1. BROKEN PROMISES, IT IS TIME FOR LEGAL ACTION
Responding to the Prime Minister’s statement that the 20 percent oil royalty for Sabah and Sarawak would no longer be workable, Batang Lupar MP Dato’ Sri Nancy Shukri said it was time for Sarawak to take legal action.
She said, Sarawak had been acting within the rule of law but this time Sarawak should not give a face to Malaya as they are very ungrateful towards Sarawak
She further said the calm is over. Hence, there will be more excuses if Sarawak does not proceed with a lawsuit and there was no need to talk about the exchange of terms and conditions anymore.
2. SARAWAK CAN KISS ITS RIGHTS GOODBYE
Santubong Member of Parliament (MP) Dato’ Sri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar has once again come out bashing Putrajaya’s insistence on implementing its Village Community Management Council (MPKK).
Lambasted Pakatan Harapan Sarawak leaders who allowed Putrajaya to straddle the fence in their own backyard, he said Sarawak can kiss its rights goodbye under the Malaysia Agreement 1963, the Federal Constitution and to the state’s autonomy too.
Junaidi maintained that the state government is totally against the MPKK, seeing it as nothing more than the same tactical instrument used to subdue Kelantan and other states in Malaya to divide the people.
