KUCHING: Grassroots leaders are urged to better understand the roles of government departments and agencies.

Corporate Affairs and Sarawak Public Communications Unit (Ukas) Assistant Minister Abdullah Saidol said this would enable local leaders to work with the agencies in resolving issues pertaining to their own villages.

He said this when officiating at the Community Engagement Programme at the Kampung Paloh community hall in Tanjung Manis on Wednesday.

“This programme is very important, especially for community leaders who are given responsibilities to manage the community in their respective areas.

“So, I hope that all of you, especially community leaders, in these two days to take the opportunity to understand the role of agencies so that it will be easier to deal with the issues of the villagers,” he said.

Meanwhile, he also urged the community not to sell or rent customary land that has been surveyed and instead, develop it themselves for agricultural activities.

Abdullah said the state government had allocated a large budget for the Agricultural Park (Agro Park) development programme.

During the ceremony, he also handed over completed rural transformation programme (RTP) projects which comprised the upgrading of four roads costing RM1.341 million.

Among them are the upgrading of the cement-to-tar road at Jalan Kedang (costing RM402,737), Kampung Kedang internal road (RM282,000), Kampung Paloh main road (RM457,000) and the repair of Kampung Paloh internal road (RM200,000).

Also present were Mukah Resident Hamdiah Bakir and Tanjung Manis district officer Udin Bujang.
