SARIKEI: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) Flag Rally at the civic centre here was slightly different because elected representatives delivered their speeches in various languages such as Iban, Mandarin, Melanau and Bahasa Melayu.

Seven elected representatives were present to welcome the convoy from Kapit. They were Kuala Rajang assemblyman Datuk Haji Len Talif Salleh, Semop assemblyman Abdullah Saidol, Jemoreng assemblyman Datuk Dr Juanda Jaya, Repok assemblyman Datuk Sri Huang Tiong Sii, Meradong assemblyman Datuk Ding Kuong Hiing, Meluan assemblyman Rolland Duat Jubin, and Tanjung Manis MP Yusuf Abdul Wahab.

Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) Youth chief Datuk Snowdan Lawan urged the people of Sarikei to fully support GPS as Sarawak should not be in the hands of Malaya-based parties.

“We can determine our own future now and we do not want these people to make a mess and bring their “virus” here,” he said.

Snowdan who is also Balai Ringin assemblyman said Pakatan Harapan (PH) only wanted to create disunity among Sarawakians.

“GPS or we call it a global positioning satellite can provide a better future for Sarawak,” he said.

He added that GPS is not a “no action, talk only (Nato)” entity but will ensure Sarawakians will not lose out to development programmes or projects in the state.

Last night (Jan 15) the flag rally continued in Betong.  Today (Jan16), the rally will be in Sri Aman before going to Balai Ringin and Serian.
