Salleh wants the government to enhance transparency in the e-Kasih programme

KOTA KINABALU: Usukan assemblyman Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak, has proposed that the government takes steps to enhance transparency in the e-Kasih programme, including publicly showcasing the e-Kasih name list.


He said this measure would ensure that deserving citizens receive the necessary e-Kasih assistance.

Salleh emphasised the importance of regularly updating the e-Kasih list to guarantee that the services reach all eligible individuals.

“The updating process is crucial in enabling the government to assess the transparency and integrity of the village population,” he said.

Salleh said this when debating the government’s 2024 policy at the Sabah State Legislative Assembly Meeting, here today.

Salleh stressed the need to ensure that only those who genuinely require assistance are listed as e-Kasih recipients.

Additionally, he highlighted the importance of creating more individuals with middle incomes within the state.

According to Salleh, the middle-income group plays a vital role in stimulating the state’s economy.

He also suggested that the state government intensify the construction of affordable housing projects as well as provide the necessary resources for the success of the 1Community 1Product program.

The former Sabah chief minister emphasised that this initiative would contribute to the economic growth of the population, particularly in the long term.

Furthermore, Salleh expressed his hope that the Federal government would provide Sabah with autonomy in healthcare and education administration, mirroring the arrangement in the neighboring state of Sarawak.
