KUCHING, Mar 10: Sarawak government will turn Darul Hana development into a modern and comprehensive Malay village.
Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari said the project was steadily progressing and will become an exemplary model for other ongoing developments in the state.
“Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) will not only build houses at reasonable price with basic infrastructure, but we will also upgrade our river. We are currently building a ‘benteng’ to prevent erosion from Kampung Lintang to Kampung Tanjong. Next, we will build a riverbank up to Medan Niaga Satok under the 12th Malaysia Plan,” he said at the launch of Kuching North City Council (DBKU) Neighbourhood Program today.
Apart from that, a Malay Museum is also in the plan.
Abang Johari assured that the state government will bring improvements to these villages and regardless of any continuous modernisation that will take place, the culture and practices will be retained.
“The current development phase in the state requires that we focus on urban development to achieve a more sustainable level. Today’s best-practice of urban development encompasses all the important aspects of ensuring the quality of life of the people including adequate and efficient infrastructure, an environment that emphasises on clean and green, safe city concept, social and cultural development,” he asserted.
Meanwhile, he also urged DBKU to create a special platform for the community under its jurisdiction to address any issues so immediate action can be done.—DayakDaily
