KUCHING, Jan 26: National Unity Minister Datuk Aaron Ago Dagang emphasises that the Ministry of National Unity (KPN) plays a significant role in the success of the Malaysia Madani aspiration, which was envisioned by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
According to a news report published today by the Sarawak Public Communication Unit (Ukas), Aaron stated that his ministry is currently working on an action plan to make the Malaysia Madani aspiration a success.
“The Ministry of National Unity is currently actively planning an action plan to promote the concept of Madani society through the perspective of unity in diversity which is summarised under the initiative of the National Unity Policy (DPN),” he said today while speaking at the Sembang Perpaduan programme at Menara Perbadanan Labuan in Labuan.
Additionally, Aaron, who is also Kanowit MP, shared the Malaysian Happiness Index Report 2021 by the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM).
“Labuan was recorded as the happiest State with a score of 9.29. In this regard, Labuan can be used as a model for other areas in managing well-being, harmony, and unity in the community,” he noted.
Meanwhile, during the working visit, he had the opportunity to listen to a brief briefing on annual planning by agency representatives of the Department of Museums Malaysia (JMM) in the Labuan region and the Department of National Unity and National Integration (JPNIN) in the Federal Territory of Labuan.
In a separate programme, Aaron has delivered ‘RT Cares Bakul Rahmah’ packs to the B40 group from Kampung Patau-Patau 2 which is in line with the government’s policy to help vulnerable groups overcome the cost of living.
He said that the programme which is oriented towards social responsibility, especially by the Rukun Tetangga Community (KRT) is able to improve the well-being of the local community.
He also hoped that more such programmes would be implemented in the future, as well as a greater involvement of private agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
Apart from the working visit, the Kanowit MP also visited the Chimney Museum, and Kampung Sungai Labu Rural Library and spent time with children from Tabika Perpaduan Kampung Sungai Miri and Tabika Perpaduan Taman Perumahan Layang-Layangan. — DayakDaily
