Sabah Progressive Party laments Barisan Nasional’s broken promises in Sabah

 

SABAH Progressive Party (SAPP) president Datuk Yong Teck Lee has given Barisan Nasional an ultimatum to resolve Sabah’s issues by August.

Yong also said the real question in Sabah was not whether Barisan MPs would cross over but the actual problems that Sabah had been facing.

Crossovers only concern the central government because they are worried about their own stability,” he said.

Yong also said that issues such as illegal immigrants and cooking oil subsidies were not new but Barisan had not been doing anything to resolve them.

Citing the example of the Cooking Oil Subsidy Scheme, he said it was not fair for the Government to force Sabah oil palm growers to bear the subsidies since June 2007, when cooking oil is consumed by the whole country.

“Sabah planters make up two-thirds of the (total) number in the country so basically they are paying two-thirds of the subsidies.

We have raised this subject but the Government said they will look into it, and they have been looking into the matter for 11 months already,” he said.

Barisan has until August to resolve Sabah issues, says Yong

    The sapp is doing a very right thing for the people of sabah. The umno government have put into the neon light of the more important problem of the security of the state than the development for too long. The YBs of umno have adopted the tradition of development through the practice of corruptionfor too long. The sudden deprived of the subsidy indirectly send the message to the malaysian that the govt has already faced serious deficit because of corruption . What is the point of talking about development when the welfare of the sabahan is abandoned and the national security is not taken care of.?
