Let us move on – together as a team

The dust has settled for the Sarawak State elections and the results are plain for all to see. This is not the time for recrimination but for reflection.

All our candidates have done their best and congratulations to all is due for the hard work, determination and commitment. For those who won, more hard work awaits even as we rejoice in our victory.

For those who lost, we must chalk it up to experience and not forget that in defeat, magnanimity of heart and spirit is the measure of true grit. You remain our heroes.

It is said that courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. But there are times when it takes even greater courage to sit down and listen. The people of Sarawak have spoken and we the national opposition must take these lessons to heart and listen.

The message is loud and clear – the people disapprove of fighting among the opposition. We could have done better if we had been more united by that spirit of working together – as we did in the past. We must recognise that coalition partners will continue to have differences but the conviction of togetherness will enable us to transcend these differences for a common goal for the future of our nation.

Although KEADILAN maintained its seats, DAP’s defeat is our defeat. In fact, the defeat of any member of the coalition is a defeat for KEADILAN. In this regard, Amanah and PAS must continue to soldier on together with KEADILAN and DAP so that all of us can move forward to face GE14 together – as a team.

They say that the lessons of history were always there to guide us if only we had listened.

In all humility, I am listening. Since the results closed, I have been getting an almost endless flow of messages and I am humbled by the words of encouragement from colleagues and friends. I am even more grateful for the suggestions and advice given to me on how who we could move forward.

In this spirit of humility, I call upon the leaders of the opposition to meet, to reflect and to resolve our differences for the sake of the higher good for indeed as political parties none can be higher than the good of the nation.

I sincerely believe that in this spirit of brotherhood, give and take, and mutual respect – we shall, God willing, rise again.

SUBANG BESTARI, 7 MEI : Inisiatif Kerajaan Negeri melaksanakan dasar Rumah Mampu Milik memenuhi hasrat rakyat miliki kediaman pertama, kata Menteri Besar, Dato’Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.

Beliau berkata, Kerajaan Negeri konsisten memastikan projek perumahan rumah mampu milik ini diteruskan dalam tempoh tiga tahun untuk memenuhi permintaan dan keperluan masyarakat memiliki kediaman sendiri.

subangbestari 3“Sementara Kerajaan Negeri terus aktif membina perumahan rumah mampu milik ini, kita sasarkan mahu membina 15,000 unit rumah dalam tempoh tiga tahun.

“Namun saya gembira mengumumkan sambutan daripada syarikat pemaju Worldwide, PKNS dan lainnya cukup baik kini, maka tidak mustahil dan InsyaAllah kita bukan sahaja dapat mencapai jumlah 15,000 sahaja.

“Tetapi saya percaya lebih 18,000 boleh dilaksanakan dalam tempoh dua atau tiga tahun akan datang,” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada Majlis Pelancaran dan Pendaftaran Rumah Selangorku di Tanah Lapang Sekolah Kebangsaan Subang Bestari Seksyen U5, di sini, hari ini.

Pembangunan projek Rumah Selangorku terbaru di kawasan ini menawarkan 388 unit rumah kediaman Seri Aduria dan Seri Musytari dengan harga serendah RM150,000 di atas tanah berkeluasan 2.04 hekhtar.

Mohamed Azmin juga menyarankan supaya pemaju menawarkan lebih banyak lagi perumahan mampu milik bagi memenuhi keperluan rakyat memiliki kediaman sendiri.

“Diharap syarikat pemaju Worldwide dapat meneliti bahawa jumlah 388 tidak cukup. Kalau boleh bina lebih banyak lagi untuk rakyat Selangor. ”

“Kalau tiada tanah? Buat permohonan kepada Kerajaan Negeri, sebab tanah di Selangor bukan untuk bina padang golf dan saya memang tidak akan luluskan.

“Sebaliknya saya akan luluskan pembinaan rumah rakyat mampu dimiliki,” katanya.

Terdahulu, lebih 500 masyarakat mengambil peluang membuat permohonan dengan Lembaga Perumahan Hartanah Selangor bagi mendapatkan kediaman Rumah Selangorku.

[ PRESS RELEASE ] Message to Sarawakians

 

 PRESS RELEASE

 6 MAY 2016

 

My dear Sarawakians,

It is most unfortunate that I have been stopped from entering this beautiful state and being with you today. Your Chief Minister has demanded that I should write in to appeal. But why should I be so slavish to Adenan Satem?

After all, it is you, the Sarawakian people that I want to see.

I travelled to Sarawak in order to give support to our KEADILAN candidates in their final hours of this election campaign, to join hands and drink in the spirit of the courage and resolve of the Sarawakian people and to stand shoulder to shoulder with your leaders and assemblymen like Baru Bian, See Chee How, and Ali Biju as well as the others who are also working so hard to be your representatives.

I was really gearing up the whole of last night, sleepless and very excited to help the campaign for our candidates who are indeed an absolute inspiration to all Malaysians, particularly so, to KEADILAN, myself and Sarawakians.

They are the peoples’ heroes. They are my heroes.

You are blessed with candidates who are passionate and totally committed to the cause of Sarawakians. They have struggled for decades to fight for a better Sarawak, defending the peoples’ rights, their ancestral rights to the land of Sarawak, working tirelessly on the ground with all the different communities. This is the real meaning of standing up for the rights of Sarawak, which, in case anyone has forgotten, is a founding member of the Federation of Malaysia.

While no one is questioning the constitutional basis of the federation, there is no doubt that issues of autonomy for Sarawak are of genuine concern. In fact, we in KEADILAN ever since our inception have fought for genuine autonomy for Sarawak.

We fervently believe that the people of Sarawak must be given whatever that is rightly due to them.

For too long, with the connivance of BN leaders from the Peninsula, the Sarawak BN leaders have been bleeding the people dry, short-changing them in terms of their welfare and socio-economic development.

As if the poverty and the high cost of living is not bad enough to oppress the people of Sarawak, the BN government, backed by 25 Sarawak BN Members of Parliament has seen it fit to pass the GST causing even further hardship and suffering for the people.

For decades, the people of Sarawak have also been denied the billions of ringgit of oil royalty rightly due to them. For how long are Sarawakians prepared to be humiliated by Prime Minister Najib who has publicly declared in front of your Chief Minister that oil royalty is not a priority?

Adenan Satem can place all the barriers and all the hurdles to prevent me from entering Sarawak but he will not be able to prevent the winds of change from sweeping across the land of the Kenyalang, brought on by the passion and the will of the people of Sarawak and their leaders.

My dear Sarawakians,

The time is right. The future of Sarawak is in your hands. Tomorrow is polling day. Seize the moment, make that difference and victory is yours.

Press Statement – On being barred from entering Sarawak

PRESS RELEASE

6 MAY 2016

On being barred from entering Sarawak

I have just been barred from entry into Sarawak and am detained against my will at the holding area at the Kuching International Airport pending deportation back to the Peninsula.

I hold Tan Sri Adenan Satem accountable for this most unfortunate and regrettable situation but at the same time I feel very sorry for him for resorting to this action.

Being drunk with power, Adenan Satem has forgotten that with power comes responsibility. He must use it responsibly in good faith for the betterment of the people of Sarawak, not vindictively to spite his political opponents.

In barring me from entering Sarawak, he is flaunting his high and mighty executive muscle as Chief Minister but he does not seem to realise that he has actually demeaned the dignity and stature of his office by stooping so low to treat a fellow State leader in such a manner.

Personally, barring me is indeed no skin off my nose but is a great affront to the office of the Menteri Besar of Selangor to which I have been duly appointed by His Royal Highness the Sultan.

As I said just a week ago, in taking this arrogant stand towards his fellow Malaysian leaders, Adenan Satem has crossed the line and exposed himself as being reckless in the use of his executive power.

This is apart from the fact that the ban is a blatant violation of the law. Section 67 of the Immigration Act clearly confers the right to enter Sabah and Sarawak “for the sole purpose of engaging in legitimate political activity”.

If Adenan Satem says that I am coming here only to campaign for the state elections and not as a State Menteri Besar, then he must at the same time accept that Section 67 would make his action totally illegal and unconstitutional because campaigning is indeed a legitimate political activity.

This widespread barring of opposition leaders from entering Sarawak is therefore a brazen violation of the law, utterly shameful and a manifestation of the reckless abuse of power.

PASIR PUTEH – Seramai 29 asnaf menerima rumah serta diberi peluang menjana pendapatan dengan mengusahakan tanaman cili menerusi Program Penempatan Agroekonomi Desa Alam Shah di Kampung Gong Jenarah, Bukit Awang, dekat sini.

Program kerjasama strategik di antara Lembaga Zakat Selangor dan Majlis Agama Islam dan Adat Istiadat Melayu Kelantan (Maik) itu membabitkan kos RM8.3 juta dalam kawasan seluas lebih 15 hektar.

Pengerusi Lembaga Zakat Selangor, Tan Sri Syed Anwar Ibni Tuanku Syed Putra Jamalullail berkata, golongan asnaf menerima rumah yang lengkap dengan perabot dan kemudahan asas.

Katanya, kawasan pertanian seluas 0.46 hektar kepada setiap peserta disediakan bagi membolehkan penghuni Desa Alam Shah itu mengusahakan tanaman cili kulai di bawah bimbingan Kelab Cili Nestle dan Pertubuhan Peladang Kawasan (PPK) Bukit Awang.

“Hasil cili dibeli secara kontrak oleh Nestle (M) Berhad, setiap dari mereka dijangka menjana pendapatan RM1,200 sebulan selain diberi bimbingan dalam tempoh lima tahun bagi mengubah kehidupan dan membebaskan diri dari kelompok kemiskinan.

“Program di bawah projek ‘Selangor Prihatin’ ini berjaya mewujudkan kawasan penempatan baharu berasaskan agroekonomi bagi membela nasib kumpulan sasaran yang dihimpit kemiskinan,” katanya ketika berucap pada Majlis Perasmian dan Pengurniaan Kunci Rumah Kepada Penghuni Desa Alam Shah di sini, semalam.

Majlis itu disempurnakan Sultan Kelantan, Sultan Muhammad V yang disaksikan Sultan Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah.

Turut hadir Menteri Besar Selangor, Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali; Tengku Temenggong Kelantan, Datuk Tengku Muhammad Rizam Tengku Aziz; Timbalan Yang Dipertua Maik, Dr Nik Mohd. Azlan Abdul Hadi.

Majlis juga dihadiri Timbalan Menteri Besar Kelantan, Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah dan Pengerusi Majlis Agama Islam Selangor, Datuk Setia Mohamad Adzib Mohd Isa.

Syed Anwar berkata, projek itu adalah inisiatif dan keprihatinan Sultan Selangor agar manfaat zakat Selangor dapat disalurkan ke negeri Kelantan sebagaimana berjayanya projek yang sama yang telah dilaksanakan di Taman Desa Asnaf, Perlis pada tahun 2013.

Tambahnya, kawasan itu turut dilengkapi kemudahan asas seperti surau, dewan serbaguna, pusat sumber, kedai runcit, jalan berturap dan padang permainan bagi memberi keselesaan kepada peserta terlibat.

“Aspek pendidikan, agama, akademik, sosial serta ekonomi kumpulan sasaran diberi fokus yang mana ia dibangunkan dengan kerangka pelaksanaan yang tersusun di bawah pemantauan Lembaga Zakat Selangor selama dua tahun.

Salah seorang penghuni Desa Alam Shah yang ditemui, Azwan Mat Jais, 36, berkata, program itu memberi semangat kepada keluarganya untuk keluar dari kedaifan hidup dengan pendapatan yang tidak menentu.

“Saya bersyukur kerana memiliki rumah secara percuma. Selama ini saya menumpang rumah ibu saya. Ini merupakan peluang keemasan untuk kami berusaha pendapatan lebih baik,” katanya.
