GPS feels the heartbeat of Sarawakians

Date:

KUCHING: The Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) leadership foresees the aspirations of Sarawakians and is adapting to the current political sentiments.

A political secretary to the chief minister, Charles Chad Nissom said this in response to reports by Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) president Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh that there was a growing sentiment for change amongst the Dayaks especially in the longhouses.

“Change evolves and is not new to us and we are adapting to these changes both legislatively and on the ground across the state in all strata of society – be it in rural, from the elders to the youths.

“Infrastructures are picking up with people’s projects like bridges, roads, telecommunication towers facilities, utilities and RTP projects. These are projects that people want and we don’t deny them these developments but build them instead,” explained Chad.

He said that aid in various kinds, via Sarawakku Sayang Special Assistance (BKSS) from BKSS 1.0 to BKSS 7.0 totalling RM5.3 billion ranging from financial assistances, food baskets, rental discounts, exemptions, one-off business financial assistance and relaxation of government procurement policy were channelled during the pandemic.

“Sadly, the constituency of Bawang Assan is still far behind in many aspects of infrastructures development after more than 30 years represented by Wong.

“He (Wong) has failed his constituents though he was once a Second Finance Minister in the state,” Chad noted.

On Wong’s allegation that thousands of people thronged to longhouses he visited, Chad said he wondered how they could have flouted the movement control order (MCO) standard operating procedures (SOP).

“The pandemic is still on-going since March 2020 and gatherings are restricted, or else it is simply exaggeration because no party president will absorb the notion there was poor attendance.

“As usual when election is near, every party claims their own credit but GPS records are sustained, and it is not mere battle cry because we deliver.

“The people at large are aware that we are going for developed state by 2030 and will not jeopardise it by making choices that would lead to a change of a strong, functioning and formidable GPS state government,” Chad added.
