Vote BN for sustainable developments

Sustainable developments are very important to the area and nation. Undeniably, sustainable development cannot be attained without a responsible government that can deliver to the people.

It is important to note that the Barisan Nasional government is the government that can deliver. It committed all-out efforts for the development of the nation and achieved remarkable results since independent.

Sustainable developments are of particular importance to the Chinese community in Kuala Terengganu. Undeniably, the future of Kuala Terengganu will be much brighter if the BN continues to get the mandate.

Ironically, the Chinese community in Kuala Terengganu had benefited from the Barisan Nasional government. Some RM2.7 million in cash was distributed to about 9,000 needy and elderly Chinese on the 5 January 2009 by BN government. The RM200 to RM300 handout per person is an annual event which usually happens either a week before or after Chinese New Year.

In addition, Menteri Besar Ahmad Said has pledged RM3.3 million for the construction of a hall for the Chinese community in Bukit Kecil, with the ground breaking ceremony slated for January 13.

Another RM110,000 was allocated to 40 Chinese religious organizations. The Terengganu state government further approved RM2.8 million for the upgrading the hall of SJK (C) Chung Hwa Wei Sin, Kuala Terengganu.

The school’s brass band will receive another RM200,000. In addition to the allocations from the state government, the state MCA has obtained federal allocation worth RM205,000 for two temples while Education Minister Hishamuddin Hussien on Jan 5 announced a RM2,926,000 allocation for 10 Chinese schools in the state.

The 583 Terengganu based Malay contractors were offered contracts valued at RM15.8 Million in infrastructure works in the Kuala Terengganu area.

The Chinese community knew what is best for the country and Kuala Terengganu beside the persistent effort to exaggerate other existing differences. They are grateful to the government.

The question remains: How far should they support the efforts of Barisan Nasional for the sustainable development of the area?
