(Petaling Jaya, Thursday): The newly-reappointed Sarawak Land Development Minister, Datuk Celestine Ujang said yesterday he was prepared to brief all DAP leaders, including myself, on the state land policy especially with regard to the commercial development of native customary rights land.
He said the briefing would let us know about the state government’s policy to improve the socio-economic welfare of the landowners.
I accept Celestine Ujang’s invitation for a special briefing on the commercial development of native customary rights land and I hope that such a briefing, which should preferably include visits to some of the land development projects in the state, could be arranged within a month.
DAP leaders are always open-minded with regard to issues affecting the people and what the government is doing to resolve them.
In fact, I am even prepared to visit the Bakun project site in Sarawak if the Ekran Bhd executive chairman Tan Sri Ting Pek Khiing is prepared to invite DAP MPs and Assemblymen for a special briefing and visit to the Bakun dam site.
