GUA MUSANG, May 14 (Bernama) --The federal government has spent a total of RM1 million to build an additional hostel building at SMK Seri Wangi here, which can accommodate about 1,000 Orang Asli students.

Member of Parliament for Gua Musang, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah said the completion of the new hostel had reduced the density of Orang Asli students in the school.

"The hostel with 1,000 beds can accommodate 500 male and 500 female students at one time and will provide more comfort to them when studying.

"We pay attention to the needs of the Orang Asli community, just like that enjoyed by other students in the country," he told reporters at a ceremony to hand over the new hostel of SMK Seri Wangi here, Sunday.

Also present were Kelantan Federal Development Department director Datuk Makhtar Mustapha and Gua Musang District Education Office representative Hamzah Abdullah.

Tengku Razaleigh said with the completion of the new hostel, the parents of the Orang Asli do not have to worry about the safety of their children while studying.

Meanwhile, Makhtar said the government will build a ring road linking Gua Musang to Merapoh in Pahang at a cost of RM300 million by the end of this year.

It is a continuation of the highway linking Kota Baharu to Kuala Krai and is one of the largest projects undertaken by the federal government in Kelantan.

"The construction of the new road will also be able to reduce traffic congestion especially during the festive season," he added.
