Warisan is using BN, PBS as scapegoats for their mistake
KOTA KINABALU, Jan 21, 2020:
Warisan-led administration must stop pointing fingers at the previous government for their mistake of implementing the Sabah Temporary Pass (PSS).
"They realised that PSS was a mistake, and paid heavily when Warisan lost to Barisan Nasional in the Kimanis by-election.
"So now, they are using BN and Parti Bersatu Sabah as scapegoats to confuse the people and act innocent. They can blame us but the people are matured enough to judge," said PBS deputy youth chief, Jonnybone Kurum, today.
Defending his chief Christopher Mandut's call for Deputy Home Minister Datuk Azis Jamman's resignation, Kurum added that he (Azis) should be a gentleman and respect the wishes of the voters of Kimanis who rejected the PSS by stepping down voluntarily.
Responding to Warisan deputy youth chief, Mohd Ismail Ayob, Kurum said that the real hypocrites were from the Warisan leadership themselves for singing a different tune after becoming the government.
"Since the 14th general elections, the Warisan-led government had made various promises and pledges, and after nearly two years, nothing concrete has been done.
"And now, during the Kimanis by-election, they made more promises to entice voters support, but their efforts backfired and lost the battle," he said.
Touching on the PSS, Kurum said Azis and others tried to confuse the people, and implicated PBS Premier Advisor Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan on the proposal of another identification documents for illegal immigrants called the Residence Pass.
"But they had woken a sleeping dragon. Tan Sri (Pairin) decided to come clean on the Residence Pass and PSS, and proved that these are two different documents, and it had opened the people's eyes to fully reject the PSS.
"I believe in our leadership. There is no need to question their previous decisions. What's clear is that PSS and the Residence Pass are two different things … so maybe the Warisan leaders should do their homework first before pointing fingers.
"I hope their statements today will not backfire in the future," said Kurum.
