Todays popular Sarawak english tabloids unusually covered more of the opposition and with it there were more speculations and gossips. Surely,one would question what are they up to.? It was all credible news today and it will really open avenues for more tastier political reports as the state will be facing the byelections in N29 Batang Ai.
Amongst the headlines were:-
- Opposition may face tough time in picking Batang Ai candidate
- BN not afraid of the opposition in Batang Ai,says Noroden
- Sri Aman will reject PKR:Jabu
- Stay out of Sarawak,Anwar told
- PBB still the people’s choice:Bukit kota rep
- Misconduct can mar country’s image,politicians warn
- Politicians not being impartial:Chong
It is no wonder then that Anwar immediatedly as he has been well informed that in his message to his party chiefs as both these Malaysiakini reports which interestinglly he mentioned ,” But this is not only Sarawak’s issue, but a national issue,” he said, promising that land problems will feature prominently in the coming Batang Ai campaign.
One of the features which has really started the basis of this article was the one which featured Jabu. An ex PBDS Supreme Council member who now is a PKR member said,”Please asks Jabu to check whether there are two brothers in both BN-PBB and Pakatan-PKR . How can he just simply make such a statement? Isn’t he just slapping his own face..?
Audie 61 made a phone call to the Leon Jimmy (protem Chairman for DAP Sri Aman) and ex PRS youth chief aligned to YB Larry Sng who immediatedly said,” Thank you Jabu for acknowledging our presence.”Do I need to say more..? ”
This is what appeared in todays tabloids,”DCM Jabu said yesterday that Parti Keadilan Rakyat(PKR) will not be welcomed by the people in Sri Aman.”How could they be welcomed when the leader of PKR Sri Aman is not even in the same wavelength with his family members.”
These two,who are family members,do not believe in each other yet they believe that they are fighting for the people’s right.I can’t see how they are fighting for the people’s right.I can’t see how they can command the support of others when they are not supporting each other.
The ex MP Jimmy drew more criticisms from Jabu when he was said,”Instead of working for the people improve their lot the former MPbrought PKR here to instigate constituents.He brought PKR here to instigate people to fight against and defame BN which he once served.”
Leon must be smiling as he had an ally in Anwar who not only took the words literally out of his mouth. In Anwars speech covered by Malaysiakini portal where he spoke to party’s parliamentarians, state assemblypersons and division leaders from throughout the country he mentioned,”Ketuanan Rakyat”
“The message of Ketuanan Rakyat is our message to the people. It should inspire them and strengthen their belief in a brighter future.“By our example they should be compelled to be active in their communities, to register to vote, to become members of our party and to motivate their family and friends to join Keadilan as well.”
So DAP Leon must also thanked Anwar for the these statement. One wonders the cooperation between DAP and Keadilan would be further strengthen with what Jabu has said.
We say as always,” There will be more political skirmishes in Sarawak as the by elections and the battle of Batang Ai intensifies.
