KUCHING, March 18: Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) said Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) cannot have the best of both worlds.
Its deputy information chief, Christopher Gira, questioned PSB’s stand in state politics as what PSB had been doing was undermining the component parties of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) led by Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg but pledging allegiance to Abang Johari at the same time.
“After reading PSB’s statement by Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh (PSB president) in Engkilili, I am puzzled.
“PSB supports the government of YAB Abang Jo, but PSB has no qualms in ‘taking’ PRS MP (Sri Aman MP Dato Masir Kujat), disturbing SUPP (Sarawak United Peoples’ Party) and members of PDP (Progressive Democratic Party).
“Wong Soon Koh and group can’t have one foot on the ground and another in the water. They are testing our resolve, it seems,” said Christopher in a statement today.
Christopher, who is Tamin assemblyman, opined that GPS leaders must decide the placing of PSB’s feet either on dry land or in the water.
“It’s either they are in or out. Wong Soon Koh can’t have the best of both worlds.
“GPS government must decide once and for all what to do with PSB. GPS leaders have hinted to them many times whether they want to apply to join GPS or not.
“Instead of applying, they played recalcitrant politics and ‘kacau’ (disturb) GPS parties with immunity.”
PSB recently took in PRS vice-president Masir and former leaders as well as party leaders of PDP to strengthen itself.
During a recruitment drive in Engkilili yesterday, Wong was quoted as saying that PSB pledged its allegiance to Abang Johari, particularly in championing Sarawak’s rights and interests. — DayakDaily
