KUCHING, Sept 24: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) has questioned the political move of Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) described as being “very quiet” on several issues concerning Sarawak.
SUPP women’s chief Kho Teck Wan, who raised this concern, was responding to PSB president Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh’s recent announcement that the party will shake-up the state’s political landscape.
“It is clear that PSB’s stand is not to fight for Sarawak. They are here purely to split Sarawakians’ vote and to assist Pakatan Harapan (PH) in winning Sarawak during the next state election,” she opined in a statement.
Based on PSB political moves and decisions thus far, Kho said PBS chose to remain silent when the federal government cancelled the infrastructure development projects in the rural areas.
“How does PSB fight for Sarawakian’s well-being when it has not speak a word to fight for the oil and gas royalty, as well as Sarawak autonomy?
“How can they claim they are fighting for the social harmony of Sarawak when it does not oppose to controversial preacher Dr Zakir Naik’s hate speech?” she asked.
She added that PSB turned vocal when it comes to contesting in all seats for the coming state election.
“Wong loudly proclaimed his loyalty to Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, yet his party will be contesting against Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), a coalition lead by Abang Johari for the coming state election.
“No doubt, Malaysia is a democratic country and any party has the right to contest. However, I would like to remind Sarawakians that actions speak louder than words,” she continued.
She advised Sarawakians to be wary of peninsula-based parties she believed are coming to the state to “divide the people so these parties can rule Sarawak”. — DayakDaily
