KUCHING: The Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Stakan Branch urged the public to vote out all Malayan parties so that street rallies will never happen in Sarawak.
“The behaviour of the Pakatan Harapan leadership in conducting a mass gathering on the streets is totally wrong amid the pandemic with no social distancing.
“The responsible thing to do is to prove your strength in parliament when the time comes and not on the streets.
“But instead, we are watching our lawmakers break the law live on the television,” said its chairman Datuk Sim Kiang Chiok.
He added that the scenes shown on television on Monday (Aug 2) were really embarrassing for Malaysia after being a beacon of light to other countries for its excellent work in combating Covid-19 thus far.
“As Sarawakians, we are certain many were also shocked to see a people’s representative and former federal minister standing in tandem with all his former Malayan masters there without regard for what his example will lead to.
“We plead with these people to desist this political fire for just a few more weeks so that the country can heal and our vaccination plan can be carried out without any distraction.
“While our focus has always been Sarawak First but if Malaya fails, we will fail, too. If Malaya dies, we die too because we are all connected as Malaysians,” he said.
The SUPP Stakan Branch hopes the police would investigate and charge those who participated in the protest based on several reports being made there against them.
“‘We will also be writing to the Sarawak Immigration Department to take note of those individuals in order to stop them from ever coming to Sarawak to further their agenda and protect our people from their unsavoury politics.
“As Sarawakians, we are thankful that the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government has sound leadership that cares only for the people and has not let us down in these trying times.
“Hence, we urge the people to vote out all Malayan parties so that this may never happen in Sarawak,” added.
