The BN is not unreasonable. After all that is what the Opposition are there for, to tell us the best way to work for the people of Sarawak.
Tan Sri Dr James Masing, Land Development MinisterTHE Barisan Nasional (BN) will take criticism from the opposition into account, if they are constructive and reasonable.
“The BN is not unreasonable. After all that is what the Opposition are there for, to tell us the best way to work for the people of Sarawak,” said Land Development Minister Tan Sri Dr James Masing when asked by reporters on his opinion on the approaches of the Opposition members in the august House.
He said DAP always get interrupted by the BN backbenchers because they did not say things right and they get their facts wrong.
“PKR, on the other hand, has a different approach. Baru Bian’s approach is critical of the government but he does it constructively. See Chee How has a pleasant tone when he speaks. Obviously PKR is a sane and reasonable group.
“Shouting does not go anywhere,” he said.
Meanwhile, state DAP chairman Wong Ho Leng said they will maintain their own approach.
“We are aware that there is decorum in the house and standing orders do apply.
“However, we will do what we have to do according to what our conscience guide us. Our focus is the plight of the people, which we will bring up to the Dewan with no fear. We speak without fear,” said the Bukit Assek assemblyman.
