MIRI: Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) was set up not solely for political reason or activities but as a vehicle to provide the best living environment for the rakyat as well as to accelerate infrastructure and economic development of the state.

Telang Usan assemblyman and PBB Telang Usan chief Dennis Ngau said the effort to develop and prosper the state is a constant struggle.

He urged members and non-members to look at the party as not only the backbone of Sarawak politics but also as a body that could bring positive changes to the state as proven since the early years of Sarawak’s independence til today.

“Since I took over the leadership of our branch in 2012, I have set a new way for us to run PBB Telang Usan as to be more creative and inclusive, especially to have focus on our younger generation,” said Dennis when officiating at the PBB Telang Usan friendly bowling tournament held at the Megalanes East Bowling Centre at Bintang Megamall here recently.

“Today, we could see how our party (PBB) plays its role in bringing members and non-members alike by hosting this event. I am grateful you come and support the activity,” he added.

Dennis pointed out that apart from the bowling tournament, PBB Telang Usan had also organised many other activities both in Miri and his constituency of Telang Usan. These included family day, gotong-royong (work party) to clean government facilities such as clinics, schools and churches.

“I can assure you our committee is planning to have more activities that involve Telang Usan community. I welcome any other suggestion for us to undertake with local communities.”

More than 100 PBB members from the main body, women and youth wings with their family members took part in the inaugural bowling tournament.

On another matter, Dennis reminded members of PBB Telang Usan to accept changes taking place in the state’s political landscape.

“The decision by all former Sarawak Barisan Nasional (BN) members namely PBB, SUPP,

PRS and PDP to leave BN and now form a new coalition Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) was the right move in the context of current political scenario and for Sarawakians to continue to lead and control the state’s future,” said Dennis.

He noted that there are some members especially those in longhouses who are still being sentimental about BN.

“We need to accept changes taking place and move on. We must place our trust in our Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg (PBB president) to steer us into moving forward as he is the one who knows best what the state and its rakyat need,” he added.
