Orang Asal dip below poverty line, projects ‘failing’

KOTA  KINABALU: A lawyer who heads the PKR Kudat Division in the extreme north of Sabah has expressed alarm that more and more households in Banggi, Kudat and Pitas appear to have dipped below the poverty line despite the Sabah and Federal Government reportedly pumping billions into the areas. “The question is what happened to the billions spent in these areas. The onus is on the government to explain why poverty continues to plague the people.”
It would be better to hand out the estimated RM5 billion to RM10 billion directly to the affected households, said Rahimah Majid, so that the people could start various businesses on their own. “This would create business opportunities for others as well and jobs.”
