Alfred Jabu rapped for poor rural growth centres

Joseph Tawie

Deputy Sarawak Chief Minister Alfred Jabu Anak Numpang, who is also the minister for rural development, should be disciplined and held responsible if it is true that six out of eight rural growth centres under his ministry have failed.”The authorities should examine why these centres are a failure, and if it is found out that they have failed, then the minister involved must take full responsibility,” Ba’Kelalan assemblyperson Baru Bian said.Baru,  who is Sarawak PKR chief, said this in reference to the latest series in the Auditor General’s Report 2013, which called on the Sarawak government to restudy the implementation plan for rural  growth centre (RGC) programmes in line with  the current development. 308 more words
