Baru Bian

KUCHING: PKR Sarawak chairman Baru Bian has told his party members to stop their internal bickering and move on to focus on their agenda of serving the people.

He revealed that during a closed-door meeting with PKR Sarawak leadership last Sunday night, PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim also echoed this view of his.

“We also agreed that our concern first and foremost is the economy of the country and meeting the needs on the ground,” Baru told reporters at a hotel here.

“I took it as a positive response from the central leadership. We have confidence in them to come together, move forward and move on.

“I don’t want to dwell on the past. The focus now is on bread and butter issues. We agreed on that.”

Baru, who is also Works Minister, pointed out that the meeting coordinated PKR’s preparation for the next state election.

“Basically, we will work together with other component parties of Pakatan Harapan to fulfill the needs of Sarawakians.

“It was also an opportunity for the party president and secretary-general to clarify on what have been decided at the national level.”

When pressed on whether the allocation of seats to Bersatu Sarawak came up in the meeting, Baru insisted that it must be discussed by the state-level Pakatan Harapan.

“If there are claims by Bersatu, we will have to see whether they are feasible. I don’t see any problem if the claims have merits,” he said.
