MIRI: Sarawakians have been urged to support the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) state government.
Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department (Corporate Affairs and Sarawak Government Communication Unit), Abdullah Saidol made the call at the handing over of a cheque for RM1 million to Long Pillah’s Village Development and Security Committee (JKKK) on Saturday (November 28).
He added the people should stand united and avoid quarrelling among themselves.
“If we quarrel among ourselves, it will not benefit anyone but may disturb government development plans,” he explained.
Abdullah also reminded the people not to be influenced by West Malaysian politics with its never-ending quarrels.
“That is one of the reasons why our Chief Minister Abang Jo with the support of all component parties of GPS decided to leave Barisan Nasional (BN) after the federal election back in 2018,” he said.
Abdullah pointed out that Telang Usan was blessed with abundant land which should be put into good and productive use by the rural folk.
He also advised the people of Long Pillah to go into modern farming as recommended by the Ministry of of Agriculture, Native Land and Regional Development.
“The purpose of holding this AgriCorp programme all over the state is to impart basic knowledge in modern farming with the hope it will excite and motivate those who want go into modern farming, especially the younger generations,” he explained.
Telang Usan assemblyman Dennis Ngau, was pleased to see the steady progress taking place at Long Pilah Longhouse and also in other longhouses or settlements in his constituency since 2011.
He called on the people to give their undivided support to GPS to ensure smooth implementation of development projects.
“Do not fooled by certain groups that that are trying to instigate people for their own political agendas,” he said.
