DAP’s Aziz hits back at SUPP Youth on politicking during Covid-19

Abdul Aziz Isa

KUCHING, May 22: DAP Batu Kitang branch chairman Abdul Aziz Isa has hit back at SUPP for ‘forgetting’ that it was Perikatan Nasional (PN) that was aggressively playing politics during this difficult time of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In a statement today, he alleged that when the people were suffering from this outbreak, PN was busy toppling the legitimate Pakatan Harapan (PH) state governments in Johor, Perak, Malacca and Kedah and now working on destabilising Sabah and Selangor state governments.

“When PN succeeded in their quest to rob the people’s mandate during this difficult time of the pandemic, why didn’t Milton Foo issue any statement to condemn those dirty works? Why did SUPP choose to remain silent and didn’t say anything?,” he asked.

Aziz was responding to Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Youth secretary-general Milton Foo who yesterday (May 21) urged Democratic Action Party (DAP) not to play politics following the party’s chairman statement lambasting Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) for supporting the PN coalition.

He further questioned if SUPP’s silence over the issue was due to Serian MP Datuk Richard Riot being appointed the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy to Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

“It only goes to show that SUPP is part of PN as they don’t dare to say a word as they have to toe the party line.

“Why is it so difficult for Milton Foo and SUPP to deny the statements from DAP regarding SUPP’s membership in PN rather than beating around the bush, if so then it’s time for SUPP to call it a day and cease to exist its political operation in Sarawak,” he said.

Aziz, who is also special assistant to Chong Chieng Jen, thus advised Foo and SUPP to focus more on how to improve people’s livelihood and reclaim Sarawak rights as enshrined in Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) now that SUPP holds power in Putrajaya under PN federal government.

“And since SUPP claims to be ‘independent’ from the PN, they should prove that SUPP will not ‘kowtow’ with them,” he said.—DayakDaily
