LAWAS: The leaders of the ruling State Barisan Nasional (BN) do not need to be taught by “outsiders”, said Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Zone 7 Youth Chief Awangku Jinal Abedin Pengiran Haji Jawa.
“It is because the state BN leaders have visions and views that are more matured compared to ‘green-horned’ politicians.
“It would be wise for UMNO Youth Chief Khairy Jamaluddin not to interfere with the state’s domestic politics by asking the Chief Minister to step down.
He is only trying to teach ducks how to swim,” said Jinal yesterday.
He said the rapid development taking place in the state is a result of the Chief Minister’s foresight and that Sarawakians from Lawas to Lundu have all these while been living in peace, unity and harmony.
“Khairy obviously does not respect the stand taken Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak in supporting the transition process put forward by our Chief Minister.
“We are very disappointed that Khairy not only shows his immature attitude, but he also attempt to ignore what had been discussed between our Chief Minister and the Prime Minister regarding the power transition process,” he said.
According to Jinal, there were actually various factors relating to the transition process that many outsiders and even locals fail to understand.
“The main thing is to keep the momentum of development and unity among the people,” he said, adding that state BN always put people’s interest above individual interest.
“We do not question the ability of replacement but we are worried about the long and short term effects that would occur if the transition was done in a hurry.
“We want to tell Khairy or any other individual who made the absurd demand of asking the Chief Minister to step down not to interfere in the matter as a transition plan was already underway.” “We also ask political parties outside the state not to try to make their political capital in order to divert the attention of people for their own interests,” he added.
