IGAN: Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg hopes that the people would give the ruling Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government a fresh mandate to enable it to continue implementing development projects.

He said this in response to a list given by Jemoreng assemblyman Datuk Dr Juanda Jaya during the earth-breaking ceremony of Batang Igan Brigde project here.

According to him, the list included development of Igan bazaar, recreation and sports facilities, a processing centre, agriculture projects and housing.

He added that he would discuss the matter with the Land Custody and Development Authority (LCDA).

“Give us the (fresh) mandate and all will be ‘beres’ (settled),” he said.

Abang Johari explained that the government target was to see Sarawak become a developed state by 2030.

According to him, besides infrastructure, the government was also emphasising on education and building talents to help spearhead the development process.
