KUCHING, March 12: Julau MP Larry Sng from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) today denied any involvement with Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) and said his presence at Sarawak Club on March 6 was pure coincidence.
He remarked that it would be nonsensical for him to leave the largest ruling party in the country to join a “small insignificant” party in Sarawak.
“Why would I want to leave a party in the government to join an opposition party and to join a small insignificant party like PSB, where we, PKR, are the largest ruling party in Malaysia?
“It doesn’t make sense,” he told DayakDaily when contacted today.
Sng, who is now in Parliament, explained that he was at the Sarawak Club that day for a meeting.
“I was there for a Pepper Marketing Board meeting. We had a lunch event there, and we had two tables.
“When I came out, I happened to see George Lo (PSB secretary-general) leaving and I did not see anyone else except him,” said Sng.
He said even on his way to Sarawak Club, he already received calls from the media asking him if he was going to join PSB.
“No such thing (joining PSB),” he said.
Since March 7, rumours were rife that Sng would be joining PSB. But Sng was not in the group photo taken that day.
On March 7, PSB finally showed its hand to expand by announcing the admission of several Dayak leaders into the party.
Among them were Sri Aman MP Datuk Masir Kujat, who quit Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) to join PSB. The rest of the Dayak leaders were former lawmakers. — DayakDaily
