KUCHING, Oct 29: Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar believes it is obvious that the Pakatan Harapan-led federal government is setting up the Federal Village Community Management Council (MPKKP) to take over Sarawak.
The Santubong MP deemed the setting up of the MPKKP as “an act of intrusion” by the Pakatan government into the state’s internal affairs, by going deep into the very heart of the local community at every villages, longhouses and settlements.
“Sarawak has been known for its solidarity, harmony and tolerance, we intend to keep it that way.
“We have been in politics for years, longer than the existence of the Federation of Malaysia itself, and one thing we always strive to keep and preserve close to our chest is the racial harmony and religious tolerance.
“Our love for Sarawak is boundless, it transcends politics, power and greed for domination. We want to leave the legacy of peace and harmony as example for others to follow,” he said in a statement.
Wan Junaidi was commenting on Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng, who said in Miri on Sunday, that the federal government approved the setting up of MPKKP as part of Pakatan’s early preparation for the next state election.
Yesterday, the DAP secretary-general denied he had said that the MPKKP is Pakatan Harapan government’s “weapon” to capture Sarawak in the coming state election, as reported by several news outlet the day before.
In this regards, Wan Junaidi viewed that the Pakatan government and its MPKKP mechanism do not care about the long term impact of their action to Sarawak and its people.
Pakatan is keen to control Sarawak, being a rich state, he added.
“The exploitation and the indoctrination to manipulate the people’s mind through ‘bribery’, intimidation and solicitation are going to produce impact in politics and social order with an ultimate aim to break the communities and people’s solidarity apart,” he opined.
Wan Junaidi reminded Sarawakians to protect their rights as enshrined under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63).
Failing to do so, Sarawakians can kiss goodbye to the promises under MA63, the funding provisions of the Constitution and others due to Sarawak. All the devolution of authority that have been agreed upon may be aborted, especially those involving financial commitment, he said. — DayakDaily
