KUCHING, Sept 11: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Public Complaints Bureau (SUPP PCB) chief Wilfred Yap is appealing to Stampin Member of Parliament (MP) Chong Chieng Jen to assist in upgrading poor infrastructure at Stampin Resettlement Scheme to provide residents with a better living environment.

According to Yap in a press statement today, the residents had complained to him during a “turun padang” activity with SUPP Stampin sub-branch members recently about the poor condition of earth drains along the main road and the heavy traffic flow.

“The residents have once again requested for the widening of the main road and upgrading of the earth drains to concrete to alleviate the problems,” he disclosed.

He thus appealed to Chong, who is also the Kota Sentosa assemblyman and Deputy Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs, to assist the residents by bringing their long outstanding problems to the relevant federal government ministry or departments to be resolved.

“Help by applying and securing development funds from the federal government to upgrade the drainage system to prevent flooding and widen the main road to improve traffic flow caused by increasing usage due to the growing number of households in the area,” Yap added.

Meanwhile, SUPP PCB and SUPP Stampin sub-branch members will also continue to highlight the poor condition of the drains, roads and other infrastructure facilities in the resettlement to the relevant parties for the benefit of the community living there.

SUPP PCB is always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone facing problems or who come across problems of public interest but does not know how to deal with it, Yap added.

Anyone requiring assistance can always call SUPP PCB at 016-7797688 or 082-246999 or go directly to the SUPP Head Office to request for assistance. — DayakDaily
