KUCHING: The ongoing transformation of the Tanjung Datu constituency will continue under the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) state government said Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Tanjung Datu Youth chief Azizul Annuar Adenan.

“Development projects have been coming in droves since my late father Pehin Sri Adenan Satem represented the constituency until now. All of this is not for the people in Kuala Lumpur, but for Sarawakians, especially Tanjung Datu folk.

“Back then, when we wanted to visit Kampung Siru Melayu, we had to go through rocky roads and a wooden bridge — there were even instances where a few cars have fallen over while using it.

“But now, the bridge has been upgraded into a concrete one following requests from the dwellers of the village and the concern of the state government which funded the project,” he said.

He said this when speaking at the Tanjung Datu Tautan Kasih programme at Kampung Siru Melayu, Lundu last Saturday (Oct 17).

Among the PBB sub-branches involved in the programme were Kampung Siru/Sg Kilong, Kampung Trusan Jaya, Tanah Hitam, Sebat Melayu dan Sebat Baru.

Meanwhile, at the same function, special tasks officer to the Chief Minister, Helmi Hazemi said folk of Tanjung Datu are fortunate to have received a lot of development in their area of late.

He said Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg has always been giving his attention to the needs and aspirations of the people in Tanjung Datu due to their undivided support as well as PBB members who have delivered results during elections.

Also present were PBB Tanjung Datu deputy branch chief Abu Seman Karim, vice chief Pemanca Benjamin Gersit Jais, women chief Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah and others.
