GPS inclusive to all — even Opposition

Dr Abdul Rahman Junaidi

KUCHING: The development in Sarawak has spanned many facets of community lives since the formation of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), said Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Junaidi.

According to the Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department (Islamic Affairs & DBKU), there were many developments implemented by the Sarawak government that also covered the Opposition’s areas, particularly in terms of distributing assistance to the communities.

“Every aid that comes from the state government does not include favouritism because the assistance is distributed equally to those in need,” he said responding to a call by non-governmental organisation Rise of Social Efforts (ROSE) on adopting the policy of allocating development funds for Opposition state lawmakers on Friday (Sept 17).

When asked about the recent bipartisan memorandum of understanding (MOU) inked at the federal level between the government and Opposition parties, Abdul Rahman said it was part of the effort to lift Malaysia out of its political turmoil.
