But was never brought to Parliament says DAP candidate Pan Borneo caused untold damage in Papar
“This is due to the imbalanced irrigation system during the highway construction. Funds are needed to rebuild the irrigation system (in the district),” Shim said. - Bernama pic for illustration only.
PAPAR: Sabah DAP Treasurer Henry Shim said there are issues plaguing the community which have been ignored, and will be addressed if he was elected.

“I am aware of the problems faced by Papar folks such as the Pan Borneo Highway that has caused flash floods in the district, destroying their household items as well as affecting the rivers.

“This is due to the imbalanced irrigation system during the highway construction. Funds are needed to rebuild the irrigation system (in the district),” he said.

Also present were DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang, incumbent Kota Kinabalu MP Chan Foong Hin, Kapayan Assemblywoman Jannie Lasimbang, Likas Assemblyman Tan Lee Fatt and Luyang Assemblyman Phoong Jin Zhe.

Aside from floods, the 38-year-old from Kg Takis said prolonged issues such as water and electricity supply in the district have affected the livelihoods of locals.

Shim said these problems can be addressed only through a government that is committed and is concerned for the people’s wellbeing as well as their right to live in comfort.

He said the government could be formed only through the people and their decision to choose a better administrative power especially at Federal level in which will be decided in the GE15.

“We should be aware that the GE15 is aimed at forming the Federal Government and not State. We do not want parties who embezzle the people’s money. We do not want parties that are untrustworthy. 

“We need PH to be the Federal Government. A government that is clean, efficient and has efforts to build a fair and just system for Malaysians regardless of race and religion,” he added.

He also said that differences between races in Malaysia should be eradicated to pave way for cultural and economic freedom which would dictate the nation’s prosperity.

“PH will offer Kembara Siswa in which graduates will be able to return to Sabah during festive season with considerable ticket pricing. B40 scholarships will also be introduced to help less fortunate families.

“With various policies, the PH government will try to ease and help youths in terms of job opportunities, venturing into entrepreneurship and housing access.

“Sabah will also have a fair allocation system for development that will benefit the people holistically,” he added.
