BATANG LUPAR, 15 Jan: The people of Sarawak now can be seen ready to reject Umno-BN how the people first rejected the British regime a long time ago before gaining independence.
Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said that the matter is no doubt following the support given by the people of Sarawak towards Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is increasing at present.
He said that the overwhelming interest towards PR proves that the people of Sarawak is ready to make changes.
“PR’s well received response proves that the people are ready for changes. Formerly the people rejected the British regime, now the people are rejecting the Umno-BN regime that has been administering for more than 50 years,” he said after attending a lecture and people friendly programme at Kampung Maludam.
PR is confident of taking over the reins of the government in the state of Sarawak from the Umno-BN leadership by winning more Parliamentary seats in the upcoming 13th General Elections (GE-13).
The programme was in conjunction with the Selangor Chief Minister’s working visit to several districts in Sarawak to reach out to voters before the commencement of GE-13.
The visit was also attended by Health, Plantation Workers, Poverty and Caring Government Exco, Dr Xavier Jayakumar.
For the record, in the 2011 Sarawak State Elections, PR won 15 district seats. DAP won a total of 12 seats while PKR won 3 seats.
