KUCHING: The Democratic Action Party (DAP) puts politics and the self-interests of the leaders first, ahead of the interests of the people.

According to Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) president Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian, DAP was known among the Chinese community for its deceptive tactics.

“The party revealed its true colours and characters by contesting under the Warisan logo in the recent Sabah State Election which they claimed to save Malaysia.

“They are putting politics and self-interest first; the people to them are secondary,” he said when addressing the SUPP special convention at the party’s headquarters on Sunday.

Dr Sim said GPS on the other hand has proven to be a coalition that puts the interest of Sarawak and its people first.

The Local Government and Housing Minister also lauded Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg’s stand in rejecting the party as a political partner in February this year.

“This was despite DAP Sarawak’s desperate statement saying that they would not contest in the upcoming Sarawak election if Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) supported Pakatan Harapan (PH) at the federal level,” he said.

Dr Sim said despite the harrowing 22 months under the PH federal administration, Sarawak had managed to get out of its comfort zone and recorded substantial economic growth.

“We are not only growing up, but we are growing up fast. Sarawak’s revenue has grown from RM6 billion in 2018 to RM10 billion in 2020, hopefully after 2023, we will get RM15 billion,” he said.
