Masing and the group as reported in Borneo Post will submit the petition to PAS President, Haji Hadi Awang demanding his apology over his remark on the reason n by PKR lost in Batang Ai during the by-election last April.
Haji Abdul Hadi as quoted by Malaysiakini on 11th July 2009 said that Most of the by-elections were won by Pakatan Rakyat except in Batang Ai. They lost in Batang-Ai because the voters there still wearing loincloth or traditional Iban man trousers or sirat (I interpreted it as with outdated mentality).
This remark has been heavily politicized by PRS by Masing and his band of Iban Traitor politicians in PRS, by their short sighted and loosed interpretation, in order to gain the support of the Iban-Dayak voters. Masing even went on and dared Haji Hadi to visit the longhouses, probably to show him the conditions of the longhouses without the basic amenities.
Its youth wing in Lubok Antu also planned a demonstration in Betong but has been cancelled due to problem in getting a Police Permit.
I’ve covered this here but today would like repeat and urge Masing and his band of Iban Traitor politicians in PRS to STOP politicizing the matters. PRS should submit the petition to Tok Uban or PM Najib demanding for bigger issues that have been affecting the Iban-Dayak such as fight for a Chief Minister post, provide better basic amenities such as roads, electricity and clean water, better education for Iban-Dayak etc.
