KUCHING (Bernama): It is the responsibility and duty of the Pakatan Harapan government, which will be celebrating its first anniversary soon, to be the torch bearers of hope, says Sarawak PKR chairman Baru Bian.

He said in spite of the seemingly slow implementation of new policies  promised in the Pakatan manifesto, he strongly believed there was hope as Pakatan was elected by the people to bring about change and transformation.

“We have hope. Overnight, the nation was given a new government with a new mandate and a new hope.

"For me, personally, it helps me to look at the situation we are having now in Malaysia (because) I am constantly mindful of the challenges we have after taking over from the previous government – the seemingly insurmountable debts we inherited; the economic slowdown and myriads other problems facing the nation,” Baru Bian, who is also Works Minister, said in his Easter message here on Saturday (April 20).

He also hoped that the people would pray for the Pakatan government, that they would have the wisdom and strength to overcome the nation's problems.

Christians in Sarawak and around the world observe Easter Sunday tomorrow, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans as described in the New Testament. – Bernama
