Over the past few days the Bidayuh community must have heard the words,”Gila-Gila” a thousand times. Even Malaysiakini correspondent Tony was attracted to the news and he came up with this report yesterday http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/89529 . I was on the phone with my father in law and told him that all will be well soon with the Bidayuh folks and community in Singai. Even the SPDP MP Tiki Lafe said in his statement,” The opposition is only trying to capitalise on the alleged termination of seven headmen in Bau-Lundu area because the state election is coming.”
At this mornings PKR Press conference attended by reporters from United Daily,Sin Chew,International Times and See Hua there was an outpouring of feelings and grievances by the affected parties. Even documents were handed out to substantiate proof.Nicholas Bawin (PKR State Deputy Chief) spoke in so many words that,”Peoples Feelings are hurt.” while See Chee How (PKR Legal Advisor in Sarawak cum Stampin Divisional Chairman) was quick to point out that legal actions will be taken.
Lawrence Gamjap ( Protem Chairman of Grogo Polling district PKR Mas Gading) said five things :- 1.Respect 2.Implication 3.Unhappiness 4.Retraction and 5.Apology
- Please respect Human’s Right of Voting
- Please do not implicate that all the Bidayuh in his area are against BN
- Most Unhappy that YB Nansian can come out with “Gila-Gila”
- We are Offended and Angry and we want a RETRACTION
- There should be an APOLOGY FROM HIM and published.
Opposition political parties or Independant Candidates can score heavily and win many votes from Statements made by YB Nansian. It is about the nature of this statement and it is “A Very Offending One.” I have done my part in apologising to the people concerned but they are seeking a “legal avenue” for this defamatory words and will pursue their case until the YB in question apologises.
In a separate personal interview with See Chee How he said this,” We are definately coming after this seat.” The excellent feedback from the ground and the YBs Questional Performance as an elected assemblyman is being brought out in the open.”
The ball is being played in the middle of the park at the moment and whoever scores with “left or right” foot will be sure that N2 Tasik Biru (14983 voters) will be yours come the State elections in 2011. To me,” it should have been rephrased and published as ,”MACAM MACAM ADA”. At least I will not get an earful from my father in law.
