LAWAS, May 1 – Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi yesterday condemned the opposition for criticising the government yet had not done anything for the people. The opposition are only creating a nuisance and playing with the people’s sentiments to make them hate the government; the opposition don’t do anything while just want to get the allowance.
He said this at a Volunteer Reserve Corps (Rela) programme in Kampung Buduk Nur, Ba’kelalan, about 130 km from here. Zahid, who is also Home Minister said the opposition preferred to turn a blind eye to the government’s efforts and were only good at talking.
“When I was the Defence Minister, I brought in the army to build Jalan Jiwa Murni from Lawas-Ba’kelalan but when the road was damaged, Baru Bian (Sarawak PKR chairman) complained. As the assemblyman, he should have been the one to repair the road. He only knows how to talk but does not do his job,” he said.
He said five years as the assemblyman is enough for Baru Bian. People, return and support BN At the programme, Ahmad Zahid also pinned the Rela rank of assistant superintendent on nine village chiefs in Ba’kelalan. Also present was Ba’kelalan BN candidate Willie Liau.
