PETALING JAYA: A town hall meeting involving about 3,000 civil servants with Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will be held next week in Putrajaya.

The event organised by the National Institute of Public Administration (Intan) will allow the civil servants to get a better understanding of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government.

"Mahathir will also be presenting his perspective and plans to manage the administration of the government.

Intan said the town hall session to be held at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre, will allow civil servants to impart their ideas and views to the Prime Minister.

theSun had recently reported that a number of officials appointed by the PH government had become victims of "sabotage" by those out to derail the administration.

This has occurred in at least three ministries, resulting in the removal of a senior civil servant, who allegedly masterminded the sabotage at one ministry.

In response to theSun's report, Chief Secretary to the Government, Tan Sri Ali Hamsa said he had instructed all secretaries-general and heads of service to investigate any possible sabotage attempts aimed at derailing the current administration.

He said any deliberate attempt to sabotage and undermine the government and its administration will not be tolerated.

Mahathir had said recently that there were concerns about the loyalty of some civil servants as some were still supportive of the previous Barisan Nasional government.

He said there were many civil servants who voluntarily took part in the recent general election and campaigned for Barisan.

He said PH was doubtful on whether their loyalty is to the old (Barisan) government or the new government.

Intan said the town hall session will also help the civil servants to learn how to carry out their jobs in a professional manner with integrity.
