2013 Apr 25 - Fixed deposit: Najib insulting people of Sabah

Fixed deposit: Najib insulting people of Sabah

KOTA KINABALU, April, 25, 2013: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak once again insulted the people in this state by reiterating Sabah as a fixed deposit, described by Datuk Seri Yong Teck Lee as insensitive to the feelings of the people in Sabah who mostly do not believe such tag.

"Najib is insensitive and the statement is an insult to the people of Sabah," said the SAPP President when commenting on the PM's statement who stated that the state will remain a fixed deposit for the Barisan Nasional (BN).

Sabah remains a fixed deposit to the BN and the 13 component parties unanimously supported it including the people in the interior.

Najib who campaigned in Tenom recently also rejected the notion that the fixed deposit tag is getting weak.

Yong said Najib's statement is insensitive and insulting to the people of Sabah because majority of the people believe that it is only a sweetener by the BN to blind the eyes of the people to gain more votes.

The former Chief Minister once predicted that BN will no longer be able to call Sabah as its fixed deposit after the 13th General Election.

The people will cast their vote on May 5.

The dissatisfaction on the economy thrust and policies that are affecting Sabah will affect the result of the general election this time.

Among the issues that are burdening the people but never resolved is the issue of illegal immigrants, issuance of identification document and the use of the IC to vote.

Normally, phantom voters would cast their vote for the ruling government because that is the condition for the BN government to issue ICs to them.

The SAPP also voiced the concern of consumers in Sabah on the high price of goods compared to in other states in the country even though the BN Government had promised to settle it.

"What is the use of the state as a fixed deposit if the Barisan Nasional leaders are busy fighting for their own interest and not for the welfare of the people," said Yong.

He sees the trend of dissatisfaction among the low and middle-income people in Sabah as an advantage to the SAPP and other opposition parties.

"They will vote for the parties that listen to their grievances," he said.

The question now, he said, is whether Sabah becomes important to the BN only when they want to retain their power.

"Is Sabah now important as a fixed deposit because it is rich with natural resources and use the wealth to finance other states and then leave Sabah as the poorest in Malaysia?" he asked.

He also questioned what will the government do to protect the welfare and interest of the people in Sabah including social and economy problems, illegal immigrants and backwardness in terms of development.

"Is Sabah only important because the BN need its political powers and Sabah's natural resources?" he asked.

Whenever there is a general election, leaders from the Federal will come to Sabah in numbers every week because they are aware that Sabah is important for them to maintain power in Putrajaya.
