SARATOK: Community leaders who are appointed by Barisan Nasional (BN) must reach out to constituents who did not vote for the coalition in the last parliamentary election as they too have a stake in the development of the state.
Making this call yesterday, Saratok MP Tan Sri William Mawan said everyone should work together to ensure all government development programmes and projects run smoothly particularly in areas where electricity and treated water supplies and tar sealed roads are still lacking.
Mawan who is also State senior minister and Social Development Minister said he would bring in relevant state and federal agencies together to review all development plans for Saratok.
“This (review) would ensure that future development in Saratok could be implemented systematically and cost-effectively,” he said when speaking a Ramah Tamah Aidilfitri at Sessang here recently.
The event was also a thanksgiving ceremony to mark BN’s victory in the last parliamentary polls in the constituency.
Also present at the event were Kampung Kabong Baru village headman Ganil Janif and local leaders of Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP).
At the function, Mawan also gave away prizes – cash and hampers – to winners of various competitions. -
