BINTULU: The state government will place emphasis on rural development to narrow the gap between the rich and the poor in Sarawak.

Chief Minister Tan Sri Datuk Amar Adenan Satem said yesterday there was a need to narrow down the increasingly widening disparity.

Speaking at the annual Gawai-Kaamatan Celebration 2014 at Rh Meikle Ding, a 28-door modern Iban longhouse in Sungai Seputan, Sebauh about 55 kms from here, he said there must be an improvement in the life of the rural poor.

The celebration was jointly organised by the Dayak Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI), led by its president Datuk Joseph Salang and the Sabah Kadazanduzun Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI), under Bonipasius Bianis.

“That is why I have asked for an increase in oil royalty from the federal government.

“I have talked to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak about this and he seems quite receptive to it. I will pursue it further,” Adenan said, adding that he would be attending a briefing by the national oil and gas company, Petronas on its activities in the state tomorrow.

Meanwhile he reiterated his advice for the different communities in the state and Sabah to continue to zealously safeguard their existing peace and harmony.

“For Sarawak, we will continue to ban outside racists and religious bigots from coming in to destroy these for us,” he said.

Although Islam was the country’s official religion, he said, everyone was free to practise the religion of their choice.

At the function Adenan announced a government grant of RM900,000 to improve the Kemana-Jepak Road. — Bernama
