Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Youth chief Fadillah Yusuf has told the four BN component parties in Sarawak to buck up as the state prepares for an election in the coming months.

The need for the BN to not rest on its laurels so as to win the next state and general election is a wake-up call for Sarawak BN, said Fadillah, who is deputy minister of science, technology and innovation.

He said there was a clear directive by not only Prime Minister Najib Razak but also Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud to start working and not take things easy.

“At the end of the day, voters will judge us based on our service to the people. So, if you are complacent and takes things for granted, I won’t be surprised if BN candidates are defeated at the next polls,” Fadillah told reporters at the Sarawak Federal Secretary Innovation and Creativity Awards 2010 presentation in Kuching last night.

On Thursday, PBB information chief Adenan Satem said BN candidates could no longer afford to rest on their laurels because the people’s mindset had changed tremendously with the easy access to information.

Adenan, who is special advisor in the Chief Minister’s Department, had said that the people no longer voted along party lines and were also not as appreciative as before when given government assistance because they believed that it was the government’s job to look after them.

Cyber war campaign to be launched

In listening to the grouses of the people, Fadillah said, PBB Youth was already on the ground not only to do charitable or political work but also cover the social aspects of providing services to them.

He said the ongoing field programmes were being conducted at the branch level in all the 71 state constituencies, in keeping with the instruction from the party leadership.

A BN Youth seminar was also held recently, which was attended by all the BN component parties, comprising PBB, the Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP), Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) and the Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP), he said.

He said the PBB Youth media unit was also launching a cyber war campaign to disseminate information on issues affecting Sarawak.

In this way, issues could be effectively explained without having to resort to personal attacks, he said.


  1. You may sound remorseful but did you ever keep track of your records; clever in making pledges and promises on the many coming various developments to the inland communities of Fairland Sarawak. The big signboards displaying “Another Project by Barisan National” were obscured with tall overgrown grasses and shrubs. All these will not erase memories but our eyes bitterly overflow with tears each time we pass each the sign. “Cannot burn it lah! Recycled companies rejected it because very rusty lah”. It is uninflammable because of metal structure. How much the cost spent on this silly erections, unknown. Tell us now whether the new Simangggang General Hospital project has brooded in your BN basket not long enough? Two new hospitals are now already on the arousing applause card. Queue or Hijack? It looks very likely this New Simanggang GH got to be lied rotten there henceforth, presumably dead. Datuk Liow surely must have come with a hidden agenda. He must first explain to the Sri Aman communities on the actual progress work of the new Simanggang GH. Despite so huge sum of money was dumped into a remote peat swamp tract of land the Health Ministry must be accountable for seeing the completion of a new hospital. Extension and improvement of the existing old hospital would just enough to cater for the urban and suburban citizens. That fund is not supposed for such purpose. Whoever those professionals that came in contact with this fishy and reckless land acquisition must be held responsible? This time around demand them to show us the development fund chanelled first into Simanggang Bank Account – new Simanggang General Hospital before even acquainting their mecenaries. Vote for Change.
