KUCHING, July 22: Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) youth says if the news of Parti Bersatu Sarawak (PSB) contesting in many areas is true, it proves that the party has plans to remove Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government.
“If the report is right, or if what is echoed by PSB president (Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh) is conclusive, then PSB has had plans to topple the existing government and has confirmed to be a political foe to the present GPS government.)
“This is a serious threat and we should reciprocate immediately by not only being defensive but set on our attack mode to enter their bases too,” said its youth chief Datuk Snowdan Lawan when commenting on PSB’s desire to contest in many seats in the next state election.
He said there was no truth in Wong’s claim of supporting Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.
“There is no identifiable truth in PSB president’s claim, pledging his support to our chief minister in their service to the people of Sarawak while on the ground they aim their guns at GPS.
“The claim is contradictory and rhetoric,” said Snowdan in a press statement today.
“In so far as PRS is concerned, PSB has encroached and had crossed the line even when they were still part of the state administration.”
“We cannot stand still on this and stay defensive expecting their onslaught. We cannot be lackadaisical and underestimate our enemy’s capability.”
“For now they have left us with one choice – retaliation, and so be it,” said Snowdan.
He said Malaysia being a democratic country, there was no stopping of PSB from contesting in any seats of their choice.
“But the verdict will be on the peoples to elect the government of their preference,” said Snowdan.
On Saturday, it was reported that Wong had at PSB Gawai Dayak Dinner at Sri Aman announced that PSB now had the freedom to contest in any of the state seats in the upcoming Sarawak election.
He said the party will field its candidates to contest in any seats it wished as PSB was no longer part of GPS, the ruling party coalition. — DayakDaily
