JKKKs reminded on their role: Hajiji

Kota Kinabalu: JKKKs or Village Development and Security Committee members must play their role as transformation agents and representatives of the Government by always providing accurate information to the people.

“Among your main duties is to ensure the people will not be easily influenced by negative elements that are constantly trying to create discord and disrupt the stability of the State and nation.

“Equally important is to foster greater relations and unity among the multi-racial people apart from helping the Government to disseminate policies and developments, particularly those under the Hala Tuju Sabah Maju Jaya initiatives,” said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor.

Presenting appointment letters to JKKK chairmen and committee members for Sulaman and Pantai Dalit constituencies at the Dewan Seri Sulaman, Wednesday, he said they should continue implementing strategic planning, be diligent and adopt the camaraderie spirit in uplifting living standards and development in their respective areas.

“Those appointed should not only think about getting projects and refusing to go down to the ground or refuse to cooperate and sidelining those who are not supportive of the Government.

“The JKKK chairman and committee members must be sensitive to the problems in their areas and relay information on government assistance to the people,” he said.

The JKKK institution is an important machinery at the grassroots level and it is still relevant since its inception in 1962, he said.

Hajiji also called on all elected representatives to get grassroots leaders such as JKKKs involved in every planning and implementation in rural areas.

There are 11 bureaux in a JKKK organisation, among them Amenity Development; Security and Health; Financial Management; Economy and Entrepreneurship; Prosperity and Happiness; Education and Innovation; Welfare and Voluntarism; and Women and Family Affairs.
