COMMENT | It has been more than six months since the Sarawak and federal governments have been at loggerheads over the issue of dilapidated schools.
More than 1,000 schools in Sarawak, mostly in rural areas, are in dire need of repairs. Despite being six months into the negotiation over the question of funding, there is still no light at the end of the tunnel.
The dilly-dallying between Petra Jaya and Putrajaya has got so bad that many concerned Sarawakians, myself included, have nothing good to say about both sides over the delay fiasco.
I understand that some rural schools have requested for repairs for more than a year and still, no help has been forthcoming...
