The party insist on thorough review of the MA63 and take back those rights, protections and safeguards that were originally ours as stated in the MA63. It is undisputed fact that Sabah and Sarawak and Federated Malaya were equal partners and not one ofRead More

unnamed (1)

为预防年杪水灾来袭,砂人联党巴都吉当支部在事发前发动,并获得多个支部支持的“未雨绸缪”慰灾扶贫活动,将于下月正式展开。 该项活动欢迎民众在指定时间及地点捐助他们的旧物品(如衣服和玩具)、白米、干粮或金钱等,以行动打造爱心和慈善社会。 人联党巴都吉当支部主席罗克强在新闻发布会上指出,活动性质虽不大,但更重要的是展现当中的精神,包括邀请该党其它支部也共同参与,以一个团队及人联党精神来推动这项活动。 他解释,“未雨绸缪”慰灾扶贫活动并非希望看到会有水灾发生,但若能事先做好准备,一旦真的不幸发生灾害,那他们就可以在第一时间给予灾黎某方面的援助。 “当然,不仅水灾,倘若一些贫困家庭有需要,我们也会给予援助。” 出席该项新闻发布会的古晋支部主席拿督杨莉也指出,虽然巴都吉当支部是个新支部,但所展现的团队精神并没有因为新旧或活动大小而有所区别。她说,作为一名资深领袖,她会大力给予巴都吉当支部支持,因为大家都是同属一个团队,都可以互相配合。 作为此项活动筹委会主席的吴得瑜则坦言,也许人们的“旧爱”,意指二手物品,将是其他有需之人的曙光,该项活动将是一种爱心平台,让公众人士可以将他们一点爱捐助出来。 有意捐助物资的民众,可在12月8日至10日上午10时至晚上10时;12月15日至17日上午10时至晚上10时;12月22日至24日上午10时至晚上10时,将捐献的物资送到富丽华购物商场、Vivacity购物广场及新欣购物广场。 此外,筹委会也在四哩半中公设立收集物资地点,开放时间是12月1日至23日,上午10时至中午12时及下午2时至4时。人联党巴都吉当服务中心(019-8199060)或十哩分部服务中心(082-611210)也会接收物资,民众送捐献物资点,请致电联络,确保有人值班。

24067952_10155116264363133_7593133139891990375_n

砂地方政府与房屋部部长拿督沈桂贤强调,古晋南市市政局作为全砂26个地方议会的“大哥”,任何所行所为将被其它地方议会跟随。 他在古晋南市市政局签署反贪宣誓书仪式上,指出,在全砂26个地方议会中,南市市政局官员是唯一获得一个月花红,切万不可视之为理所当然。 “你们作为地方议会的‘大哥’,拥有自己该扮演的角色,理应做好份内之事。如果你们只是‘找康头’,别的地方议会就会跟随,因为他们是看你们而做事。”他强调,每个南市官员都扮演要角,而在进行以民为先的服务工作上,每一件“小事”都是极为重要的,譬如设置智能交通灯,将为人民带来深远的影响力,包括缩短人民从工作地点返家的时间,增加与家人相聚的时光等。 他希望南市官员检视本身的服务工作,将带来如何的影响力,而非被人民视为仅仅是以提供服务为基准的地方议会,包括人民“眼见”的是交通灯没有操作、道路有洞、野草没有剪等而做出种种投诉,这对南市不公平。南市实际上可以超越更多。 他以新加坡为例,没有垃圾也没有杂草丛生,甚至没有狂犬病,这因为该国在减少粮食损失与浪费方面管理良好,反观本州就只是抓狗。 “狂犬病仍然存在。当然流浪犬是兽医局的管辖权限,我们只能抓狗,可是发出狗牌的也是我们。而狂犬病病源也非只是狗,还有猫等。因此,我们的责任并不只是抓狗,而是完善处理粮食损失与浪费、派发狗牌等服务。” 他也希望,南市官员可以自己的工作为傲,树立一个好榜样,竭尽所能,而非找借口。
