KUCHING, Dec 30: SUPP Public Complaints Bureau chief Wilfred Yap urges the federal government to focus on strenthening infrastructure development in the country as it is a basic need for the people to want better and improved infrastructure.

“It should be the top priority for the federal government under Pakatan Harapan (PH), and I hope that the government would always place the needs of the people for improved infrastructure development as top priority,” according to Yap in a press statement today.

The Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) leader also called for an increase in federal allocations to the state constituency of Kota Sentosa to repair and upgrade public infrastructure.

He disclosed that Kota Sentosa constituency which also covers Stampin Resettlement Scheme is a large area to develop and assessment rates paid by residents to Kuching South City Commission and Padawan Municipal Council are not enough to carry out the necessary development projects to better the lives of residents.

“[I] hope that the PH federal government will put “people over politics” and increase allocations to the state constituency of Kota Sentosa as such allocations are urgently needed for the reconstruction and upgrading of old and dilapidated roads and drains,” he added.

Meanwhile, Yap who is also SUPP Kota Sentosa branch chairman revealed that a request from residents of Lorong 4 in Jalan Sungai Tapang, for urgent repairs to a dilapidated road section has been forwarded to the relevant authorities.

“Following the request for assistance received, the matter was immediately communicated to Engineering Department of Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) and the repair works will be carried out immediately upon the availability of funds,” he said.

SUPP PCB is always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone facing problems or who comes across problems of public interest but does not know how to deal with it.

Anyone requiring assistance may call SUPP Public Complaint’s mobile number at 016-7797688 or 082-246999 or go directly to the SUPP Head Office here to request for assistance. — DayakDaily
