KUCHING, May 28: Commentaries lacking sound arguments and factual accuracy, published with biased intentions on social media, are akin to poison pen letters that should be disregarded, stated Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Information Chief Dato Idris Buang.

Idris highlighted that Sarawak has emerged as a region of great pride and vision, contrasting sharply with those who engage in unscrupulous attacks and slander.


“A chameleon can’t change its nature, as a leopard can’t change its spots, so are those who prefer to use ‘hitting below the belt’ tactics to attack Sarawak when Sarawak refuses to play their dirty games but strives to find ways to develop and better itself.

“What Sarawak has been requesting is the return of its rights enshrined under the Malaysia Agreement 1963, nothing more and nothing less.

“Just because Sarawak was not aware of its rights formerly, it does not mean Sarawak should be taken for granted and continued to take subservient stance,” said Idris in a statement today.

He held that social media users should be responsible in what they are publishing, and it is just shameful to see write-ups that contained harmful intent to cause pernicious effects of destabilising the harmony in Sarawak particularly and Malaysia generally.

To Idris, who is also Muara Tuang lawmaker, Sarawakians are proud of their Premier Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Openg and his vision as well as his leadership.

“We are very fortunate to have a leader with such outstanding wit and wisdom in successfully steering and charting the way for Sarawak from the time he took over especially through the stormy period of Covid-19 pandemic until the present moment.

“Under his leadership, revenue for Sarawak has doubled tremendously from an annual stream of just RM4 to 6 billion to that of RM10 to 12 billion now,” he said.

“To those who are well-learned, well-informed and fair-minded, we stand to be corrected.

“For those who unfairly criticise Sarawak’s tenacious effort to advance without substantiation and proof, you may continue to maintain your survival by making derogatory and disparaging comments, we Sarawakians would like to move on and be guided by what is true and right,” said Idris. — DayakDaily
