KUCHING, Oct 28: Democratic Action Party (DAP) Batu Kitang branch chairman Abdul Aziz Isa is urging Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) chairman Lo Khere Chiang to think outside the box on how to solve the traffic congestion along 6th Mile Jalan Penrissen rather than resorting to what he termed as “propaganda”.

Abdul Aziz in a press statement today said Lo was beating around the bush and not answering his questions regarding the traffic jam along 6th Mile Jalan Penrissen in a statement issued yesterday (Oct 27).

He said Lo, who is also Batu Kitang assemblyman, should be serious in fulfilling his duty as an elected representative rather than “beating around the bush”.


“As far as I know, whenever there is massive traffic congestion, he will do a Facebook Live and have discussions with the contractors but the minute he leaves, the traffic congestion continues.

“This is not the first time his political stunts failed to produce any concrete solutions.

“The public is fed up of his political stunts,” he said.

Abdul Aziz also questioned Lo on the progress of the Pan Borneo Highway project through the latter’s continuous monitoring of the project at the 7th Mile and 10th Mile viaduct construction and whether his ‘continuous monitoring’ will relieve the traffic congestion to Jalan Penrissen.

Abdul Aziz, who is also the special assistant to DAP Sarawak chairman Chong Chieng Jen, also questioned Lo on why the traffic congestion along Jalan Penrissen still occurred if he has been continuously communicating with Sarawak Public Works Department (JKR Sarawak).

He also criticised Lo for saying that the Pan Borneo Highway project was being constructed day and night.

Abdul Aziz said he moved around the Pan Borneo Highway project area, especially during the night and observed that Lo’s claims contradicted the reality.

He urged Lo to be transparent with the public by showing the contractual terms and conditions that has been signed and agreed between the appointed contractors with JKR Sarawak. — DayakDaily
