N29 “Its the System & KWA HONG, SAI CHUN”

The most obvious question before the nomination day in Batang Ai N29 is:-,”Can anyone change the mindset of the dayaks..?” ‘Its already in place the system says  a local Engkilili resident but votes in the N29 State constituency”

 He wants to remain anonymous and he went to school with the BN candidate Malcolm Mussen and there were only 16 of them and Malcolm was the only bumiputra in the class. 

What is the system as Natasha asked him? Its like no one goes against the ‘ Government ‘ and the Ibans who are under the government system will always vote for the BN dacing and no one else. Now with the youths factor and fence sitters PKR maybe stand a chance but its an uphill tasks.

He says the local chinese community who does business are as usual the ones who always ‘ KWA HONG SAI CHUN “. They must not be seen to favour any political parties and they only make up 297 of the voting strength. DAP and PKR members are making inroads he said but can the local chinese community just shun BN.

This is not like the URBAN AREAS in the Peninsula and will the Chinese here in Batang Ai just ‘ COMMIT SUICIDE ” Don’t think so but the opposition can try to convince. Natasha of audie61 was giving him all the issues which has been used by the Pakatan group somehow or rather it doesn’t convince him.

Just then a phone call was received from Engkilili and it was a confirmation that 3000 specially prepared food for election workers are to be handed to Lubok Antu. This was ordered by BN and they have distributed it accordingly to 4 contractors. “It’s like projects fairly distributed in this Parliamentary seat of Lubok Antu,he said”

Engkilili and Batang Ai make up this Parliamentary seat in Sarawak.One must realise that politics of development still counts and the convictions are still very much strong for BN. The dayaks are stillvery much in this SYSTEM and it will still take years to change their mindset.

He even said,Anwar can win the cheers from the crowd in his ceramah (campaign talk). However, here in Sarawak, winning cheers doesn’t mean that you are winning their votes.Though PKR Jawah will present a formidable opponent but it seems that BN campaign will withstand all and has a fair chances of defending the seat N29.

As it stands the ground zero is still not very noticeable eventhough SB has given PRS a headstart and  PKR is not lagging behind. The dayaks will still go for PRS-BN says the local confidently.

 Its the usual bombardment which holds the key to this rural constituency unlike the urban voters. This I have NOTHING TO HIDE. What has PKR got to counter when BN does in the last few days with their aerial bombs and swift forces penetrating the interiors…??

You will remember the song,” To know Malaysia,is to love Malaysia” so how will PKR make this Dayak Sentiment  to turn to votes for them. Sentiments can also change when the COLOURS OF $$$$$$ are shown in their faces.PLEASE dont be hypocritical and say that ‘I have my ” PRINCIPLES ” Come on,its all B.S.

Even a former PRS dayak SC  said to me when we met,”Dayaks can be bought” and this sentiment will not lasts. THe PBDS dayakism era is long gone and it has not really caught fire just yet. PKR represents not a local party and if there is another local based dayak party which is not PRS or SPDP or even SUPP maybe the challenge thrown to capture the dayaks imagination that the fire is still burning. If not,let’s just forget about dethroning the present BN government.  

So has Anwar or PKR done enough to change the dayaks mindset? BN Sarawak is so strong that even when 916 was proclaimed no dayak leader even dared to cross the line. So PKR making inroads,please says the former SC member.?    

All is not losts though for PKR as this comment from Mata Kuching in audie61 comments gives some HOPE..”All that the BN give just take…take and take but vote PKR. Show no mercy to all BN leaders who betrayed your trust elections after elections. It is time to change all Dayak leaders who chose to continue to betray our trust and use government projects as a commodity in exchange for our votes.

We say as always,” The truth hurts but many are shutting their ears to it.At least the Lubok Antu Chinese KWA HONG SAI CHUN “Do you think they believe in CHANGE..??What about the SYSTEM..?

    whether the dayaks can be bought or not is not the question …

    the question is can they be changed after 45 years of useless indoctrination by bn most notable by their own supposedly leaders out of greed for money, power and position within the useless bn aligned parties.

    That they lied, abuse and cheated them of their supports and benevolence.

    Audie & Natasa
    It depends on who you speak to (the Chinese) in Batang Ai and need to inform you that the piece of information provided by that Engkililian Chinese man is out of the story as he thinks todays Lubok Antu Chniese are as stupid and backward as he is

    Go to Lubok Antu and ask most Chinese voters, you find the facts from their faces and their harsh words. May be some families who benefited from BN government projects as contractors or ali-baba contractors would stretch their necks cheering for BN, while lots many others from around the town decided to vote out BN from N29. We are telling the truth, and the very truth as we say our words based on weeks and days of ground work done in the area

    If the Iban votes becomes equally divided, would you not think that the Chinese & Malay votes can decide the page in N29 history?

    Ground information also indicates, some SUPP Engkilili are encouraging Lubok Antu friends and relatives to vote against BN to teach Taib, Jabu, Masing a good big lesson

    Any body like to know which are BN darkest and blackest zones (ballot boxes), you are welcome.

    Joseph Entulu today announces another RM2 million for longhouses in Batang Ai.
    This is bribery. Joe Entulu disagrees, saying this an ongoing project.
    So Joe Entuku’s on going project is only announced during election.
    Morally, this act of betrayal is also an act of bribery.

    Unfortunately, it’s going to be money talk. And the BN knows this. The way they promised this projects and that projects costing millions is definitely going to have an effect on the voters. The tuai rumah are already in their pockets. The rest will get their angpows too. This is why the BN like to keep the Dayaks poor so that come election, they can buy their votes. And the Dayaks again will fall into their trap.

  5. Mata Kuching says:

    Dayak leaders like Joseph Entulu and Salang are recalcitrants and ungrateful guests to our humble longhouses. You visited our longhouses uninvited and we treated you as our guests all the same. Yet you come to our homes telling us that our ceilings and walls needed repair and/or renovations and insulted us with your offer of between RM300 to RM1,000 for each “bilik” or door.

    We the voters of Batang Ai will give BN 20 months to implement and complete all the projects you have announced and meanwhile we shall elect Jawah of PKR to be our “projects coordinator” for now till the next state election. He shall supervise and monitor on our behalf the construction of telecommunication towers, proposed and approved tar seal roads, internet connectivity, renovation works on all longhouses…so you BN Goons..you have 20 months to make good your promises.

    YB Jawah will report to us the development progress and if BN Goons think we are stupid you can continue to negate on your development promises.

    These PRS undergrade politicians are less than “Apek Bayat” going around like Con-Men, keep telling their lies till they get thrown out…

    We Iban and anak Batang Ai do not need Political “Apek Bayat” to tell us how developed we are, we know we are badly behind development

    What have Kepala Apek Bayat – Lutor James, menteri Salang, Entulu and YB Mong done for Batang Ai all these years besides in-fight and break own parties
