Unity a hallmark of stability: Awang Tengah


KUCHING: Unity and mutual understanding is key to political stability.

And in this respect Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan said the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government is committed to taking care of every community’s well-being.

He said that the state is very inclusive and prioritises the needs of all races.

He was speaking at the Kuching Kedayan Association (PAANAK) dinner at Pullman Hotel on yesterday (August 13).

“Our responsibility is to help the community and help ensure the state moves forward.

“There are over 40 races in Sarawak and that is the reality, we also need to ensure development is taking place.

“We have to be united and with that unity, we must contribute to the overall stability of the state,” he said.

Separately, he also urged the Kedayan community not to forget its roots, customs, culture and language as it is part of who they are as a community.

“It is important for our children to be raised up with good values.

“Encourage good social values inherited from our ancestors.

“Even if most of us have moved and currently live in the city, let us not forget where we come from and where our roots were from”, he said.
