KOTA SAMARAHAN: A leader of the people, for the people.
That’s exactly how the residents of Kampung Sindang Baru here described Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg when both of them visited the residents today (April 2).
Resident Aris Julaihi expressed ‘shock’ when he was informed that Muhyiddin and Abang Johari would visit his house.
“This is the first time I met him (Muhyiddin) in person, and I feel very proud and thankful to him for coming to my house.
“I see that both of our leaders are people-centric and very good, even the prime minister’s speech that I heard on television did not ‘touch’ on anyone but only focused on talking about the rakyat,” he said.
The former imam and bilal said this when met by reporters after receiving a visit from Muhyiddin and Abang Johari during the Ziarah Prihatin programme.
Meanwhile, Sajili Busrah, a former penghulu of Kampung Sindang Baru, said that it was his first time meeting both state and national leaders in the village.
“This proves that both our leaders truly care for the people, otherwise they will not come to meet the less fortunate our area.
“I am indeed grateful to see that they are willing to come here. I am so proud that the country’s top leader is sitting next to me,” he said.
During the visit, Muhyiddin presented donations to the families under the Ziarah Prihatin programme.
Among those present were Muhyiddin’s wife Puan Sri Noorainee Abdul Rahman, Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan, Minister of Welfare, Community, Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah, Kota Samarahan MP Rubiah Wang, Samarahan Division Resident Brahim Lumpu, and Sarawak Social Welfare Department director Noriah Ahmad.
