SPAOH, Feb 22: Malay villagers here are urged to monitor closely the implementation of development projects in their area.
In making the call, Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said this was to ensure that the appointed contractors implement them properly.
During a meeting with Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) leaders and Malay villagers at his Bukit Saban State Constituency Service Centre here today, Uggah advised them to report shoddy work to him, besides the Resident Office and the District Office.
“We cannot allow poor quality work. The end users will suffer. The government and the political leaders will be accused of not carrying out their responsibilities well.”
On the state government’s Musang King durian planting initiative, where Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg had allocated RM2.5 million for the Betong parliamentary constituency, Uggah said the people stood to benefit as the project was being implemented in stages.
Uggah later chaired a meeting to coordinate development projects earmarked for the Spaoh sub-district.
Also present were Betong Resident Friday Belik, a political secretary to the Chief Minister, Dr Richard Rapu, and heads of government departments. — DayakDaily
