Only GPS understands local aspirations, says Harden


SRI AMAN: No other party understands the aspirations of the people of Sarawak besides Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), said Simanggang incumbent  Datuk Francis Harden Hollis.

He thus reminded the people not to go for the opposition during the coming state polls if they want to see the government’s planning in development to be implemented smoothly.

“Do not choose the opposition, choose GPS candidates who hold to the slogan of ‘Jaga Sarawak, Intu Sarawak’ (look after Sarawak),”he said during the 8th series of the AgriCOP programme organised by Sri Aman Division Agriculture Department at Rh Meria, Sengelau, Jalan Paip here recently.

He mentioned that as Sarawak would be holding its 12th state election soon, there were many people who offer themselves to serve and persuade the people to support them.

“But do not be easily deceived by the tricks of the opposition because they cannot bring development,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sri Aman deputy Resident Elvis Didit said politics and development must go hand in hand.

“Political stability is very much needed in managing development plans,” he said.

At the event, Harden presented minor rural project (MRP) cheques totaling RM9,000 to Rh Meria, Sengelau; Rh Japing, Nyakai Baroh; Rh Em@Jimmy Hamson, Sungai Pinggai Baru; and Rh Wilson Madon, Sg Pinggai Ili JKKK.
