SIMANGGANG, Sept 22: PRS Women chief Datuk Seri Doris Brodie calls on all its members to be ‘little ambassadors’ for GPS.
She urged them to explain the objectives, focuses and policies of the state ruling coalition to the people.
“The masses must be made to understand that GPS (Gabungan Parti Sarawak) is not mere rhetoric but we act and execute what we promise. For example, the tabling of the 2020 Budget had allocated RM6.6 billion for development purposes in Sarawak in which RM4.1 billion or 63 per cent has been set aside for rural development.
“Also, when we were faced with the Covid-19 pandemic, the GPS-led state government was swift to come up with stimulus packages totalling approximately RM2.25 billion to mitigate the impact of the pandemic.
“These are amongst some of the initiatives taken by the state government to ensure that Sarawak and her people’s well-being are attended to. The GPS-led government is a people-centric and development-focused government,” said Doris while speaking at the Berandau session organised jointly by Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) Women’ Education Bureau and Simanggang Division PRS Women.
Amongst the topics discussed during the session include GPS’ formation, its objectives and policies, current political scenarios in Sarawak and at the federal level, as well as the role of women in politics.
The session was moderated by Deputy PRS Women chief Cr Roseline Neging while the panel speakers were Doris, PRS Women’s education bureau chief Cr Misiah Abdullah and PRS Women exco-member Cr Donna Petrus. Simanggang Division PRS Women chief Datin Annie Lai also spoke.
The Berandau session was held at the Sri Aman Civic Centre and attended by approximately 300 participants, mostly women from throughout Simanggang. — DayakDaily
