SABAH PEOPLE CONTINUES BLAME KL AND UMNO


THE PEOPLE undeniably continues blaming UMNO led Barisan Nasional (BN) Government in Kuala Lumpur and Sabah for the perennial huge presence of illegal immigrants (PTI) and the loss of 95 per cent oil revenues as well as problems over Native Customary Rights (NCR) lands.
Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) said the PTI continuously swarm Sabah because it is easy to get MyKad, the Malaysian identity card, through back door as UMNO leaders here and in Kuala Lumpur have a hand on it.
“It is called 'Project IC' as have been reported in a book written by Mutalib MD who is a former aide of UMNO leader here. As such, State Speaker Datuk Seri Salleh Tun Said should not have denial syndrome over the issue of huge presence of PTI statewide.
“Hundred thousands of PTI keep on coming into Sabah due to the special treatment given by UMNO, which is backed by leaders in Kuala Lumpur since UMNO spread its wings into the State,” SAPP Treasurer General Dullie Marie said responding to Salleh’s statement, which was published in local dailies.
On oil royalty, Dullie said Kuala Lumpur are enjoying 95 per cent revenues over 36 years while Sabah only receives the remaining 5 per cent although the petroleum are being extracted from here.
He said the present Sabah BN Government have never pressed Kuala Lumpur for a revision of the oil royalty although Sabah remain one of the poorest State in Malaysia.
He went on saying that it seems that the present Sabah BN Government is happy that Sabah is still poor and lack behind in all development sapects compared to the other states in the country.
Dullie said NCR lands issue only emerge under the administration of the present UMNO led Sabah BN Government.
“As far as I could remember, NCR lands issue have never happen before. Many folks in the interiors were chased out of their villages with their houses, crops and cemetery were destroyed. This inhumane acts only happen around eight few years ago,” he added.
Salleh was quoted as saying that there is no need for Sabah to fear that it would lose its autonomy or the people their rights.
He also said that the many illegal immigrants getting MyKad here due to their blood relationship with certain leader and ordinary local.
Salleh blamed local land owners for selling their assets for quick bucks resulting in many lands fell in the hands of private companies from Kuala Lumpur.
He also blamed past leaders for signing the oil royalty agreement, which gave 95 per cent revenues to Kuala Lumpur via Petronas.
The oil royalty agreement was signed by the then Chief Minister Datuk Harris Salleh (now Tan Sri) and witnessed by Datuk Joseph Pairin Kitingan (now Tan Sri) on behalf of Sabah few decaded ago. - Sabahkini

  1. The Opposition’s promise of increasing the royalty of oil producing states from 5% to 20% is unrealistic and an empty promise.

    1. If the Opposition is truly sincere to protect Sabah's rights, why 20%? Why not 100% since the oil rightfully belongs to Sabah.

  2. The Opposition’s offer did not make economic sense and was just its usual gimmick to woo voters.

  3. Among the Pakatan Rakyat’s promise are to increase the royalty to 20% for oil producing states, reduction of petrol prices, wiping out outstanding PTPTN loans worth about RM40bil and ending toll collection, which will cost millions.

    1. Indeed, Drako. I supposed the opposition would still need to depend on Sabah's resources to run the country, just as always.

  6. State Legislative Assembly Speaker, Datuk Mohd Salleh Keruak said:
    "But when we start asking why is the land here or that large piece of land in that district is owned by foreigners or West Malaysians we have to ask ourselves, and look deeper.

    "Then we will see that it is because our own people (original land owners), were the ones to sell the lands for fast and easy cash," he said, when winding-up the State-level social media convention in Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Saturday.

    "Another issue people often ask now is, why are there so many illegal immigrants? Where did they get all their ICs? Well, it may be because a certain person here says this person is his long distant relative, or that leader might say those people are his brothers," Salleh said.

    Therefore, he said, it is not right for the locals here to keep blaming others when, in fact, they are the ones who made the decisions and were not forced into things or decisions they did not agree to.
    Agreed?

  7. The decision to call for the setting of the RCI is seen then as a clear example that Umno Sabah could indeed act on its own for the interest of Sabah's people. And once more, we can also say the Sabah BN government under Musa is indeed a caring government.

  9. Sebagai penduduk Sabah, janji yang ditaburkan oleh pembangkang hanyalah janji politik semata-mata. Namun kebenaranya tidak pasti lagi.

  10. Projek IC bermula pada tahun 1990.. sepanjang tempoh itu sehingga hari ini, SAPP pernah menjadi sebahagian dari kerajaan BN malah pernah membentuk kerajaan.. apa yang mereka lakukan ketika itu untuk menyelesaikan masalah ini?? bersekongkol??

  11. masa SAPP berada dalam kerajaan BN, mereka lebih banyak mendiamkan diri berkenaan dengan masalah2 Sabah.. bila sudah tidak ada kuasa baru bising minta itu ini.. sedangkan ketika YTL menduduki kerusi KM Sabah, tidak ada pula beliau berusaha mendesak kerajaan persekutuan untuk menyelesaikan masalah kritikal di Sabah..
