KANOWIT, Jan 14: The fifth day of the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) Flag Roadshow saw the entourage visiting the riverine towns and villages along the mighty Rejang River from Sibu.
The town of Kanowit was a hive of activity today as the entourage received a rousing traditional welcome as soon as they set foot here.
To mark the occasion, the VVIPs took part in a traditional ‘miring’ ceremony followed by a GPS flag handover to the coalition’s Kanowit Zone representative at the Kanowit Waterfront.
In his welcoming speech, Machan assemblyman Allan Siden Gramong pointed it out that GPS’ goal is to safeguard Sarawak’s rights.
“This unity of the coalition parties in GPS regardless of race and religion allows us to work under one force and political entity to make Sarawak a better place for all of us,” he said
He also questioned how Malayan-based parties and coalition like Pakatan Harapan (PH) can lead Sarawak when in Peninsular Malaysia they have a tendency for conflict conflict between people of different races and religion.
“We have to continue supporting Sarawak-based parties because only Sarawakian leaders alone are able know the people’s needs here,” he added.
He urged Sarawakians to protect their land, saying they do not need outsiders to come and administered them.
Meanwhile, Ngemah assemblyman Alexander Vincent reminded those present not to be fooled by PH’s sweet promises as until now they have yet to deliver what were stated in their GE14 manifesto with regards to Sarawak’s interests.
Like Allan, he urged all to support GPS for the betterment of Sarawak.
Also present were Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) Youth chief and Assistant Minister of Youth and Sports Datuk Snowdan Lawan and Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Youth chief Gerald Rentap Jabu. — DayakDaily
