SIBU: It is puzzling how PKR state vice-chairman See Chee How can urge the people to vote P R MPs into parliament in order to safeguard the state’s socio-economic wellbeing.
A PBB supreme council member Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said yesterday the needs and wellbeing of Sarawakians had all along been well taken care of by BN, and there was no need for PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to show the way.
“I am unsure what See meant by asking people to vote PR MPs into parliament to safeguard and advance the politics and socio-economic wellbeing of the state.
“Are our political and socio-economic wellbeing not safely guarded and advanced now under BN? Do we need Anwar to do it for us? He (See) should look back into history. Anwar has no love for Sarawak,” Abdul Karim, who is also Asajaya assemblyman and Assistant Minister of Youth Development, told The Borneo Post.
He was reacting to See’s call for Sarawak voters to make a change to ensure a substantial number of PR MPs be voted into parliament this time, to safeguard and advance the political and socio-economic wellbeing of the state.
He opined that See and Baru Bian were just Anwar’s pawn to get to Putrajaya.
Anwar could have done wonders for Sarawak when he was then deputy prime minister and finance minister, “but did he do it?”
“All of Anwar’s promises and ‘carrots’ now are merely to win our support to realise his crazy dream to be prime minister! He is least concerned about the state and its people…he promises Sarawak greater autonomy, more oil royalty, highways, and et cetera and et cetera.
“But why didn’t he do it when he was in a position to do so before? Why was our Unimas delayed in completion?”
This, Abdul Karim went on to say, were just some examples for See to see how Anwar had less priority for Sarawak.
“And now he is talking about safeguarding and advancing Sarawak?”
