Soon Koh: Ignore Pakatan’s ‘ceramah’

SIBU: The people here are urged not to be influenced by the ‘ceramah’ of the opposition, who have never fulfilled their promises.
Second Finance Minister Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh said the opposition was only clever in providing lip-service, making baseless accusations and rendering empty promises.
“They cannot afford to bring about development. As example, since the States of Penang and Selangor came under the leadership of the opposition, the economy of these States had fallen,” he said.
“According to audit report, the government of Selangor has been indebted with RM829.96 million from the Federal government. So we can see that the opposition parties of DAP, PKR and PAS under the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) are not qualified to administer our country,” he pointed out at the 1Malaysia Program Meet-the-People session at Rumah Juing Buntuok, Pasir Mas here recently.
The program was organised by the Sarawak Special Affairs’ Department (Jasa), Information department and Community Development Department (Kemas). Also present were representatives of Jasa Sibu/Mukah Division and Wong’s Personal Assistant, Johny Weiss Engkamat.
According to Wong, who is also the Minister of Environment and Public Health said the Barisan Nasional government has created many programs through Economy Transformation program, National Key Result Area (NKRA) and Regional Development such as SCORE in Sarawak to further boost the growth of economic activities, especially agro products, factories and industries so that the future generation would have employment opportunities and enjoy better standard of life.
He also described the BN government as a strong, fair and always having the people at heart.
“Under the Barisan Nasional our State is enjoying political stability, peace, harmony and prosperity. Various infrastructure have been planned and implemented in further upgrading the standard of life for all of us.
“In the Ninth Malaysia Plan and 10th Malaysia Plan, there are many development plans and infrastructure including agricultural subsidies which were duly allocated for the rural areas.
“This longhouse has been supplied with a water-pipe. So, I hope the residents in Pasir Mas will be patient. Your requests to improve the roads leading to kampungs and longhouses here will be implemented next year,” he said.
Wong, who is also Bawang Assan assemblyman said the government, through its agencies would continue to give quality and efficient service to cater to the needs of the local residents.
Because of that, he urged the residents of Rh Juing and surrounding longhouses to continue rallying behind the candidates from the BN in the impending State election, so that the BN government would be given a stronger mandate to ensure the stability of the nation’s economy.
