The arrival of PM Najib and CM Taib at this constituency of Rohani Karim, Deputy Minister for Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism is a morale-booster for this 5 term MP. She has been under intense attack and scrutiny from saboteurs who have been lobbying to replace her.
We wrote earlier:-PBB ,”ABU9 is for real https://audie61.wordpress.com/2012/03/02/pbb-abu9-is-for-real/ and today with the PM’s Visit and CM’s address this would be a welcome relief and knowing Rohani Karim she will go all out and leave nothing to chance as “complacency is not in her dictionary”
One should also look back at this article which was written just before CHAP GOH MEI 6th February 2012 and its now 1 Year plus and still there are those trying to outmanouver Rohani. The article reads as :- https://audie61.wordpress.com/2012/02/06/pbb-infighting-with-abu-9/
Rohani Karim has the ears and support when it comes from her President and Chief Minister of Sarawak Taib Mahmud. Her track record is exemplary. The only time she did suffered a scare was in 1999 where she was closely matched.
Going into GE13 P201 will be a safe seat for BN and rest assured PM and CM will know that they have a credible candidate in Rohani who always delivers what she promises.

Below are the extracted speech from bernama.
The people of Sarawak should give the highest mandate to the Barisan Nasional BN government under the leadership of Datuk Seri Najib Razak in the coming 13th general election Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud said that by doing so they were showing their appreciation and gratitude to the prime minister for coming up with various development programmes and assistance for their benefit.
He said this in his speech to welcome Najib when he arrived in Beladin a rural fishing and farming town about 60km from here for a brief visit today.
Abdul Taib said Najib’s transformation programmes were examples of his sterling leadership which benefitted the country and the people “His rural transformation programme is specifically to raise the living standard of the rural people “This can be seen through the building of more basic infrastructure like roads bringing in water and power supplies and giving the best education to the children ” he added
He said the people would only be spoiling a good opportunity for a better life if they allowed the opposition to take over the government in the coming general election The chief minister said for instance in Beladin a national opposition leader had teamed up with a foreign non-governmental organisation to instigate the people to reject oil palm cultivation on peat soil.
He said this would prevent the people from having income from their land as Beladin was located in a peat soil area
Earlier in her speech Batang Lupar Member of Parliament Datuk Rohani Abdul Karim who is also domestic trade co-operative and consumerism deputy minister said Najib’s visit had ushered in a new phase of development for the small rural town
She said the government had for instance implemented two water desalination treatment plants in the town and in Kampung Maro which cost RM1 5million each to solve their freshwater supply woes “The government has also allocated RM1 million to buy and distribute 500 units of Jerrycan a portable water filtering tank and RM500 000 under its Nadi Kasih programme to repair houses of the poor while about 1 600 people here would receive the BR1M 2 financial aid as well ” she added
Rohani expressed confidence the people would reciprocate by again returning Batang Lupar to the BN at the polls
