KUCHING: Leaders of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) women are urged to pay serious attention to the federal government’s intention to topple the state government.
GPS Women’s chief, Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah, also called on GPS leaders and every Sarawakian to take appropriate protective measures.
She said this in response to Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s call for Sarawak to elect “a new government” that works closely with Putrajaya.
“It is crystal clear that they are all out to take over Sarawak from GPS — whatever it takes,” she told New Sarawak Tribune yesterday.
Fatimah observed that respect for Sarawak, which hosted last Monday’s Malaysia Day celebration, was thrown to the wind.
“The statements and speeches of the prime minister, federal ministers and deputy ministers all belittled the previous government.
“They glorify the present government and suggested that it is better to have the same government at the state and federal level,” she said.
Fatimah who is also Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development Minister lambasted Pakatan Harapan’s announcement of their divide and rule strategy.
“This is akin to ignoring the basic objective of celebrating the Malaysia Day,” she said.
