In respond to the article “Independent’s MRP handouts raise eyebrow” published in the Borneo Post today, and, in the interest of the people of Engkilili, there is nothing wrong receiving MRP from any state assemblyman. Regardless whether the area is won by the BN or independent or the opposition, the people should not be a victim of their politics.
The people are Sarawakian anyway, hence, why need to divide them through political differences? Just because they did not voted for the government of the day, then they should be punished? What the government of the day should do is to go back and prove the opposition wrong by not stopping all kinds of assistance and development. Itu baru adil!
I do not understand why certain leaders said it was not right, while YB Abdul Karim rejected suggestions to says its unhealthy. What is healthy then? Probably these leaders should walk their talk! The Dayak community in Miri needs a temporary shelter, so, bank-in to this cause, immediately. Miri is a BN area all these while with Dayaks living there.
Or, maybe its time that all Dayak areas should have a temporary shelter for the rural poor to stay while attending to their needs in the city or towns. Why must we wait for our Chinese brothers to think about it?
With this opportunity, I would like to thank the State governemnt for the MRP and to YB Dr. Johnicol for the RM65,000 of tax payers money that have been given back to the people.
How do we measure BN’s success in rural areas?
What is success? How do we measure success? With whom should we compare it to? Is our rural roads a symbol of BN’s success? Is the “tunggu peruntukkan” a short-cut answers to these questions? Why worry if PR have 30-40 people attending their function when BN have a strong support at these areas? Why can’t the people give them a try?
Its like buying a car.. if you don’t like Proton, can always switch to D-Max, anyway.. right? Win or lose, we shall see after that lahh..
The Chinese leaders are worry..
If you ask me.. the only way for me to see what is happening in the rural areas if via reliable blogs by bloggers from the rural areas.. If we are to wait for the government to give us a good briefing.. poorraahhhh! Then, we wait and should attend their ceramah after nomination day!
To the rural voters, their worries are on the prices of pepper, rubber and palm oil. To the Chinese politicians, all seat are unsafe (for now).
