SUPP Getting the People to be Clowns

It is interesting to watch what the SUPP will do next after losing their Sibu by election. Trying to find out what the Sibu people wants and refusing to face facts over what causes the loss, the SUPP is still at a lost, blaming everything and everyone from A to Z except themselves.

They started to put the blame on DAP for importing the West Malaysian culture followed by the fear and hate tactics used by Pakatan Raykat. Of course, the most idiotic statement came from their top boss who wailed the next day after the loss, “I don’t know what Sibu people want.”

Everyone knows why they lost except the SUPP. And everyone knows that PM, his Deputy and ministers were in Sibu to ‘woo’ the Sibu people with money. And don’t tell me the PM and his cabinet ministers are from Sarawak.

After a couple of weeks searching for answers, SUPP suddenly came out with a ‘brilliant’ solution. Do what the DAP did. SUPP starts to collect data from those landowners who had paid their hefty land premiums as a result of the unfair and unreasonable BN Government Land Policy announced in year 2007 and submitted them to Land and Survey.

Coming to such a desperate act, they decided to set up a booth in front of Kenyalang Theatre last Sunday and tomorrow, asking those who have paid their land lease renewal to come out and sign the petition for refund. It was so sad to see the pathetic act of SUPP.

I want to know the necessity for the SUPP to collect names when the data were already in their hands and the Land and Survey Department Sarawak. To refresh everyone’s memory, in December 2007 and 2008, SUPP Secretary General, Sim Kheng Hui came out in the media asking every resident to pay up fast for the land lease renewal. He said the renewal fees were already very cheap and urging the people not to delay in making their payment . He even told the public the longer they wait, the more expensive the premiums they have to pay.

As a result of SUPP's fault in 2007 & 2008, the people are now facing the problem of overpaying the land lease renewal premiums.

The SUPP is a Barisan Nasional coalition party. Why the need to collect data which was already in their files and in Land and Survey. Why don’t they bring up the people's problem in the state cabinet and said, Look here, we need to refund these people the overpaid land premium which has now gone down 50%, a tactic to win the voters over in Sibu by election.

SUPP is one of the ruling parties, their role is to come out with a policy in refunding all the moneys which are due to the people. That's why it is aptly for me to say in the recent state assembly meeting that SUPP is just a mere puppet of the Chief Minister. No guts at all to tell the Chief Minister of what the people want.

If there is a refund, all those who had paid would be more willingly go back to Land and Survey to collect their refund. There is no need for them to know who has paid up. And the SUPP don’t have to use the people as clowns for their act in gaining their political mileage. It is just too cheap. Have some dignity and pride. Go back to see Chief Minister and get him to refund the people who had already paid. SUPP should stop making fools of the people.

And I want to congratulate the Sibu people for being so brave to vote for DAP despite money used as a carrot by the Prime Minister to win their votes.

Sibu win is the People’s win!

SUPP remind me of the late Chinese Qing Dynasty. It is debt paying time for those crooked SUPP MPs.
