IT is time for GPS to choose an alliance that can offer a better deal for Malaysia to fight the pandemic and revive the economy.
Serian DAP chief Brolin Nicholsion said that due to the current political situation, GPS needs to show the people whether they were sincere for the well-being of the rakyat or if they are just a ‘Jaguh Kampung’ with a lot of political dramas.
He said it was the failure of the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government led by Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to understand the problems faced by the Malaysians and it led to the dissatisfaction of many Malaysians.
Since PN came to power, most B40 and M40 families were affected by the pandemic, with 20% of M40 losing their income, he said in a statement today.
“With the inadequate financial aid given by PN, it is hard to revive the economy as the purchasing power is still low due to the pandemic situation.”
Nicholsion said the Emergency was supposed to curb the virus spread but was used to keep PN in power with no accountability and transparency to the people.
“GPS was the one that supported PN and became part of the federal government. During the 18 months being part of the federal government, GPS was silent when buying the support of MPs.
“Has GPS already forgotten about the corruption-free pledge they made in 2019? Or was it just a political gimmick?” he asked.
The special assistant to Sarawak DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen said it was time for GPS to prove that they are not a ‘Jaguh Kampung’ that only made noise in Sarawak but silent when they are in power and just followed orders.
“Don’t inherit a ‘Jaguh Kampung’ political alliance for the next generation of Sarawak,” he added.
He said GPS was with Barisan Nasional before and now with PN, and both miserably failed to save the country and they have seen how the people rejected both alliances.
