While BN always got their boosting win from the bumiputera candidates, the eyes are always focused on hot seats in constituencies where Chinese votes hold the majority. Too bad, the tsunami wave didn’t really materialize in Sarawak this time.
But for those of you who are die hard fans of BN, do you really understand the reality after 45 years of BN’s reign in Sarawak?
Sarawak has a lot of rich and famous Made in Sarawak politicians and tycoons but still having many people living in poverty. The fact is Sang Rambut Putih, Dr. G and their political cronies are getting richer each day. The same goes to the fortune reapers who devote themselves kissing these politicians’ feet. Many have been living in big mansions, buying properties everywhere, expanding business empire elsewhere and some with new mistresses too. It’s a type of political pyramid scheme exercised by them. Normal and disabled people face a huge economic gap compare to those fortunate people. Many are still fighting for the basic needs. Forget about been the biggest group at the low level of the pyramid working hard contributing to the economy of the state but in return receiving insufficient wages. Some don’t even have proper access to clean water, electricity, health and education.
The state also has the richest, the biggest forests, oil & gas in Malaysia but receiving minimum royalty back to the state. It’s a form of exploitation and humiliation by the Federal government to the people of Sarawak. The people don’t want to elaborate more on this, this reality is known to everyone in the country.
The secular education fails to achieve its purpose to educate people to the highest. Many in rural area leave schools as early as primary level due to unawareness of education values and poverty issues in family. Still there are others who still can’t read and write. A similar problem compared to the Orang Asli in Peninsular.
The government has failed to fulfill their obligation to ensure a safer environment for people. The state has experienced some of the gruesome criminal cases involving innocent people over the past few years. While many arrests had been made on Along due to their harassment to the people, other crimes such as armed robbery, which include robbery cum murder cases, have increase drastically over the years; needless to say, the petty crimes such as snatch thieves, stealing of steels from public and homes are also on the rise. Good thing is Dr. G seriously highlighted the measures to counteract criminals in the DUN assembly after his own home was broken-into not long ago.
Majority of properties in Sarawak are normally 60 years leasehold. With land values on the rise and property prices booming, there will be scenario in future where many people can’t afford to renew the tenure and on the line to lose their only place called home. Which means that no houses are free, even though the loan payment has been completed.
So after knowing some of the reality, would you like the same Blood Suckers to serve you again?
