KUCHING, June 10: Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg today urges Satok residents to continue to uphold peace and harmony.

He also advised them to continue to work closely with their elected representatives, including highlighting issues affecting them so that their elected representatives could fix them promptly.

Speaking at the ‘Ihsan Ramadan PBB Satok’ event organised by Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Pemuda and Wanita wings of Satok branch here this afternoon, Abang Johari said if Sarawak continued to be peaceful and harmonious, businesses would prosper and they would then be able to contribute more tithe or ‘zakat’, which were used to help the needy.

“I am most thankful that despite the current situation, Sarawak remains peaceful and doing well. Because of that, many Muslim corporate and business bodies are contributing more ‘zakat’.

“We pray that Sarawak will continue to remain peaceful in years to come.”

Saying that there would be more infrastructure development for Petra Jaya and Satok in the future, he urged the constituents to work closely with their elected representatives to ensure good delivery of these projects.

Petra Jaya MP Datuk Fadillah Yusof, who was also present, pledged to continue to work hard for the benefit of his constituents.

“If anything is lacking, don’t be afraid to point it out so that we can work together to ensure all development plans for Petra Jaya are delivered smoothly,” he said.

A total of 215 low-income folk from Satok were given daily necessities at the gathering in conjunction with the coming Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration. — DayakDaily
