All community development leaders must be prepared to go the extra mile to ensure that the people’s problems are tackled effectively, said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Haji Aman.

“As community leaders entrusted with the responsibility of serving the people they must reach out to the people to attend to their grievances and provide solutions,” he said in his speech during the swearing-in ceremony of 48 people’s development leaders (PKR) Tuesday at Wisma Innoprise.

Among those present were Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan, State Scretary Tan Sri Sukarti Wakiman, and other cabinet ministers.

“Newly appointed people’s development leaders (PKR) must visit the kampongs regularly to to serve the people better.

“If we do not visit them in the kampongs, we won’t be aware of the problems faced by the local community, and this will erode their trust in the Barisan Nasional (BN) government that made promises during the last general elections,” Musa said.

In his address, Musa said people’s development leaders (PKR) play an essential function as the eyes and ears of the government in their constituencies.“As community leaders you hold great responsibility to ensure that government’s policies, projects and programs are implemented effectively as planned to meet the people’s expectations,” he added.

Musa also advised local leaders to see their appointment as an opportunity to lead by example in fulfilling the people’s mandate by carrying out their duties to the best of their abilities.

He further reminded community leaders to embrace ICT technology which include online media such as facebook and twitter to reach out to an increasingly internet-savvy community.
