
sultan and the Tunku Mahkota of Johor, Tunku Ismail Idris, crisscross the state
covering a total distance of 1,012 kilometres.
Najib, who arrived in Johor Baharu yesterday evening, flagged off the Kembara
Mahkota Johor 2012, watched by thousands of people of all races.
The programme enables the sultan to meet the people along the route and extend
charity to the poor.
