PRS Youth chief: BKSS 8.0 will ensure business sustainability

Datuk Snowdan Lawan

KUCHING, Jan 29: Bantuan Khas Sarawakku Sayang (BKSS) 8.0 will provide relief to the rakyat and small-medium enterprises (SMEs) to ensure business sustainability, said Datuk Snowdan Lawan.

The Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) Youth chief said the assistance, which runs for six months until June this year, is a strategic measure to mitigate the government’s move with Phase Four of the National Recovery Plan (NRP).

“Though the 12th Sarawak Election (PRN12) is over, the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government continues to work and honours what it promised and pledged.

“We don’t work only when election nears. As soon as PRN12 is over, our tasks begin. Our manifestos are our guidance,” he said when asked for his thoughts regarding the launching of the BKSS 8.0 package worth RM285.47 million by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg recently.

Snowdan, also Balai Ringin assemblyman, opined that last year’s State election was a ‘game-changer’. He said that Sarawak’s development landscape would change in the next couple of years.

“More projects will be implemented and take off from now. Therefore, please continue to support this government and its leadership. We will move forward,” he added. ― DayakDaily
