MIRI, Sept 10: The Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government will strive to ensure that people from both and urban areas benefit from its development projects.
Assistant Minister for Women, Family and Childhood Development, Rosey Yunus, believed it was crucial that people from all walks of life give their undivided support to the state government under Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg’s administration.
“Support our Sarawak-based political parties to ensure continuous development,” she said, adding that the state government has numerous development projects in the pipeline.
Rosey said this in her opening speech at the Siew Nam Temple’s 14th anniversary celebration in Sepupok, Niah, yesterday evening.
The Bekenu assemblywoman also called on the multiethnic community in Niah to maintain and preserve their unity.
She said strong unity among various races will ensure political and economic stability.
Rosey lauded the event, which was celebrated by the Chinese and other races.
“This shows that mutltiracial groups in Sarawak can live together in harmony. Political and economic stability allows the government to carry out its development agenda,” she said.
Sibuti MP Lukanisman Awang Sauni and organising chairman Penghulu Haw Ming Wai, who is also the local community leader, were present at the event that attracted a crowd of some 200 at Niah community hall.
