Don’t praise Najib just yet, says See

See was commenting on Abang Johari’s statement at Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) convention on Saturday, officiated by Najib, that the latter (Najib) had done a lot for Sarawak and that Sarawakians should be grateful for it and return the favour.

“The promise by Najib that the power and the rights of the people in Sarawak taken away ‘by design or inadvertently’ will be returned to Sarawak has turned stale.

“It has gone backward because the Prime Minister has a new promise that a high-level committee at the federal level would be established to negotiate with Sarawak on outstanding rights issues under the MA63.

“The ship is still in the dock, at Putrajaya,” exclaimed See, who is also state PKR vice-chairman yesterday.

Najib, in his speech at the PBB convention, gave his assurance that he is sincere when it comes to returning what rightly belongs to the people of Sarawak.

“I have promised, if we have by design or inadvertently, took the power and the rights of the people in Sarawak, I am willing to return them back to Sarawak. We don’t need to take the rights of other people. We are in one family. What is important is, we remain in the BN government and our country Malaysia,” Najib was quoted as saying.

In response to Abang Johari’s speech that Sarawak had during the last State Legislative Assembly sitting passed a government motion to form a high-level special taskforce to take over the state’s negotiation with the federal government, Najib said a high-level committee at the federal level would be established to negotiate with Sarawak on outstanding rights issues under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63).

See said Najib should not point fingers at others for the wrongs of the federal government taking away Sarawak’s rights over the last 55 years.

“Not only was he in the federal government for the most part of the 55 years, he (Najib) was already the prime minister when the Territorial Sea Act 2012 was passed to cause the biggest blow to Sarawak’s territorial integrity and sovereignty and he has until today not say a word about Sarawak’s request for repeal and/or amendment.”

See was referring to the government’s motion on Sarawak’s rights, which included the seeking of amendment to Territorial Sea Act 2012, which was unanimously passed by the Sarawak Legislative Assembly in 2015.

“The late Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem had made the representation to Putrajaya during his reign as the Chief Minister of Sarawak. The present CM should take up the responsibility to continue with the representation if he is sincere to follow through the legacy of the late Tok Nan. If we cannot safeguard our territorial integrity and sovereign rights to our territory, what is there for Sarawak?

“We must also be reminded that the late Tok Nan did not brag about the Prime Minister and the federal government during his time as the Chief Minister of Sarawak. In fact, he had put in place measures to ensure that the federal government and agencies will come to the negotiation table with Sarawak, with regards to their exploits in the State,” See pointed out.

See said the pledge that the federal government would chip in for the state’s Light Railway Transit (LRT) project if Sarawakians voted for BN with an ‘A+’ results “is laughable and an insult to the intelligence of Sarawakians”.

“Not only are all Malaysians suffering the wrath of the country’s unprecedented huge debts, Sarawakians are living the hardship of the federal government’s empty and unrealised promises.

“Sarawak is now suffering from the tremendous damages caused by flooding because the flood mitigation projects and plans were stalled due to the lack of funds. Further, the promised funding for rebuilding of dilapidated schools are not given to Sarawak but through federal ministries and agencies. Conceivably, only a fraction of the RM1 billion will be spent on the rebuilding of schools in Sarawak.”

With the general election just around the corner, See said the prime minister and the federal ministers will certainly make more and frequent visits to Sarawak to pledge for development projects and financial allocations.

“And there will be promises for autonomy and devolution of powers according to MA63. I do believe that Sarawakians have wised up to those pledges and promises which have tricked and eluded Sarawak for the last 55 years.”

In conclusion, See said Sarawakians should count the promises delivered, with regards Sarawak’s autonomous rights under the MA63 and devolution of power to Sarawak delivered by the federal government, before deciding to vote in the same federal government again.

  1. During the period when Sarawak BN was strongest and united and there was only one Opposition MP from DAP that the self serving idiots from Sarawak BN had surrendered our rights to federal government. Now these idiots and corrupted scumbags are asking Sarawakians to vote more Sarawak BN MPs to have more negotiation power with Najib and Umno Baru controlled Putrajaya? Fuk them.

  3. Absolutely right. This is just mere GE14 rhetoric by oarang malaya and make feel good speech for PBB delegates consumption!
    How many of the sky high promises have been fulfilled! Flood mitigation, rural school repairs and so on…
    The recent mega floods which inundated almost the whole if Sarawak is a testimony of promises not delivered on flood mitigations.
    Many rural schools were submerged for days and the promise of RM1 billion is now look like peanuts. But then the promised Rm1 billion hasnt see the light of day…
    So look forward to more promises…

  4. PH has offered better Terms to Sarawak. How about giving PH a chance ? We are the Fixed Deposit. So like any Fixed Deposit parked in a Bank, if the current Bank is not giving us the best terms, we can withdrew and put it with another Bank.

  6. See is right. There have been too many broken promises from the federal government. This is just an election ploy to win votes. Najib political career and even his personal freedom are on the line. He’s throwing everything he has to stay alive. Breaking promises is nothing to him. Abang Jo should not be too gullible and get carried away by Najib promises unless he can promise Sarawakians that whatever Najib promised, Abang Jo will deliver if Najib doesn’t keep his promise.
