KUCHING, Nov 8: Even hypothetically speaking, Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) will not join Pakatan Harapan (PH), said Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) Youth chief Gerald Rentap Jabu.

He said GPS was now in the best position to look after Sarawak’s affairs.

“’Mana boleh?’ (How can?) Who is going to look after Sarawak and look after your wife and children. We will stay as we are now,” he told a press conference at State Legislative Assembly (DUN) Complex ere today.

The Layar assemblyman reiterated that PH elected representatives from Sarawak were not even able to fight for Sarawak, including in Parliament.

“They can’t even open their mouths. Is silent a consent or otherwise?” he asked.

On separate issue, Rentap also challenged Krian assemblyman Ali Biju to name the areas where the state government has taken over Native Customary Rights (NCR) land under Section 6.

Ali had said in Parliament that he did not support the surveying of NCR land under Section 6 as he alleged that land surveyed under such section could be taken by the Sarawak government.

Meanwhile, state Public Account Committee (PAC) chairman Aidel Lariwoo revealed that 13 projects in Sarawak worth RM2.059 billion have been terminated by PH federal government.— DayakDaily
