BINTULU: Basic facilities and social infrastructure such as treated water supply, electricity supply and roads were among the issues discussed at a meeting of the Binyo, Selezu and Genaan Residents Association (PPBSG) held here on Saturday.

According to the newly appointed PPBSG chairman, Paul Ngipa Lambat, most areas in Binyo, Selezu and Genaan have yet to enjoy treated water supply.

“Instead, residents depend on river water to meet their daily needs,” he said.

Apart from treated water supply, the area has also not been equipped with electricity supply facilities or the Sarawak Rural Electricity Supply Scheme (Sares).

In this regard, Paul said his party would send a memorandum and hold a meeting with Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg to seek a solution.

At the meeting, the association will also send an application to both the federal and state governments to expedite the construction of paved roads in the area.
