The ‘randau’ (dialogue session) was organised by the Ministry of Utilities to brief the longhouse chiefs on various water and electricity supply projects within Suai Niah.

When asked by reporters about his readiness for the coming State election, Dr Rundi who is also the Minister for Utilities said that his party has always been prepared for the polls.

“For me, I am ready to defend the seat (Kemena). We’ll wait for the official announcement from the party chairman…for me, I have unfinished tasks for my constituents, because there is a lot more development I’ve planned for them,” he said, adding the final decision is up to Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg as the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) chairman.

During the ‘randau’, he told the village chiefs that under the 12th Malaysian Plan (2021-2025), many major water supply projects have been planned for Sarawak.

“These include the Sarawak Water Supply Master Plan and Water Grid, the extension of pipelines to rural folks,” Dr Rundi revealed.
