KUCHING: Political secretary to the chief minister Charles Chad Nissom hit back at Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak Baru (PBDSB) president Bobby William for taking Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) president Tan Sri Datuk Amar Dr James Jemut Masing’s previous statement out of context.
Charles had requested Bobby to reread the sentences and phrases, as well as the whole context, as interpreting it in his own words is prejudice.
“It is either he chose not to read carefully, is ignorant or his understanding of English is questionable.
“In the first place, our president (Masing) did not even mention ‘forming Malaysia was the best option’ as the headline was ‘Malaysia marriage never smooth, but keeping the union stable was the best option’.
“People like Bobby love to spend time interpreting and rephrasing things to their own version.
“However, when it comes to helping people during the pandemic and delivering development, they are never interested,” he said.
Charles clarified that Masing was saying that to keep the union stable, it is important understand each other’s’ characteristics and to live in peace and harmony.
“PBDSB seems allergic to these phrases because it is contrary to their discipline, and thus criticised.
“The people must discard these types of opinions and entities because it sows discontent and animosity.
“Knowingly, PBDSB is targeting Dayak based parties such as PRS to lay their criticism, so it’s no surprise. It’s their trademark which no longer holds market value,” he added.
