BN Govt's projects in Seremban ensure people's wellbeing

SEREMBAN: The Barisan Nasional (BN) state government has implemented various development projects in Seremban to prove its commitment to ensure the wellbeing of the local residents.

Although the parliamentary seat for the state capital is held by the opposition, the BN-led state government still managed to implement the many development projects, causing Seremban to be deluged with economic and industrial investment and activities.

However, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan is still not satisfied with the achievement, saying that efforts must be intensified with extra focus to be given to the people's wellbeing.

The determination of the state government has also captured the attention of the Housing and Local Government Ministry when it finally decided to recognise Seremban as a city. For that, Mohamad said new plans must be formulated to ensure that the development in Seremban would also enable the residents to enjoy better infrastructure and facilities.

"We want to ensure that the people will be able to enjoy properly-connected and well-lighted roads, as well as comfortable public transportation and other public facilities," he said.

As such, Mohamad hoped that Seremban, which has 102,305 registered voters, could be wrestled back by the BN through its candidate Datuk Dr Yeow Chai Thiam in the May 5 polls despite the fact that the tussle for the parliamentary seat would see a five-corner fight between BN, DAP, Berjasa and two Independent candidates.

Meanwhile, through the state government's dynamic development plan, Seremban has also become one of the popular residential areas in the country, especially with the development of the 1Malaysia People's Housing Programme (PR1MA).

According to the plan, the government will build about 12,000 PR1MA houses in stages in here, Seremban 2 and Labu. It can be expected that the landscape of Seremban will change to a modern
city, not only with the construction of 5,000 PR1MA houses here, but also with construction of commercial complexes and the new Seremban Railway Station which costs about RM2 billion.

From the political landscape, it is actually difficult for any political parties to win the Seremban parliamentary seat as it has a 50-50 ratio of Malay and Chinese population. Seremban has six state constituencies, namely Lenggeng, Nilai, Lobak, Temiang, Sikamat and Ampangan.

Based on current public perception, BN is seen to be capable of wrestling back the Seremban parliamentary seat, as well as Sikamat and Ampangan state seats. - Bernama
