Lifestyle in Sarawak worth emulating, says PM Anwar


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians need to emulate the idyllic lifestyle in Sarawak, where people of diverse races, religions and cultures live in unity, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The Prime Minister shared that the state managed issues and differences with wisdom, kindness and love instead of bickering, anger and hatred, explaining that he was broaching the subject as there were certain people who recently seemed to revel in rehashing old issues and inflating small issues into serious problems.

The peace and political stability in Sarawak, with its leadership using their positions and power for the people, had enabled them to foster close ties with the Federal Government.

"These ties enable us to create extraordinary cooperation, where for the first time ever, the Federal Government can hand over responsibilities and full trust to the state government to begin certain development projects.

"This cooperation will allow the construction of infrastructure such as schools and clinics, especially in rural areas and the interior, to be done faster and at lower costs compared to usual methods,” he said on Facebook on Saturday (March 30).

Anwar had attended a Madani Buka Puasa event at the Al-Muttaqin Mosque in Kota Samarahan, Sarawak together with 2,000 locals.- Bernama
