Borneo Post July 11, 2012, Wednesday
KUCHING: State PKR liaisons chief Baru Bian yesterday claimed that some Barisan Nasional (BN) elected representatives have indicated their interests to join the opposition in the coming general election.
Without giving names, he said the elected representatives were both from Sabah and Sarawak.
“I have heard rumours (of BN elected representatives wanting to join the opposition) and they have approached me personally,” Baru told a press conference at PKR service centre here yesterday.
He added that the BN elected representatives who wanted to join the opposition were in disagreement with some BN policies.
Baru said the people’s support towards the opposition was getting stronger, citing his visit to Kota Kinabalu on Sunday which was very encouraging.
“I say that the response has been extraordinary. Where ever we went, there were not enough chairs for the people to sit,” he said.
Baru also said that PKR would remain focus in contesting 10 seats, including Julau where two local professionals had been going to the ground to canvass for support, in the coming general election.
Meanwhile, Baru said the ‘Kembar 3K’ pledge of peace and security, stability and harmony, and prosperity and progress by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak was nothing new.
“What does it mean for the people in the interior of Sarawak?” he asked.
He said there was no prosperity or stability when lands were continually being grabbed by crony companies with BN connections and unsolved cases involving landowners in rural areas being intimidated by gangsters hired by plantations owners.
