KUCHING, Nov 6: The hectic development initiatives of the State government under Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) should be allowed to proceed to ensure successful implementation that will benefit the people, said Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas.
Uggah said for this to happen, the people should give their support to the GPS government in the coming 12th state election.
“We want to focus on the socioeconomic sector where we want to assist, especially the rural folk, in generating greater income through modern farming practices including livestock rearing.
“Quality education is another focus. In this direction, improving rural telecommunication facilities is a must,” he said when meeting PBB Bukit Saban grassroots leaders in Spaoh, today.
Uggah, who is also Bukit Saban incumbent, pointed out that the GPS government had done a lot to improve the infrastructural facilities and amenities statewide.
“Sarawak is very fortunate to have an experienced chief minister who has his own ways of raising the development budget for the state,” he added.
On the coming state election, Uggah reminded the people that it would be different from previous ones due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, commenting on the Bukit Saban seat which he is expected to defend, Uggah said the voters there have always shown strong support for the government and he is optimistic that the grassroots leaders would be able to rise to the task.
Earlier on, during his arrival for a two-day visit in Spaoh, Uggah also checked on the progress of the implementation of the RM3.8 million Tanjung Sebekut drainage system rehabilitation and upgrading works that was implemented to assist farmers to cultivate their crops. — DayakDaily
