SPAOH: Villagers from four Malay villages here have been told to monitor closely the implementation of approved development projects in their respective areas. Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah said this was to ensure the appointed contractors implemented them according to the specifications spelt out.
He gave the advice at a meeting with Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) leaders and villagers at his Bukit Saban state constituency service centre here yesterday. Uggah said they could report any shoddy work to him or the Resident or District offices.
“We cannot allow any poor quality work.The end users will suffer. The government and the political leaders will be accused of not carrying out their responsibilities well,” he said.
On the state government’s Musang King planting initiative where Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg had allocated a fund of RM2.5 million for the Betong parliamentary constituency, Uggah said the project is being implemented in stages and they would be among the beneficiaries.
Later he also chaired a meeting to co-ordinate development projects earmarked for the Spaoh sub-district.
Also present were Betong Resident Friday Belik, a political secretary to the Chief Minister Dr Richard Rapu and senior representatives from the various government departments.
