When Lucien aired his views in Vox Populi http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/89053 on Expect more than 40 to defect it makes very interesting political reading. a quick check with the rural BN boys and the feedback on the ground especially in the Bidayuh hinterlands does not look good for BN. It seems according to a Parti Rakyat Sarawak divisional leader from Tebedu,” the sentiments on the ground is for a change.” The waves from the urban tsunami March 8th has had the after shock from Permatang Pauh August 26th to Sarawak 2011 he adds.
I have harped on this subject to BN that all is not well and development funds are one thing but the parties should be reaching the grassroots now. If we wait for changes its not changes but REPLACEMENT that will come. This is a political awakening and if PKR Sarawak Chief is coming out with such a statement,”Please for goodness sake,start moving your machineries and do something.”
Further prove to substantiate Pakatan’s claims comes from a report from our correspondent in Sabah Bugi Wijaya who filed this report,” Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi came and went to Sabah last night.His program was to attend a breaking of fast ceremony with BN leaders, senior government officers and servants.
While I was having my Kuching laksa in Gaya Street this morning, the headline of Sabah Daily Express shows a photo of an empty table of the breaking of fast ceremony. Guess whose it was reserved for? Yes, its for the thorn in PM’s flesh, SAPP.
A quick phone call confirmed that only Datuk Raymond Tan, deputy president of SAPP was present at the “break fast” with PM. A close aide said he has to be in attendence as he is the Deputy Chief Minister and a senior member of the state cabinet. Other notable absence were Datuk Frankie Chong, Deputy State Assembly Speaker, Puan Melanie Chia Chui Ket, Assistant Finance Minister and SAPP Youth Leader Au Kam Wah.
An interesting note was that this time the State Government sent out a blank invitation card ( Two component parties has confirmed this) for this “breaking of fast” program with PM. An office administration staff said, “we are suppose to fill it in ourselves”.
If this is true for all those that were invited, it does not give a good reflection on the overall administration of the state under the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Hj Aman. Imagine a simple invitation cannot be delivered what more the so-called multi-billion allocation for development of Sabah under the 9 Malaysia Plan and Sabah Development Corridor.
If we can’t do the small thing correctly or can we be trusted to do the big things properly? A staff of the City Hall who was sharing table with me exclaimed, “peduli lah itu politik. Pakatan pun tak jadi. Nasib itu mega belum ada orang kena lagi”. (forget about the politics. pakatan takeover not on. luckily no one has strike the mega (refering to the sports toto draw)).
Yes, looks like the fate of the people of Sabah is down to their luck. As the saying goes, You reap what you sow, You deserve who you elected. Meanwhile for SAPP, the guillotine will drop sooner than we can blink our eyes!
The ground is really moving and even an ex Executive Secretary of a BN political party who was seen coming out from a PKR divisional office “tsk tsk tsk”said that she might consider joining Pakatan as it is could be a NEW PLATFORM for the voices of the youths. We keep on asking ourselves in MALAYSIABOLEHLAND that its getting nearer (12 days before 916) .Will they be an earthquake and also an eruption of the volcano. Anwar will answer me by then you see audie61 how many are behind me in this press conference and we are on the way to be sworn in…BELIEVE ME NOW…..
