KUCHING, Nov 15: Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr James Jemut Masing believed the amendment of the Sarawak Constitution Bill in the Sarawak Legislative Assembly (DUN) recently exposed the secret alliance of Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) and Democratic Action Party (DAP).
Masing who is also Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) president observed that both parties have been united to oppose the amendment of the Sarawak Constitution which was tabled by Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.
As a result, he opined that their cooperation was to garner support for the urban Chinese voters and thus neglecting the rural people especially the Dayaks in the rural areas.
“PSB’s willingness to work together with DAP showed one thing, (Datuk Seri) Wong Soon Koh the president of PSB did not honour his word of not willing to work with party outside of Sarawak.
“Such dishonesty does not augur well for PSB.
“And teaming up with DAP, a party which some Sarawakians feel made so many unfulfilled promises is even worse,” he said in a statement today.
At the same time, Masing who is also the Baleh assemblyman called on some Dayak leaders who joined PSB to leave the party as he felt that it is not too late for them to make a turnaround.
He believed that Wong was using the Dayak leaders to fulfil the latter’s personal interest by inviting them to join PSB.
He stressed that their intention was manifested when both PSB and DAP strongly opposed the amendment of the Sarawak Constitution Bill recently
Hence, Masing who is also Infrastructure and Ports Development Minister urged the Dayaks to open their eyes to the true colours of PSB and not be taken advantage of by their party leaders. —DayakDaily
