KUCHING, Dec 4: Democratic Action Party Socialist Youth (DAPSY) Kuching secretary Leslie Ting has urged Sarawakians to unite behind Pakatan Harapan in the coming state election and prevent BN’s return to power.
“Even though Pakatan has toppled the previous government in winning the 14th General Election (GE14), but it is not the end of the fight.
“The Sarawak government has not been changed with GPS (Gabungan Parti Sarawak) shadowing Barisan Nasional (BN), which could come back into Sarawak any time,” he claimed in a press statement today.
Ting, who is also special assistant to Bandar Kuching MP Kelvin Yii, alleged that GPS was just waiting for the right time to merge with component parties in the current BN coalition, Umno and Pas, to reclaim their position as the ruling power.
“Umno, Pas and MCA have played up sensitive issues like race and religion but GPS has never dared to comment and stayed loyal to their master without shame,” he said.
“We cannot hold back especially in our responsibility to fight against the return of the BN regime including GPS,” he added, noting that BN’s landslide victory in Tanjung Piai by-election had somewhat boosted the confidence of GPS.
GPS, he claimed, had refused to acknowledge the many efforts by the Pakatan-led government in correcting the wrongs created more than 50 years ago by the previous BN government.
“They (GPS) purposely picked on Pakatan government which has yet to complete their duties and responsibilities within their rule of less then two years,” he said.
He said that to ensure that Sarawak did not continue being poor and left behind, state and federal governments had to be in alignment to ensure parallel reformation can take place.
“I urge Sarawakians to have a strong belief and stay firm in the fight to win in coming state election. By only supporting Pakatan to rule Sarawak is the way to stop BN from returning to our state,” he concluded. —DayakDaily
