PANTU, Aug 26: Balai Ringin assemblyman Datuk Snowdan Lawan holds that Gabungan Parti Sarawak government may not be a perfect government, it is, however, a responsible and caring one.
He thus called on the voters in his area to retain GPS government in the coming election.
“The present state government led by GPS is not only very responsible but accountable. With so many years of experience in administering, the proven accountability is immensely felt by the people.
“Our sense of accountability towards our people and the state remains steadfast. The records show. There is no perfect government in this world. We may not be a ‘perfect’ government but we are a responsible and caring government.
“Therefore I wish to remind the people in my constituency to totally abandon and not to listen to the idea posed by the opposition that they are able to form the next state government. It’s an exaggeration.
“Their failure was manifested by their downfall as they collapsed miserably after 22 months in power. The only dividends they brought about were sufferings and discontinuity,” said Snowdan when officiating and closing the Randau session held with Sarawak Rural Supply Department (JBALB) and Sarawak Energy Berhad at Dewan Sri Pantu today.
About 250 community leaders attended this Randau session.
Snowdan, who is also Youth and Sports assistant minister recorded appreciation to the commitment made by the Ministry of Utilities through their respective agencies such as JBALB and Sarawak Energy by providing treated water and electricity supply coverage to the whole of Balai Ringin constituency in the next few years.
The Randau session today provided an opportunity for the community leaders to come face to face with the JBALB and Sarawak Energy personnel.
Snowdan said there is an extensive plan to provide treated water for the constituency and called on all especially landowners to cooperate so that pipelines can be laid and electricity poles can be erected with minimum hurdles such as exorbitant compensation demands.
On the new village headmen quota (47 for Balai Ringin) approved by the state government, Snowdan said it is meant to recognize the existing settlements or kampungs so that these village chiefs may be in the state government system.—DayakDaily
