KUCHING, Mar 2: Pakatan Harapan (PH) should apologize to the voters instead of blaming Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) as the process of changing government was started by Pakatan Harapan.

In response to PH Sarawak chairman Chong Chieng Jen’s statement on Mar 1, Sarawak United Peoples’ Party Stakan Chief Sim Kiang Chiok said Chong bore part of the responsibility for the failure of PH as DAP was unable to work with its PH partners especially Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who is PH chairman.

In the press statement, Chong accused GPS for being part of a coalition consisting of Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (Pas) and United Malays National Organisation.

Chong also accused of GPS betraying the people of Sarawak.

“The problem lied quarterly on his (Chong) shoulder for not being able to work with their partners and most importantly Mahathir,” said Sim.

He said unity is strength and when there is disunity, it is when the house (PH) broke.

According to Sim, all Sarawakians know that PH have not kept their promises especially the 20 per cent oil and gas royalties, return of 50 percent of tax collected, allocation of 30 percent of expenditure budget to Sarawak under annual budget and the repairs of rundown schools.

Sim also pointed out the rude accusation that Sarawak will bankrupt when the State has good rating from international agencies was one of the strange behaviour of DAP.

He said cancellation of infrastructure projects in a rural Sarawak, moving of the High Court registrar to Sabah and threatening to remove Sarawak immigration autonomy if they ruled Sarawak, all these showed that
PH can’t be trusted with their promises.

Sim said that SUPP would like to see the stability in the country after lending support to Muhyiddin.

“GPS is not in the coalition of Perikatan Nasional and would support as long as Sarawak rights are returned according to MA63 (the Malaysia Agreement 1963) including the mining rights over oil and gas.

“If Chong is worried about Perikatan Nasional federal government, he should have their 114 MPs to remove this govt in the next Parliamentary sitting instead of laying blame on others.

“Or is PH calling a bluff again when they claimed they have 114 MPs?” Sim questioned.— DayakDaily
