Baru’s criticism baseless, politically motivated

Date:

KUCHING: Baru Bian’s criticism of Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri’s appointment as Prime Minister shows his denial of Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) failure to return to lead the government, said Fazzrudin Abdul Rahman.

“Baru’s accusation of Ismail Sabri not able to do anything because he was under pressure from Bersatu, which held the balance of power during the previous rule, is completely baseless and politically motivated.

“Bersatu’s strong support for his appointment proves that the political parties in the Perikatan Nasional (PN) were willing to put aside politics and want efforts to address the Covid-19 pandemic to be a priority at this time,” stressed the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Youth deputy chief.

He added that all parties should give Ismail Sabri a chance as he obtained the mandate of the majority of Members of Parliament to prove his ability.

Fazzrudin also refuted Baru’s statement saying that Malaysia was now facing a big battle with the spread of the virus and fatalities caused by Covid-19, a sluggish medical system, increasing incidence of despair among citizens.

“The previous PN government has done its best. It’s seriousness in the immunisation programme showed a very positive development.

“In addition, more aid for the people was channeled during the PN government rule than under the PH. This proves that PH failed when given the opportunity to become the government,” he said.

He said Baru should look himself in the mirror as he had cancelled many development projects for Sarawak during his 19 months as Works Minister.

Among the major infrastructure in Sarawak that Baru cancelled included the Batang Lupar Bridge, Igan Bridge and Rambungan Bridge, which were now being continued by the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government.
