KUCHING, Oct 29: Democratic Action Party (DAP) should scrutinise its own leaders when levelling claims of racism against other parties, according to Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) Youth.
Rebutting DAP Sarawak chairman Chong Chien Jen’s claims that Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) plays racial politics, PDP Youth chief Robert Ayu claimed it was DAP leaders, including Chong and those in West Malaysia who have been making several racist remarks against Malaysians of different races and cultures.
“DAP leaders do not care about the sensitivities of Malaysians from various races and religions and that it may disrupt the peace, harmony and unity of the people. We do not need such a party or their leaders to step into Sarawak. The unity that our forefathers have cultivated in us is our most precious possession and we will strive our best to ensure that our grandchildren will continue to live in this harmony,” according to Robert in a statement today.
Robert, who is also a political secretary to Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg also cited purported examples of certain DAP leaders who allegedly said or issued racist statements. — DayakDaily
