‘Help strengthen party’

Date:

BELADIN:  Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) women have been reminded to intensify their efforts to further strengthen the party at the grassroots level to ensure the victory of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) in the upcoming state election.

Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department (Law, State-Federal Relations and Project Monitoring) Datuk Sharifah Hasidah Sayeed Aman Ghazali, made the call during the Beting Maro ‘Sarawak Kita Empun (SKE)’ programme here on Monday.

“If the ruling government changes, we could lose our rights as stipulated in the Malaysia Agreement 1963,” she said.

Sharifah Hasidah, who is also PBB Women treasurer, added the responsibility of safeguarding the rights and interests of the people of Sarawak should be borne together.

“The matter should be known and understood by everyone, especially those at the grassroots level, so that they will continue to support the GPS leadership which has been fighting hard for our rights and interests over the years.

“At the same time, Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg is also focusing on the implementation of the State Sales Tax (SST) on petroleum products as well as the rights to enforce the Oil Mining Ordinance (OMO),” she added.  

The event was organised by the PBB Women Supreme Council in collaboration with the Beting Maro service centre.

Also present were PBB Women deputy chief, Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim, chairperson of the SKE programme, Rubiah Wang and Beting Maro assemblyman, Razaili Gapor.
