KANGAR: The Sanglang state seat held by PAS since the 1999 general election can be returned to the Barisan Nasional (BN) if the people care about their future, said the member of parliament for Arau, Datuk Ismail Kasim.
He said people in the Sanglang state constituency which had more than 8,000 voters would certainly give their strong support to the BN if they were not influenced by the sweet promises made by the opposition.
Ismail, who is also the deputy head of the Arau Umno division said the BN must give as clear as possible an explanationto the Sanglang constituents on the noble efforts carried out by the government in the area all this while.
"They probably do not see the significant physical development but they certainly enjoy the various facilities provided by the government including in the agricultural sector and other infrastructural development including education," he told reporters after closing the mini carnival on health food organised by the Community Development Department (Kemas) in Sanglang, here today.
Ismail said members of Kemas were among the groups that conveyed information on the various government efforts to the local residents even though the area could be controlled by the opposition.
Sanglang and Simpang Empat are the two State constituencies controlled by PAS. They are located in the Arau Parliamentary constituency. -- BERNAMA
