KUCHING: In view of the recent declaration of state of emergency to curb Covid-19, Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Public Complaints Bureau (PCB) chief Wilfred Yap hopes that the government would always place the needs of the people as top priority.
He hoped that the Perikatan Nasional federal government will put people over politics and consider additional financial assistance to ease the hardship of the low-income (B40) and middle-income (M40) groups caused by the re-imposition of the movement control order (MCO) and conditional movement control order (CMCO).
“The government should prepare in advance and step up efforts to revive the economy with a clear and dynamic direction by accelerating economic recovery through allowing democracy to function and giving incentives to essential investments for job creation.
“This is because business confidence for investments is dependent on clarity and consistency of policies based on the rule of law,” said Yap, who is also SUPP Kota Sentosa Branch chairman.
On a separate matter, he said SUPP PCB continued to receive complaints and requests for assistance on various matters, particularly during this rainy season.
“One example of such request for assistance from residents of Kampung Sungai Tapang on a fallen tree blocking their access road,” he disclosed.
Yap said the matter was urgently communicated to the emergency response team of the Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) and the fallen tree was immediately cleared.
SUPP PCB is always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone facing problems or who have come across issues of public interest but are unsure of how to deal with them.
Anyone requiring assistance can always contact SUPP PCB’s at 016-7797688 or 082-246999 or directly visit the SUPP Head Office to request for assistance.
