BINTULU: People in Kemena constituency have been asked to give full support to Kemena assemblyman Datuk Seri Dr Stephen Rundi in the coming 12th state election.
Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing said only Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) is capable of bringing more development to the people and Rundi is part of GPS.
“GPS’ victory during the election will be a signal that Pakatan Harapan (PH) federal government comprising DAP, PKR, Pribumi, and Amanah are not welcome here,” he said during a “ngentak tiang” ceremony for Sunta Anak Timban new longhouse at Sungai Sebungan here.
Tiong, who is also Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) chief, also urged GPS members to go to the ground often to meet and engage with the people especially those in the rural areas.
“We need Sarawak-based parties to lead Sarawak because only Sarawakians know how to set its direction.
“And only GPS will defend the rights enshrined in the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63),” he said.
Tiong also announced an allocation of RM100,000 under the Bintulu Rural Transformation Project (RTP) to Rumah Suntan Imban’s village development and security committee (JKKK) for the construction of the new longhouse.
