SIBU: Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) is obliged to pursue the struggle to uplift the living standard of the rural community as a rural-based Dayak party.
Its Youth chief Datuk Snowdan Lawan said that this is by bringing and delivering more vigorous development to the rural areas in all aspects especially in the field of education, training, civil service, infrastructures, economics and entrepreneurship.
“We will collaborate with the relevant agencies and assist our people to utilise and optimise our fair share of business aids provided by the government.
“The welfare of the Dayaks in the rural areas where our stronghold lies continues to be taken care of and pursued by the party,” he said during the opening of PRS 5th Triennial Delegates Conferences (TDC) here on Saturday (Apr 23).
He added that the real beneficiaries to the party were its supporters in the rural areas.
“Therefore, they must be made to benefit from the winnings that the party attained in the last 12th state election,” he said.
He also stressed that PRS Youth would continue to be the voice to safeguard the party’s unity, integrity and solidarity from unfair and biased reporting and criticisms be it via the media or netizens alike.
“As the 15th general election (GE 15) will be much sooner than expected, and with the Undi 18 coming into effect, PRS Youth is on the alert mode and ready to mobilise our elections machinery.
“PRS Youth views positively the Undi 18 in GE15 by anticipating and luring our youths into mainstream politics and welcoming their active participation,” said Snowdan.
