KUCHING: Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) information chief Datuk Idris Buang took an opposition leader to task for making inappropriate comments which defamed the state government.

Idris said the leader, Iswardy Morni believed to be from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), had used profanity in expressing his views.

“I want to respond to him, an activist on social media who is seen to instigate the people to hate the government.

“Talk is easy, but the people will judge you. If we see his videos, he has used inappropriate words which are disrespectful to others,” he said in a livestream yesterday (May 29).

Idris said there should be restraint in issuing comments and leaders should not create disarray so that order could be maintained.

“You are using disrespectful language – please use better words. What is wrong with speaking politely and being considerate? What is wrong with that? Or were you trained to do so by your party?” he asked.

To an allegation by the PKR member that the state government was ‘unintelligent’ in handling Covid-19, Idris said the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) was  getting the advices of health experts regularly.

He said the state government was also advised by Sarawak Covid-19 Advisory Group (Scovag) headed by renowned epidemiologist Professor Datuk Dr Andrew Kiyu Dawie Usop.

“If we look back, this Covid-19 started in 2019 when the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government did not tighten restrictions on the incoming tourists.

“And in 2020, we had to undergo a lockdown. The fact is that PH failed, and that also includes you. “So, don’t say that we (government leaders) are ‘unintelligent’. Instead, why don’t you use your platform to urge the people to observe and adhere to the Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs)?,” he said.

Looking forward to helping Sarawak
