RM$ 1 Billion Goodies…?

Tony Thien Malaysiakini Correspondent for Sarawak/Sabah writes that Sarawak is the hardest hit by fuel price.( http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/84196)     We certainly do agree.It’s a fact……… !!! Sarawak’s land size is as big as Peninsular Malaysia and transportation costs will surely escalate and the people has started to feel it. Sarawakians are really peeved with having to pay 40 per cent more for petrol and are anticipating a spike in the price of goods and services. 

The battle of prices has begun in the small retail outlets with goods costing more and eateries/coffeshops increasing drinks as they see fit in towns and cities around Sarawak. Sarawak’s land size is so huge and it will not be easy to penalise the offenders by the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs. ( The shrug of the shoulders of the people says it all. Afterall, they had made their choice for the BN Government!!

On another note Tony speaks of PM coming to Sarawak to meet the State BN leaders. Will Sarawak get RM$ 1Billion goodies or more than Sabah? The MPs equation is Sarawak 30 Sabah 23 .What do you think?  In Sabah Prime minister announced a RM1 billion allocation from the  prime minister’s special allocation to be distributed according to development requirements. abdullah ahamad badawi pm anti inflation pc 090608 02

 Will the RM2 Billion cost-cutting measures made at the  Anti-Inflation Council today be used by the PM to inform the Sarawak BN that the Federal Government is unable to meet Sarawak’s demands and put it back till a more appropriate and conducive time. It’s up to Sarawak BN to put their demands across after all we delivered our package minus 1 seat….

PKR Saratok Division. 12th July 2008..After Lubok Antu!!

anwar interview and opposition parties and electionIn the last Parliamentary Elections Jelaing Mersat (BN) won the P205 Saratok against Mohd.Yahya Abdullah(PKR). Saratok constituency is a mixture of Malay 42% and Iban 51% while the Chinese and others make up 7%. Mohd secured 3764 votes which was very credible considering only 68.8% voters turned up.

PKR Lubok Antu Division(250km from state capital Kuching) headed by Nicolas Bawin was launched on the 25th of May 2008 by Anwar. Earlier Two divisions Mas Gading and Mambong have already been set up in Bidayuh areas.

Saturday 12th July 2008 PKR protem Division of Saratok (380km from state capital Kuching) will be holding a Gawai Closing Dinner”Ngeling Tikai” which will also coincide with the launching of the Division.

According to the organising Chairman John Antau Linggang an Iban Lawyer he said that hall will only be able to accomodate 120 tables. Arrangement and preparations are being made to invite Datuk Sri Anwar Ibrahim( PKR de facto leader) to officiate this function through the State PKR Chairman YB Dominique Ng. It is very likely that Anwar will take this oppurtunity to be with the people and as John puts it “the people are looking for change, Anwar is the Man and PKR is the party now.” Sounds familiar doesn’t it…”Current trend,Current brand” https://audie61.wordpress.com/2008/05/25/current-trendscurrent-brands/

A view of Saratok town

Saratok is a town, and the capital of the Saratok District (1,586.9 square kilometers) in Betong Division, Sarawak. Saratok District is rich with palm oil estates.The palm oil has brought big contribution to the development of Saratok area and also improves Saratok local people life style.

Saratok(P205) which encompasses the State seats of Krian(N34) and Kalaka( N33) has been earmarked by the party’s state liaison committee as next in the rest of the parliamentary constituencies. This will be PKRs 16th Division as PKR prepares for the next state elections due in two to three years.

Anwar is very pleased with the momentum Of the State PKR machinery and noted that that the Dayaks are now throwing their full support to PKR and this is an indication that PKR and Pakatan Rakyat will provide a strong challenge to wrestle some “Dayak majority” seats.

The momentum is gathering speed and onwards and he will ensure that come 12th of July 2008 “Saratoks wishes will be fulfilled and as what the people wants we deliver,”so says Dominique Ng and we are not leaving anybody behind. The Organising Chairman John and his committee will have their hands full and they will prepare a detailed programme for this Big Day. It’s your call now PKR Saratok…………
