KUCHING, Nov 9: Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) publicity chief Dato Idris Buang urges Sarawakians not to fall prey to Democratic Action Party’s (DAP) ‘crying wolf’ and fearmongering, as well as to keep a rational mind when voting in the 15th General Election (GE15).
Idris made the remarks in a statement today in response to Sarawak DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen, who stated yesterday in a statement, “the best way to strengthen Sarawak is not to give absolute power to GPS (Gabungan Parti Sarawak).”
“Chong gave his statement irrespective of whether the people believe in DAP or Pakatan Harapan or not.
“His remark especially on not giving GPS a strong (support) is a kind of instigation that insults the intelligence of Sarawak voters.
“This is clearly insulting and a manifestation of DAP or PH’s selfish mentality,” he asserted.
He opined Chong’s statement also clearly shows that PH, in particular DAP, has no confidence in winning their parliamentary seats in Sarawak.
“The statement can be calculated as a remark of a hopeless desperado who does not trust their own selves,” he added.
Idris, who is also the GPS publicity and media relations chairman, pointed out that PH has been proven through their 22 months at the federal helm, to be a failed government.
“They had failed to fulfil their many promises. They have failed to serve Sarawak when given the chance and many development projects were either delayed or cancelled.
“They even insulted Sarawak as getting bankrupt within three years, a remark that had been proven wrong otherwise.
“Their arrogant and overconfident remarks insulting Sarawak are still there for them to swallow,” he stated.
Idris emphasised that GPS values each and every vote.
“As far as GPS is concerned, we respect every single vote. We appreciate the solid support from all Sarawakian voters and regard it as a signal of solidarity and oneness of purpose that GPS is the only capable and responsible party that could practically bring the much needed progress to the people of Sarawak.
“Therefore, we urge the Sarawak voters to keep their rational mind to spur GPS’s strength and confidence when participating in the federal government as GPS’ contribution in forming policies will surely suit the best interests of Sarawak and Malaysia.
“This will add vigour to an already excellent State government under the Premier of Sarawak Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg, and to boost Sarawak’s endeavour on the right trajectory for success,” he explained.
Idris also asserted that DAP and Chong’s lack of credibility to talk about fighting for Sarawak’s rights under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) has been shown.
“Sarawakians should now know better who DAP was. We humbly urge all Sarawak voters to go all out to vote GPS in order to give in return what is best for Sarawak from the federal government,” he added. — DayakDaily
