Rural Folks Condemn Alexander Nanta For Lauding The Implementation of GST

Wednesday, 26th October 2011

This MP should keep his mouth shut rather  than keep it open can anger the people. That was the most suitable advise that I could give to Alexander Nanta Linggi after I read an article published in Borneo Post yesterday.
I was stunned to read in Borneo Post how he lauded the BN leadership in imposing the GST. To the government the GST may be good but how about the rural folks especially the people of Kapit. People in Kapit should know what to do to punish their MP in the coming General Election in which many people predicted will be held in December 2011.

Borneo Post reports MP Datuk Alexander Nanta Linggi lauded the Goods and Service Tax (GST), which is implemented in 167 developed countries worldwide, as a good move to uplift the economy and improve people’s lives.

He said:
“To achieve a developed nation status in 8 years from now by the year 2020, we need to implement GST. GST is a vital tool for the development of the country. GST needs to be implemented to replace the existing national tax policy so as to be more efficient, transparent and effective,”
He said this when officiating at the closing of an awareness programme on GST organised by Royal Customs Department, Sibu branch in collaboration with Kapit District Office at Meligai Hotel here on Saturday afternoon.

“Despite being located far in the interior, at least Kapit is not left out of the programme as the division is one of the financial contributors to the development of the country. Hopefully the participants know what GST is and impart the knowledge to their colleagues and friends. It is a good beginning and I hope that more such programmes will be held here in the future. GST is something new to Kapit though only a handful of people know of the system,” he pointed out.
On the importance of GST, Nanta said the government could not rely on taxes alone which were insufficient to finance its various mega development programmes.

To Alex, dont just said about the mega projects, I have this question for this MP " How is the GST going to benefits the people  from the longhouses especially in Kapit? Dont you know by imposing GST will increase the price of goods?
