These agencies are the Legal Chambers' Office, Forestry Department, Public Works Department, Agriculture Department, Social Welfare Department, Syariah Judicial Department, and Drainage and Irrigation Department.
The announcement was made after attending a Ramadan event with civil servants.
At the event, Bernama quoted him as saying: "I have heard rumblings from federal officers in the state who feel that they have been marginalised while they work hard to develop Selangor with dedication and loyalty."
Also present at the ceremony were Selangor State Secretary Datuk Mohd Amin Ahmad Ahya and state Financial Officer Datuk Azmie Diron.
