SIBU: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s latest visit to the state has boosted the feel good factor among Sarawakians, including fence sitters.
Several state BN leaders, when contacted, opined that the three-day visit last week had drawn more people towards the BN in view of the fast-approaching 13th general election.
State BN secretary-general and Assistant Minister of Public Utilities (Electricity and Telecommunications) Datuk Dr Stephen Rundi remarked: “The PM has stated clearly BN’s direction and the transformation programmes to ensure a better future for all Malaysians.”
He added that it was important for Malaysia to have a stable government, especially in terms of security and politics.
“PM had revealed his mission and vision for Malaysia, and I am sure this has touched the heart of all Sarawakian, especially the fence sitters.”
PBB supreme council member Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said enthusiasm was written all over the people’s faces everywhere Najib went.
“PM’s visit to Sarawak has definitely increased the mood and optimism of the people of Sarawak towards BN. The highly-charged spirit and the feel good feeling created would definitely bring more voters to BN, which includes the fence sitters,” noted Abdul Karim, who is Asajaya assemblyman and Assistant Minister of Youth Development.
He added that the people were beginning to realise that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Pakatan Rakyat were just a big empty tin that could only give empty promises and ‘cakap besar’ (talk big).
In actual fact, he said Pakatan leaders were merely a bunch of power-crazy desperados.
