NABAWAN: Villagers of Kg. Balantos Pagalungan are happy to receive a green light for the reconstruction of their longhouse which was destroyed in a fire disaster in October this year.
The new longhouse will be built soon through the allocation from the Ministry of Rural and Regional Development (KKLW).
Pensiangan UMNO Chief, Datuk Abdul Ghani Yassin, said the project will begin early 2016 as soon as the RM300,000 allocation from KKLW is received.

He was speaking to the media after the gotong royong activity with rural community held by his division’s Youth, Women, and Puteri, as well as assisted by Nawaban Community Welfare Service Department at Kg. Balantos on Wednesday.
Ghani said with the new longhouse, the fire victims consisting of 20 families will be able to have a comfortable life. –SayangSabah
