SRI AMAN (June 22): Works on all Rural Transformation Programme (RTP) projects that have been approved must be carried out without delay to prevent any backlog, said Datuk Francis Harden Hollis.

The Deputy Minister of Education, Innovation and Talent Development, who is Simanggang assemblyman, said it is vital that the implementing agencies expedite all current projects here as there are a number of upcoming projects scheduled for implementation before the end of this year.

“However, integrity in carrying out your responsibilities must be prioritised so that the effectiveness of the projects can be optimally enjoyed by the community.

“Do not negotiate for reductions that do not meet the specifications and scope of work that was agreed upon,” he said.

Harden said this during a working visit to the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID) and Sri Aman District Council, to check on the status of projects being carried out by the two implementing agencies.

For the record, both Sri Aman DID and the district council are implementing six RTP projects each, at a cost of RM1.4 million and RM1.5 million, respectively.

At the meeting were Sri Aman DID engineers Mazolizam Mohamad and Azizi Dahlan, and district council secretary Tay Guan Huat and engineering division head Fanny Jun Engang.
