Senadin has grown rapidly from being a thick forest and peat soil area in the past, into a satellite city in the northern part of Miri, said Dato Sri Lee Kim Shin.
The Minister of Transport Sarawak, who has been Senadin assemblyman since 1996, said in the last 20 years, his area has developed into a new township housing the largest population in Miri.
“Today, Senadin has turned into a satellite city with an international university, an industrial training institute, colleges, and health facilities provided by the government, in addition to a private hospital,” he said.
Lee regarded this as proof of the political stability achieved by the state government over the past decades, which had ensured that rural areas like Senadin would become well-developed in less than 30 years.
Therefore, he said, the people of Sarawak must maintain the existing political stability to ensure that the state could continue to develop and progress according to the current ruling government’s strategic plan.
Lee said this in his speech for the Miri Neighbourhood Committee (KRT) Gerak Rahmah Segulai Sejalai Dinner 2023 event, hosted by the National Unity and Integration Department (JPNIN) at Naim Southlake Clubhouse here last Saturday.
Lee advised the public to not be influenced by elements that could affect the unity and harmony in the state.
“If the people in this state are a mess, then it would be difficult for us (state government) to achieve progress and develop this state, including Miri.”
Touching on the dinner event, Lee said he was proud that Senadin constituency now has 34 KRTs.
This, he said, proved that the rapid development of population played a major role in uniting the people of multiple races and religions in the constituency.
At the same function, Lee also presented food baskets to 23 underprivileged families.
Also present at the dinner was JPNIN Miri officer Wilfred Ugap and KRT Desa Pujut chairman Abang Iswandy.
