Being positive: Liow (right) launching the gotong-royong programme in Medan Selera, Bentong.
BENTONG: Despite losing in three state constituencies in the May general election, Barisan Nasional will not give up on the people.
Bentong MP Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said he would continue to provide assistance to the people to the best of his abilities.
“Prior to the elections, I was fully backed by Barisan’s state assemblymen in Sabai, Ketari and Bilut while discharging my duties as an elected parliamentarian.
“Now, I am somewhat crippled without their help but would not be discouraged instead soldier on to win back the trust of the voters,” he said after launching a gotong-royong programme in Medan Selera, Kampung Baru here.
Liow, who is the MCA deputy president and Pahang MCA chief, said the people could still approach him directly to highlight pressing issues affecting them.
He said alternatively, they could bring up any bread and butter issues to the attention of village security and development committees, village chiefs, residents’ association, state agencies and non-governmental organisations.
“I will not shy away from my responsibilities and would work closely with all quarters in my constituency.
“We still have strong links with the Government and an effective structure to look after the people’s welfare and needs,” he stressed.
Liow also took a swipe at the Opposition assemblymen, asserting that they could not do much for the people and bring positive changes to their lives.
All the three seats were won by the DAP.
The other seat — Pelangai — was retained by Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob for a record six terms.
