SADONG JAYA: Grass­roots leader should as­sist elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives in iden­ti­fy­ing peo­ple who need help to en­sure that no needy peo­ple in their ar­eas would be over­looked.

Ac­cord­ing to Min­is­ter in Prime Min­is­ter’s Depart­ment Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri, the co­op­er­a­tion be­tween grass­roots lead­ers in their ef­forts to iden­tify th­ese tar­get groups would make it easier for the gov­ern­ment to help them.

“It is im­por­tant that the peo­ple who re­ally need at­ten­tion in this area can be iden­ti­fied and as­sisted ac­cord­ingly,” she spoke at a ‘Leader Meets Peo­ple’ event at Masjid Darul Iman here on Thurs­day.

Nancy, who is also Batang Sadong MP, wanted ev­ery grass­roots leader to con­stantly up­date their list of tar­get groups.

She pointed out that such list could fa­cil­i­tate the dis­tri­bu­tion of aid to the tar­get pop­u­la­tion in a par­tic­u­lar area.

Also present was Sadong Jaya as­sem­bly­man Aidel Lari­woo.
