KUCHING, Nov 9: The housing congestion problem faced by Kampung Hulu residents can be addressed by building 300 houses on 40 acres that are available along Jalan Sawmill in Saratok.
Kalaka assemblyman Datuk Abdul Wahab Aziz, who gave the suggestion when debating the State Budget 2019 today, urged the relevant housing authority to fix this problem quickly.
Abdul Wahab also proposed that 400 houses to be built in the vicinity of Kampung Hilir Melayu Lama in Saratok as the government had compensated the landowners, but the land had not been surveyed yet.
“I hope the state housing agency can look into the survey matter so that this housing issue can be resolved promptly,” he said.
Abdul Wahab told the august House that he did not want these issues to grow to the extent of creating social problems for the affected villagers. — DayakDaily
