KUCHING, May 28: The Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government will now focus on delivering sick projects that Sarawak was denied for 59 years.
Deputy Premier of Sarawak Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian said previously that there are a lot of development projects planned but with no money to implement them.
“If you ask the rural folk now, the issue is that we have many projects and money. But those projects are ‘sick’.
“Those outstanding projects are mostly on roads, water supply, and electricity.
“Under the GPS government, now that we have money, we are moving onto (delivering them),” he said when officiating at the lighting up ceremony of the White Cat statue in conjunction with the Gawai Dayak celebration at Jalan Padungan earlier tonight.
He also mentioned that Sarawak has the biggest budget compared to other states presently.
Like the White Cat, he also called upon the people to remain united and in harmony so that GPS will continue to fight for the State’s rights.
“Unlike the Opposition who asked the people to donate (when they were in power), GPS, under the lead of Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg, know where to look for money, and this is proven with a lot of money coming in which enable us to continue development for the people,” he added.
Among those present was Kuching South City Council (MBKS) mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng. — DayakDaily
