I was in the coffee shop this morning and people voiced their concern if PH rules Sarawak. To them, Sarawak will go bankrupt if PH rules Sarawak. They voiced their unhappiness and urged Parti Bumi Kenyalang to lead the way in Quest of independence for Sarawak so that Sarawak will get off from the economic and political discrimination and suppression by Malaya.
Guan Eng being the Finance Minster of the Federal government is urged not to belittle the ability of Sarawakians. It is for the Sarawakians to chose their government and if GPS government is not up to the mark, surely, we will remove them.
Being from Malaya, all Malayan political parties have no business here. Malaya has nothing to do with Sarawak in the determination of Sarawak's destiny. Sarawak belongs to Sarawakians, not malaya. Our late CM Tan Sri Adenan Satem had advised Sarawakians to take care of Sarawak properly and therefore , it is not for malaya people to poke their nose here.
Do not get your proxies or agents to destabilise our economy and harmony here.
In Quest of Independence, Parti Bumi Kenyalang tells you to get Out! It's enough!
Since the British left, Sarawak had governed itself and over the years, despite allegations of pilferage and abuse, Sarawak was able to make much profit in most of it's investments. For this reason, Sarawak have in its coffer RM31 billion. We still have so much money in our coffer despite the fact fact that most of our revenues were taken by Malaya.
If Pakatan Harapan are so capable to manage the economy, then, return back to Sabah and Sarawak all marine wealth, territorial waters or sea territory, oil and gas and let us see whether Malaya can survive or not.
The fact that Sarawak was able to manage itself despite the fact that much money been taken by malaya, was because we always have good and patriotic finance ministers. The federal government should know Sarawakians are better fund managers and the government federal should appoint a Sarawakian, not a Malayan as a finance minister in the federal cabinet.
Sarawak have many outstanding and dedicated professionals and Sarawakians should be called to help sick industries or government linked companies to steer them to profit.
When our Malaysian Airlines System (MAS) was in financial trouble, it was a Sarawakian, Idris Jala, from the Sarawak hinterland, that steered MAS out of trouble. After Idris Jala was no more with MAS, problems arise again.
Despite huge amounts of revenues collected by the federal government from Sabah and Sarawak, the federal government could not manage the funds well, causing debts to accumulate now, which is said more than one trillion ringgit. The debts were accumulated over the years are so huge, and Dr Mahathir being the 4th Prime Minister, who sat on the Chair for 22 years has much to answer why there were massive debts and failed industries.
DAP was there as our watchdog could not do the check and balance work and should partly be blamed for the massive debts. Likewise, DAP also could not help to control the abuse of funds or pilferage caused by Najib's government. Why should Sarawakians and Sabahans be made to shoulder the national debts which are not caused by them?
The revenues that went to the federal government from Sabah and Sarawak are not only 95% of our oil and gas but also revenues collected by government departments like Inland Revenue, Customs and Excise, Land Transport. Gone now are also our marine wealth as licensing for deep sea fishing are controlled by Malaya.
We have very little return of our money taken by malaya to develop our Sarawak nation.
Malaya's second wave of imperialism, by *Tawan Sarawak* strategy is to capture the Sarawak State Parliament and if malaya succeeds, our lands especially, the dayaks lands, which now mostly remained unsurveyed and untitled will be at the mercy of the PH government. There will be nothing to prevent mega companies fron Malaya be alienated with huge lands. The dayaks will find endless struggles to protect their lands from encroachments.
If Pakatan Harapan (PH) of which DAP is a part rules Sarawak, the fear of Sarawakians is that, they will go all out to mine all our natural resources. Mega companies from Malaya will be called in to mine them. We still have unmined gold in Bau area. We also have coal and many others resources in which our state government until now, dared not to mine for fear that Malayans will swarm into Sarawak to dig our property away. Soon, not only our oil and gas which are now gone, our other resources including lands will be gone too.
The people in the rural areas where most dayaks live, will have to wait perhaps, another fifty years to be connected by proper roads. This is because the federal government will forever, ignore us by holding funds from us.
