May 2006 SUPP losts a number of Urban seats to the DAP. George Chan the President of SUPP said,”I am sorry and I did not know what happened.” Fair enough, but that was the tidal wave which hit Sarawak then. Today in the local tabloids which was not covered by Malaysiakini portal the “war of words” which has simmered suddenly engulfed into a volcano eruption with SUPP Batu Lintang Youth criticising Sarawak DAP of claiming credit for the efforts of others.
Whats more they are urging DAP to take the necesarry disciplinary action against the Batu Lintang Assemblyman.? Moreover the youth wing has said that it was ‘unethical and politically immoral” for Voon Lee Shan (Adun N11) to claim credit for the effort of Deputy Works Minister Yong Khoon Seng who secured a development fund of RM1 million for the drainage system along Lorong Kapor 10,Lorong Kapor 11 and part of Jalan Temonggong Datuk Tan Meng Chong.
Nathasha made a phone call to the office of the Deputy Minister of Works and the closest aide said,” It is absolute Truth that Datuk made the requests to the government. He has kept his PROMISE to the people of his constituency and thats the Main Priority.” From what was gathered the personal aide also said it is baseless for Voon to portay himself as the person responsible for lobbying for the funds.” As much as the Sih was perplexed the personal aide was also puzzled as to why Voon said that he did apply for the funds through the authorities. Natasha was informed in a jest before the clarification over the telephone ended it must be the “Local Banks” which approved the projects and not the government.
Sih Hua Tong did not mince his words when he said,”We believe that the act of claiming credit is to cover up for not helping public to solve the problem.We believe that was why he claimed credit.We now want to ask him (Voon) what had he done to the people for the past 13 months.??”
Its the time to get DAP Voon it seems and SUPP Youth left no stones unturned. “No elected representative should simply claim credit and mislead the public and so on. The culture of claiming credit must be disallowed in our society,no matter in politics or any organisation. We are now in the process of retrieving all past records (on Voon’s action of claiming credit) because they have different records in different files. After we have gathered them we would like to share it with the public through the media.
According to PRS Batu Lintang Wanita Chief Cilla Balla the executive committee of PRS BL also condemns the actions of the DAP assemblyman. We campaigned for Datuk Yong during the last Parliamentary elections and we know that he always keeps his promises. Cilla said the deputy Minister will let the people judge him and he will not let his constituency down. On another matter she also said that the DAP should not be harping anymore on the land renewal premium issues as the state government had already decided on the matter. On top of it PRS Wanita Wing had already organised a “Land Premium Seminar” for its members and the public.
The “PUNCH LINE” for the upcoming state eelctions has already been lighted. DAP is not wasting time getting their act together to stop SUPP from wrestling back the seats they losts( Pending N10,Batu Lintang N11 and Kota Sentosa N12.) SUPP in the lasts state elections in May 2006 lost 2 Assistant Ministers to the DAP in Pending and Kota Sentosa and SUPP will mount a heavy artillery and calvary charge to wrestle back what they have losts. Will DAP let their guard DOWN….?
