Enhance delivery services, implementing bodies told

Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan

LAWAS: Implementing bodies such as government departments and agencies have been urged to enhance their delivery services in ensuring that projects can be completed according to schedule.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan said the implementing bodies were given the mandate to ensure the projects, big or small, run smoothly.

“Your role is very important because the community at grassroots level is in the dark about the projects.

“If the project is delayed, they will point fingers at the elected representatives and the government. Therefore, the appointed contractors must do their work well and follow the schedule.

“As for the implementing agencies, whatever programmes and policies that we have, we are the ones responsible to deliver this.”

He was speaking at a dinner with the chief minister at Banting Indoor Stadium here last Monday night.

Awang Tengah, who is also Bukit Sari assemblyman, called on community leaders to play their role in bridging the gap between the government and the community.

“We must take on our responsibility well. Fix whatever is lacking. Sometimes in social media, there are real news while some are fake (defamatory).

“So, we have to explain to the people about government policies and programmes. Any confusion, you must contact the district officers and discuss together.”

Awang Tengah also pointed out that Sarawak’s struggles could only be completed by supporting Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

“Only the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government can ensure that Sarawak’s rights are protected and preserved as well as the welfare of Sarawakians are taken care of.

“Just like the Covid-19 virus. For safety, we must take care of ourselves. To ensure that the state will remain strong and united, we must stand behind our Chief Minister.

“We don’t have to depend on other people as they only aim to toy and take advantage of us.”
