Malaysia Agreement: Pandikar belittling S’wak, State Assembly

15th November, 2017

KOTA KINABALU: Tamparuli assemblyman Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Bumburing has advised the State Legislative Assembly not to be misled by Tan Sri Pandikar Amin’s inadequate inference on the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) to disallow its motion (on MA63) to be debated at the coming State Assembly Session.

In a statement yesterday, Bumburing retorted that Pandikar’s position on the status of the MA63 is not only tantamount to belittling the wisdom of the state government whose leaders are in concurrent with the opposition’s stand of the MA63, but also belittling the members of the Sarawak’s State Assembly who recently unanimously passed a motion in the State Assembly on the same issue.

“For the sake of Sabah and Malaysia, the best and opportune time to discuss the issue is to allow the motion to be tabled and debated in the coming Sabah State Assembly sitting and let the people be informed whether the State Legislative Assembly and the Sabah Government agrees with Pandikar or otherwise.

He said it was nothing more than futile effort to conceal the details of the Malaysian Agreement from the public because the people of Sabah and Sarawak are now very much well read and informed about the details of the agreement.

He also dismissed Pandikar’s remarks that claims by certain quarters that Sabah’s rights are not fully executed under the MA63 are empty political rhetoric to incite anger and hatred among the people in Sabah.

“It is not an empty rhetoric from the opposition parties, as opined by Pandikar, as the many stake holders in Sabah and Sarawak have openly voiced their opinion and they are in unison in their quest to get the MA63 honored, respected and implemented.

“On the other hand, it is Tan Sri Pandikar’s rhetoric that is actually empty as he was talking to an almost empty hall which manifested the public’s disgust on his (Pandikar’s) effort to conceal the truth.

“He had tried to rationalize the dismal attendance by saying that he did not invite many people, however, the many empty chairs clearly showed that he had expected a large crowd to listen to him otherwise, why so many chairs were prepared in the hall in the first place?” said Bumburing. – By Michael Teh
