Rais blasts DAP
There is nothing for DAP to boast about its achievement in Penang. In fact, the Opposition is putting the state to disorder; the Malays are being sidelined while most projects went to cronies and friends within then party.
Minister of Information, Communication and Culture Rais Yatim brought up the issue in Kuching yesterday. Indeed, the DAP has nothing to proof, not just yet.
Its collaboration with PKR and PAS is also in question. The way Lim Guan Eng's administration treats the Penang Malays gets no objection from PKR. In fact, Anwar Ibrahim seems to be giving DAP his 'soft permitting' as not to harm the pact.
It was a good issue. Being a senior politician, Rais was quick to distinguish it and smacked the party leadership.
During nomination in Sibu last Wednesday, the DAP said its victory in Sibu Parliamentary election last May was a proof that Sarawakians were asking for changes in its leadership. Chua Jui Meng, the sour grape in MCA before joining PKR was also confident that Pakatan Rakyat would win most of Sibu's state constituents.
However, PR failed to answer some questions about Penang and Selangor. The Penang Malay issue, Guan Eng's 'close door' policy, the Selangor Mentri Besar's cronyism and their stand on Anwar of late, got them soaked.
PR manifesto, too was a re-hatch of its undelivered promises in Penang, Selangor and Kelantan. Nik Aziz, who once a respected ulama is fast losing his credibility after making inconstant statements, one after another, about PR and Anwar.
What is there to boast of when the migration of more than 400,000 Kelantanese to Kuala Lumpur and other states proofs PAS too fails to deliver what it promised.
However, the Federal Government never fail in giving financial assistance and grants to Kelantan, Penang and Selangor despite being the Opposition States. And these money too helps Nik Aziz, Guan Eng and Khalid administer their respective governments.
So, stop talking about achievement, PR! You should be thankful to the Federal Government, instead for making it possible for the 3 States to move on. It is BN money that keeps the system in tact, and pays your salaries and other things.
So, how do you expect to win Sarawak when you failed to answer questions about Penang and Selangor? You cant kid the Sarawakians!
