It seems this sandiwara was well planned for SUPP with tycoon Ting Pek Kiing very much in the picture. Dr.Chan needed someone to boost his flagging image and to still ensure SUPP remains relevant in these testing times when PKR and DAP are making inroads into their territories. Who else fits the bill as a strong supporter of SUPP..Hmmm guess..? Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/94786 with its headlines,”Has SUPP come to its senses?’ in which the report focusses on SUPP’s efforts to resolve the infighting, reengineer and reinvent the party to reclaim losts seats in which at the last State elections lost seven state seats to the opposition.
Malaysiakini also reported that ,” It is learnt that over the past three months, party president Dr George Chan and his central executive committee (CEC) members had taken pains to resolve long standing problems. One consensus reached by the CEC was to retain the status quo of the top leadership.“We cannot afford to fight among ourselves. We must unite. If we are still divided, we will fall.”
The local tabloids today had headlines that Global Upline advisor Ting opening the school gate and handed over the padlock,chain and keys to SUPP President Dr.George Chan. Ting said he locked the school gate because the school management board was irresponsible and not because he had anything against Dr.Chan. As if this was not more uplifting of SUPPs credibility and ensure its political survival is enhanced Ting turned his attention to DAP.
Ting demands that DAP MP of Kuching Chong Chieng Jen withdraw his allegation that the developer had increased the consturuction cost of SJK Chung Hua No.2 from RM4 million to more than RM6 million. Ting even suggested that Chong come to the school with his quantity surveyor or contractor together with the press to estimate the cost.
Ting went further and said if he had overcharged SUPP for a single ringgit he will refund it to the school but if he is undercharging SUPP who will pay him? In his continuing attack Ting also had a go at the Chairman of the committee of Mangement of Kuching Ching Hua Primary school No,1-6 Dr.Chou Chii Ming. Both Dr.Chou and Chong were even ridiculed into not even giving a RM10 donation to the school.
Ting said if they were supporters of Chinese education then they should show their support. Ting was saddened as he was hurled with criticisms and allegations instead of a word of thanks. He said he has donated to many Chinese schools and he has donated RM1 million to this school. He even went on to say he has toiled day and night to ensure that SJK Chung Hua No.2 is completed on time for classes to commence in January.
SUPP President was happy that the school issue has been solved. But he was not to kind with his attack at DAP Chong and he said,”Chong should stop playing,”talking hero” and do something for the school instead.”He doesn’t give a single sen and what type of a hero is that.?”
Chan went on further with his stinging attack at DAP Chong when he said that Chong as MP and assemblyman as well as a member of the school board he should be more responsible than SUPP to help the people. All he did was to criticise and not come out to help raise funds for the school. These people behave as if they have no responsibilty while we work like COWS and still people criticise us.
Many political analysts has said that Tings timing was well planned to assist Dr. Chan as he faces his party members in the SUPP TDC. The bigger picture is to ensure that SUPP gets back its lost credibility as PKR is making inroads in the rural Dayak based areas. The present 35 PBB and 11 SUPP state constituencies holds the key to whether Sarawak still remains in the hands of BN when the elections are called.(SUPP remains a vital cog in the State BN survival) The 8 PRS and 8 SPDP seats are very fragile and the mathematicians are working out which of the 62 BN seats remains standing. PKR has 2 seats while DAP has 6 and 1 is an independant.
13th of December will be SUPPs and BN showcase says Beginda while PKR will be hiting the right chords on the 14th. In an sms he confirmed to audie61 that former State Assemblyman (Telang Usan) Kebing Wan will join PKR and hand over his membership form in the function at EastWood Valley Country Club and Resort which will be attended by Anwar Ibrahim.
It was also reported that on the 18th Anwar will be making a visit to Sri Aman and on the 19th in Kuching. Seems PKR is trying to make a statement or two and come good on its promises as mentioned at their Annual Congress. Its up to the BN component parties to be counter the PKR propaganda machine. If BN thinks that the threats are not real they will be very sorry as the people will take no PRISONERS as they are the MASTERS come the next elections.
