“Sarawak PKR seeking public sympathy with election manifesto”

Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah

KUCHING, Aug 6: Sarawak PKR’s manifesto for the upcoming 12th State Election (PRN12) was made solely to garner the sympathy of local folks, opines PBB vice-president Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.

Slamming the 10 offers which were recently disclosed by Sarawak Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) information chief from the State Leadership Council (MPN) Abun Sui Anyi, Abdul Karim asserted what was mentioned has already been implemented by the state government.

“The offers made are mere promises and all I can say is that the local folks are accustomed to and familiar with what the opposition will say especially when the state election is coming soon.

“PKR seems to be running out of ideas on how to get the support from local folks and it is amusing for their candidates to offer things that have already been implemented by the state government for a very long time,” the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) leader highlighted in a statement, today.

Abdul Karim, who is also the Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports stressed that the state government is now fulfilling its promises to local folks whose lives were affected by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic which had badly affected many countries including Malaysia.

He pointed out that the local community now must familiarise themselves with new norms based on standard operating procedures (SOPs) that has been set to ensure the public’s safety.

“They (PKR) have made so many offers that we the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) state government have already fulfilled and implemented in the past even so right now where relief assistance that have been promised to our people is being delivered as our country was also badly affected by the spread of Covid-19 since March.

“I am confident the people of Sarawak will not be easily deceived by the offers made by Sarawak PKR which are redundant and announced in hasty manner,” Abdul Karim added.

He also reminded Sarawakians that Sarawak PKR might have forgotten that many of their promises made during the last General Election (GE) have not been fulfilled and some were even failed to be implemented even when PKR was in power as part of the federal government for two years. — DayakDaily
