SPAOH: More and more rural people are aware of the falsity of the Pakatan Harapan government today for its failed promises.
On the other hand, the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) coalition continues to garner bigger ground support after the introduction of various initiatives that benefit the people.
Many are satisfied with GPS leadership pattern in fulfilling their promises to the people.
Any Bachat, 40, stated that the longhouse communities are aware of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) lies and thus, it is not surprising that parties like PKR, DAP and Bersatu are being rejected.
“For me, the people must fully support the people’s representatives from GPS.
“At Bukit Saban, we are fortunate enough to be represented by our assemblyman Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas who is very diligent in reaching out to the people and in monitoring the implementation of the projects,” she said when met yesterday.
Nahariah Spawi, 66, described GPS as “putting high emphasis on every layer of the society”.
“So, over time, the acceptance from the people has improved even though GPS is a new coalition.
“I hope GPS can take Sarawak to a better level than other states,” she said.
On the other hand, Lucy Ligong, 53, expressed her disappointment with the PH government for treating Sarawak like a stepchild with the cancellation of projects.
“Rural folk are putting their hopes in GPS to giving them a better living standard,” she said.
She praised the many initiatives introduced by the state government such as the Kenyalang Gold Card (KGC).
