Zaini Hassan”Are you a P.U.P..??”

To dog lovers “PUP” would immediately draw their attention to the little cute and adorable younger dogs. In this context we use the word PUP not to describe Zaini Hassan as out of his league as he wrote in Utusan where he made a ” subtle call to Abdul Taib Mahmud today to step down in order to save Sarawak BN, telling him to heed the lesson the Terengganu BN learnt in 1999.”

When we mention “P.U.P” we are saying to which category of political masters you belong to. Seriously,for argumentative sake only 3 earthly masters can remove Taib Mahmud and they are categorised into PBB,UMNO and PEOPLE.(you too should know who the other person is….)

PBB (Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu) where Taib is the President he has received unanimously the full support and pledges from his party and that goes without saying Zaini Hassan”CM and BN Sarawak Chairman Taib had just announced he would be leading BN in the next state elections.”

PBB has through thick and thin steadfastly stayed together with Barisan National and there are no questions of its loyalty says an Emeritus Professor to audie61. SUPP,SNAP and the defunct PBDS has one time or another been out of BN. Today we have SUPP,PRS,SPDP which makes up BN4 and Zaini should know PBB will stick with one of its own and will not even think of abandoning Taib just before the state Elections. He is in his 29th Year and can BN buy experience Zaini Hassan he asked..??

Secondly,Zaini are you representating someone from UMNO or are you so afraid that BN will lose its fixed deposit to Peninsular Parties in PKR,DAP and PAS. Are you the mouthpiece of UMNO or has someone asked you to spin an EXOCET MISSILE article to remind Taib that if Terenggganu can fall so can Sarawak. You should be driving fear into the opposition parties instead you choose to use this an advantage to show to your political masters that your writing can affect the mindset of the warlords in UMNO. Or you are capitalising on the situation to  prove your worth.??

My friend zaini there is a traditional saying,”When chopsticks are binded together no outside force will be able to easily break them.” Is the fear of Sarawak CM Taib going down the same road like Terengganu? You wrote,”The fears became a reality when PAS toppled Wan Mokhtar’s government and took over Terengganu.

 Obviously,there has been one too many many calls for Taib to leave and it was heard clearly especially after the Sibu Parliamentarty by elections.

A close aide and a PBB Political secretary said to audie61,”we have learnt our lesson very well from Sibu and we will leave no stones unturned as we go into this upcoming war. People are free to make their own opinions but we in PBB have not wavered and will continue to be behind our Commander In Chief. If CM Taib is able and willing we will fight and we will win the mandate of the people. Its a collectively decision tell the Utusan editor..

We have covered the two initials P.U. and the third P Zaini is People. The people will know how to choose their leaders and of course there are dissatisfation amongst the people on some of the YBs in the 71 State Assembly. Taib as assemblyman for Balingian N51 is only one of the 71 other peoples representative.

The people of Sarawak will have the right to choose,to elect their own leader in their constituency and God willing will be brave enough to choose the right leaders for their own constituency. Only the people will have the right to remove the leader and Taib like everyone else is subject to the constituents of N51 Balingian if he so chooses to remain in that seat.  

The Opposition parties are already so happy that Taib is leading the charge and now the Utusan article is saying Taib should stay out of it and listen to the ground. Its very clear that some Hidden Hands are pushing for Taib to stay out of this elections as there are FEARS that he will be the downfall of BN Sarawak.

Should BN Sarawak be scared?

N1 to N71 if the present YBs have looked and serviced their constituencies there should not be any fears? If the YBs have not gone on the ground or hardly seen they should be worried. There are ground reports from the various agencies/sources and the candidates put up will not be chosen from like plucking fruits from the trees. The political  parties will recommend and the candidates will be scrutinised from all angles. BN and PR will not choose unwinnable candidates thats for sure.

Zaini asked” Will the same happen in Sarawak?” We are saying to Zaini,” Sarawakians Knows Bests” and many will agree with us as Taib is only one person in a hopeful basket of 71 others.   

Even the Annointed CM in Waiting would be pleased to be delivered a handsome mandate from the people.THATS THE BIGGER PICTURE.

    Ibans Do Get Raw Deal – Admits Borneo Post

    Tuesday, September 28th, 2010 GMT

    Hard life – what progress and development?

    Even the Borneo Post, Taib’s favourite propaganda sheet, has found itself unable to spin away the dire distress of the Iban population, which it alleges is so supportive of Taib Mahmud and BN.

    In an article last week, the paper loyally insisted that Iban communities have “expressed their strong support” for the elderly Chief Minister to remain in charge, with one local leader citing his “vast experience” as being “greatly needed”.

    The Iban paramount chief in Miri, Temenggong Wilson Atong Limping, was duly quoted making the required statement that ”only the BN government can continue to bring more development”. This is the message that Taib Mahmud likes to promote at every opportunity and it has been his mantra for his past 30 years in government.

    What progress and development?

    However, the Borneo Post then went on to detail the conditions that Taib has, with his ‘vast experience’, provided for the Ibans of the area after all those 30 years in charge. Far from experiencing progress, the paramount chief explains, many of the villages “are still in dire need of basic amenities”.

    Furthermore, the communities “are desperately in need of basic infrastructure like a tar-sealed road, piped water supply and electricity”. He also points out that telecommunications are totally inadequate and that people are still having to climb to the top of hills to make a phone call out!

    This is of course a region which Taib and his logging cronies stripped of timber long ago, in the name of this same ‘progress and development’. His promise then was that Ibans would be repaid for the loss of their forest by the provision of just such basic amenities. But that was decades ago.

    Progress and Development – One of Taib’s complexes in Canada

    Taib next made a second killing by acquiring their native customary rights lands and again ’developing’ them with oil palm. This he also did in the name of bringing ’progress and wealth’ for the local people. But while, Taib has certainly acquired riches beyond imagination, investing billions of ringgit abroad to build his own foreign property empire, the Ibans are still waiting for water and electricity.

    The Iban leader tried to be as polite about the situation as possible. “We appreciate greatly efforts by the goverment”, he insisted, listing some ‘minor rural projects’ carried out by authorities, for which he attempts to be suitably grateful.

    These projects included providing villagers with tanks to collect rain water. Thank you Taib for such progress and development after 30 years of exploiting our lands!

    Typical rural road in Sarawak

    But chief Atong also lists all the major things that have NOT been done. Schools and clinics are inadequate and the gravel roads are in need of major repair throughout the area. So much for progress and development.

    The assemblyman for the area, BN’s Dr Stephen Rundi, also weighs into the article. And he likewise, openly admits that the facilities in the area are horrendous! “The government is aware of their plights and their sufferings”, he acknowledges of his Iban constituents, yet he assures the Borneo Post that there are “concrete plans” to bring more development to them.

    More promises and ‘plans’

    More like it! – one of the Taib family homes in Sibu

    Surely, after 30 years of exploiting the Ibans’ home territories to raise vast sums of money from timber and palm oil, BN should be able to show more than just plans?

    But, In fact even those plans turn out not to be so ‘concrete’ after all. Rundi elaborates on his assurances by making clear there is actually a dire shortage of funds allocated for the well-being of his constituents and that they can’t expect it to go far.

    “The RM18million allocated for Kemana constituency under the NKRA, is barely enough but at least it could be used to implement the various minor projects which are scheduled for completion in 2012″ he admits! So no new money and forget the running water or electricity – let alone a decent road or two, or schools or hospitals.

    So where did the money go?

    If the Ibans, who are still being encouraged to live in hope by BN, want to see where the real development is taking place they should access some pictures of the Chief Minister’s foreign properties or the local houses occupied by himself and his family and friends along the coast. It is not hard to see where the money that should have been spent on ‘progress and development’ has actually disappeared to.

    What future? – Iban children have been forgotten by BN

    The Ibans need to think hard about how long they think it will take before BN and Mr Mahmud deliver on their ancient promises. One thing is certain, which is that the Chief Minister will not live another 30 years in order to fulfil them!

    On the other hand, a very quick way to obtain the money needed to help the populations in Miri and elsewhere would be to reclaim the amounts stolen by individuals linked to BN over the past 30 years and return them to the public purse. With such funds an honest administration could rapidly transform the lives of these impoverished people.

    The opposition parties should not pass up their opportunity to make this point at the forthcoming election.

    At least in this case p.u.p’s article in the Utusan
    may be correct in its assessment of Sarawak’s still dreaming,even though he is fully aware of his personal unpopularity.He may still likely believe that he is indispensable,because all those surrounding him are all ball lickers, and fearful of telling him the truth, knowing very well how vindictive
    Taib could be.
    It would not be too far fetched to say that Sarawak,can go Terengganu way,now with so much discontents and dissatisfaction to his iron-fisted rule,and nepotism reign in his day.Sarawakians cannot wait for another 30 years of broken promises and unjustified excuses to fully enjoy the fruit of independent,as hoped by our founding fathers and the present generation.

    The Chinese community will not be intimidated by Najib and Taib into further submissions and be subservient to their highly corrupted regime. Other races are surely taking the cue from the Chinese to reject UMNO and BN. 47 years with UMNO/BN is too long and it is time the rakyat place their power with Pakatan.

    It is heartening to see our Dayaks brothers and sisters in the rural speaking out for their rights and demanding for corrective actions and immediate developments and will not be buying BN excuses for lack of development and be intimidated into voting BN in exchange for developments.

    Taib and his stooges know that BN cannot fool the rural voters anymore even if they were to triple the inducements or election bribes. All the village chiefs who were given an all expenses paid holidays in Kuching recently were seen openly voicing their dissatisfaction with BN government and especially with Taib Mahmud when they mingled freely with others in the coffee shops.

    The time is near and BN led by Taib Mahmud will be staring at a possible defeat which was unthinkable even up to few years ago.

    Sarawak women4change. Vote Pakatan to save Sarawak and Malaysia !

    Taib should step down-Utusan Editor
    Posted by News today on September 29, 2010 at 13:30:08:

    A senior editor of an Umno-linked daily made a subtle call to Abdul Taib Mahmud today to step down in order to save Sarawak BN, telling him to heed the lesson the Terengganu BN learnt in 1999.

    That year, said Malay-language daily Utusan Malaysia’s senior editor Zaini Hassan, grumblings against the Terengganu menteri besar of 25 years – Wan Mokhtar Ahmad – had come to such an extent that BN was warned it would collapse if Wan Mokhtar led the coalition in the upcoming 10th general election.

    Despite the spectre being a source of nightmares for Wan Mokhtar and other Umno and BN figures, the warnings went unheeded.

    The fears became a reality when PAS toppled Wan Mokhtar’s government and took over Terengganu, with its president Abdul Hadi Awang at the helm.

    “Will the same happen in Sarawak?” Zaini asked.

    He pointed out that Taib had just announced he would be leading BN in the next state elections “although it has been almost 30 years since he first became chief minister”.

    Noting that Dr Mahathir Mohamad had stepped down after being premier for 22 years, Zaini said comparable pressure for MIC president S Samy Vellu had also reached a critical level.

    He also pointed out that if Taib’s years in the federal as well as the Sarawak cabinets were taken into consideration, Taib would have served for 47 years.

    It’s not only Sarawakians who want Taib (left) to step down, but “the ordinary people who sit atop as well as under the fence” in both East and West Malaysia, said Zaini.

    “In the situation of Sarawak, there are no BN leaders courageous enough to openly call for Taib to retire from politics. Taib is no ordinary person in terms of influence and power (and) has had almost 30 years to strengthen his position.

    But the ordinary people (of Sarawak) have seen a lot of changes of leadership in other states and at the federal level in the past three decades and they must be asking – when will the winds of change blow in their state?” Zaini asked further.

    “Should Taib step down? What justification is there for him to continue leading the largest state in Malaysia? Such a veteran leader abide by the logic and dynamics of current politics that point towards a new (politics).
    “As folks in the kampung put it, no one can hold up the sky (or, nobody lives forever). If such a folk saying is not understandable, the English would say: Nobody is indispensable.”
