MALUDAM: Lingga assemblywoman Simoi Peri has fulfilled her promise to present two boats to Tanjung Riong villagers here on Tuesday.

According to her, the villagers had asked for them before the flood occurred.

“The villagers are happy with the boats as they will help them be better prepared for future floods. Do use them when needed and take good care of them,” she said.

Simoi encouraged the people in the area to continue to support the government so it could continue to bring development to rural areas.

“Do support to our chief minister … give him another five years of service so more development can be carried out in the state,” she said.

Also present were Batang Lupar Parliament Special Affairs Department (Jasa) officer Zaidel Ripin and Jasa DUN Lingga officer Sulaiman Amut.
