KUCHING, June 20: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Stakan branch has reminded the public not to be easily misled by the mind games played by Sarawak Democratic Action Party (DAP).
Its chairman Sim Kiang Chiok opined that the opposition party has over the years released statements that could have created anger and hatred towards the government of the day.
As a result, Sim believed their recent publicity asking the federal government to extend the operating hours of the Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) was just their way of seeking political mileage.
“Recently, two Sarawak DAP senior members were up to their old tricks yet again when they made cheap publicity in calling for an increase in the operational hours at the UTC.
“We Supp Stakan would like to remind the public and all Sarawak DAP supporters that it was former Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng from DAP that had shortened the operational hours at the UTC for cost saving.
“The former Pakatan Harapan (PH) government consisting of DAP had sold the idea that Malaysia was going to be in financial trouble and used that reason for their moves to shrink the civil service and undo all the services like the UTC operational hours and working days,” he said in a statement today.
Thus, Sim questioned why Sarawak DAP is reversing the decision made by their former finance minister by calling for the operating hours to be extended now.
He pointed out that it was the leader from DAP who had reduced the operating hours of UTC previously.
Thus, he believed leaders of Sarawak DAP are inconsistent in their statements while they did not dare to speak up when the operating hours of UTC was shortened by Lim previously.
Besides, Sim also questioned the timing of Sarawak DAP asking for the operating hours of UTC to be extended during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) period when the current Perikatan Nasional (PN) federal government is taking time to correct the mess caused by the PH government.
He believed that Sarawak DAP is trying to take credit for their so-called proactive actions.
Hence, he urged the public not to believe and trust whatever the opposition party is saying as they are merely looking for political gain. —DayakDaily
