SIBU: Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) can count on its BN coalition partners for support as they are always there to help, says a PBB supreme council member Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.
He said they were not there to bring down the party but to strengthen the coalition.
“BN component parties are always there to help and not to destroy you,” he said in response to a claim that several SUPP central committee (CC) members had moved a motion to review the party’s membership in the state BN.
The source was quoted as saying that the motion was moved because many members felt that SUPP was not respected as a state BN component party.
The party insider also claimed that it made no difference whether they were with BN or outside BN since they had not been fairly treated.
Abdul Karim, who is Asajaya assemblyman and Assistant Minister of Youth Development, said: “If there is any party that you need to blame for your misery…it is DAP and other opposition parties”.
He reckoned playing the ‘blame game’ would not bring the party anywhere nor would it influence the swing of Chinese voters to their side.
“As much as I won’t want to interfere in the internal problems of other BN components, saying that you are unfairly treated in BN as a reason to quit BN is just like blaming others for your misery. We sympathise with you for what is happening in SUPP and we hope that the party can recover and regain its past glory.”
