MIRI, Oct 31: Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg has assured the people in Baram that the district will flourish with development as long as they stand united and give their undivided support towards the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS).

“GPS will help to ensure that Baram embraces change as long as the people in Baram continue to stand united with one another and give the mandate to GPS,” he asserted.

“Baram will definitely transform,” Abang Johari said when giving this assurance during the handing over of Sarawak Alternative Rural Electrification Scheme (Sares) projects to 13 longhouses within the Telang Usan constituency at Long Pillah in Baram today.

These Sares projects, worth RM35 million, have electrified the homes of more than 6,000 residents from 725 households in 13 villages namely Long Pilah, Long Luteng, Long Daloh Bestari, Long Miri, Long Tebangan, Long Liam Keliman, Long Sobeng, Long Selapun, Long Sebatang, Long Sengung, Long Pala, Long Buah and Long Buken.

He emphasised that the State government will continue focusing on the development of Baram and other rural areas.

“Less politicking but do more to help the rakyat, that is what we are doing, unlike those political parties in Semenanjung Malaysia, facing chaos as they compete against each other to be the next prime minister,” he pointed out.

Hence, he reminded the people in Sarawak to uphold strong unity among one another besides maintaining the stability of the government.

“They (referring to political parties in Peninsular Malaysia) should not create instability during this challenging times as we are still fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, they should instead help the rakyat, and not fighting for the PM position,” he said.
