SERIAN, Oct 29: Siburan, which was previously a sub-district has been elevated to a district.
According to Assistant Minister of Modernisation of Agriculture. Native Land and Regional Development Datuk Roland Sagah Wee Inn, the elevation was approved during yesterday’s cabinet meeting.
“Our dream and vision to turn Siburan into a full district is now becoming a reality, and soon we will have a district officer to speed up our development process.”
“This means that more development will come into the area for the people,” Sagah pointed out when officiating at a school uniforms vouchers presentation ceremony at Kpg Gayu, Padawan Community Hall today.
The event is organised by Yayasan Sarawak, who was represented by Mohamad Faisal Jaafar, representing the director.
Sagah, who is Tarat assemblyman said the people in the area really look forward to the idea for rapid development and economic progress.
Apart from Siburan, it is reliably learnt that Sebuyau and Gedong area are also elevated to a district, while Balai Ringin into a sub-district, and waiting to be gazetted.
Meanwhile, Sagah said the State government under Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) is mindful of her obligation to help the needy students.
This, he said can be seen through the huge allocation to Yayasan Sarawak for needy students to buy school uniforms and shoes, besides other assistance.
“Under the school uniforms programme, the State government is allocating RM4 million annually to Yayasan Sarawak, where each student will receive RM200,” Sagah stressed.
He added that 26,175 students across the State will benefit from the programme this year, and urged parents and students to visit Yayasan Sarawak website to know the various assistance, including scholarship that are being provided.
At the event, Sagah also presented his minor rural project (MRP) grant of RM135,000 to 15 organisations, including churches and suraus in the constituency.
Also present at the event were political Secretary to Chief Minister Dr Simon Sinang Bada and Resident Serian Tuah Suni, among others. — DayakDaily.
