Participation By Departments & Agencies Are Low In Sukau

Sukau Assemblyman Saddi Abdul Rahman want more government departments and agencies that can attend to people's problem to be involved in future Juara Rakyat program in Sukau. He said participation by government departments and agencies in the recent program held in Kg Sukau was not encouraging.

He said the Kinabatangan Umno organized the Juara Rakyat program, which is a monthly event with different themes, like in Kg Sukau to cater to people's needs."About 12 booths were set up and among them were Kinabatangan District Office, Kinabatangan Umno division, Kinabatangan Umno Youth, Wanita and Puteri Umno,people's Development Leader Unit for Sukau, Agriculture Department, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and Election Commission (SPR).

"These few government department departments and agencies are important but not really relevant to attend to the problems of Sukau people who face many-land issues."Unfortunately, there was no Land and Survey Department booth in the program where the people of Sukau could have met officers and inquire the status of their land applications and looked for answers another related land issues," Saddi said.

Other departments that should be in the event, he said,were the Fisheries Department and Malaysian Fisheries Development Board (LKIM) that could provide more information on essential schemes and assistance in elevating the living standard of coastal fishermen in Sukau.

Federal agencies like Felcra and Federal Agriculture Marketing Authority (FAMA) should also be included, he added, pointing out that these agencies are relevant to the people of Sukau as some are carrying out agricultural activities.
