DAP’s Impian Sabah Of Providing Basic Facilities To The Sabah Poor Will Be The Promise Of Change Towards A Better Sabah With Dignity, Freedom, Justice, Democracy And Integrity.(en/cn)

DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng’s Opening Speech At The DAP Sabah State Ordinary Convention On 11.1.2014 In Kota Kinabalu.

DAP’s Impian Sabah of providing basic facilities to the Sabah poor will be the promise of change towards a better Sabah with dignity, freedom, justice, democracy and integrity. By using DAP’s limited resources to provide water and electricity to native Sabahan villages neglected by BN over the last 50 years, DAP can prove by words and deeds that we can do much more in government than the little we are able to do as an opposition party.

Apart from breaking their promises in the General Elections promises, what has BN done to reassure Sabahans that Sabah is an equal partners in the Malaysian Federation? BN has failed to undertake even the basic duty of providing security to Sabahans not just from criminals but also from foreign invaders, until tourists can be killed and kidnapped at will.

Unlike BN, the PR state government in Penang did not increase water rates, quit rent and assessment charges. To distract attention from the price hikes by the BN Federal government in sugar, petrol, power tariffs and road toll, BN stokes the fires of racial and religious hatred.

Even Sabahan religious rights are now threatened by UMNO’s racist and extremist games. The Inspector-General of Police said yesterday that he wished that the Internal Security Act is revived. Revived to do detain Malaysians without trial from practicing their rights of religious freedom as they have always done in the past?

Can ISA stop corruption? Can ISA stop the cabotage policy and implement 1Malaysia,1Price to be fair to our Sabahan brothers and sisters? Can ISA grant Sabahans a fair share of their oil and gas revenues by increasing it from the present 5% to 20%? Can ISA solve the illegal migrant issues in Sabah or even build the Pan Borneo Highway?

Unlike BN, the Penang PR state government kept our promises by not imposing any increases in water tariff, quit rent and assessment for 2014. We have provided economic growth, job opportunities until we have a workers shortage in Penang and becoming the only state in Malaysia to wipe out poverty.

For those who claim that investment is declining in Penang, I wish to refer to a to a Parliamentary written reply from the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to DAP Kuching MP Chong Chien Jen in September 2013,

“Bagi tempoh 2010 hingga Ogos 2013, sejumlah 3,023 projek perkilangan dengan pelaburan berjumlah RM174.3 bilion telah diluluskan. Daripada jumlah tersebut, sebanyak RM102.9 bilion (59 peratus) merupakan pelaburan asing, manakala RM71.3 bilion (41 peratus) adalah pelaburan tempatan.

Dalam tempoh yang sama, lima negeri yang mencatat jumlah pelaburan asing tertinggi adalah:
• Pulau Pinang (RM19.7 bilion daripada 186 projek perkilangan).
• Johor (RM16.7 bilion daripada 374 projek perkilangan).
• Sarawak (RM15.6 bilion daripada 54 projek perkilangan).
• Selangor (RM15 bilion daripada 439 projek perkilangan).
• Kedah (RM8 bilion daripada 79 projek perkilangan).

Sabah is not even in the top five but is actually in the bottom five.

What PR promises is to get Sabah back in the top five with a new model of “Maximum governance, Minimum government”, This approach will provide good governance that ensures rule of law, no corruption, social justice for the poor and a continuous pursuit of excellence with minimal interference in private sector business, private lives of individuals and their religious beliefs,

Maximum governance for the good of society but minimal government so we do fully respect the rights of citizens as anak Sabah and anak Malaysia. Sabahans have nothing to lose. BN’s rule over 50 years has only made Sabah the poorest state in Malaysia. PR’s promises of “maximum governance, minimal government” instead can transform you into one of the richest states in Malaysia.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2014年1月11日在亚庇沙巴州行动党州代表大会上发表开幕词:

民主行动党沙巴梦想工程为沙巴贫困的一群提供基本设施,这将是我们改变沙巴的承诺,让沙巴更有尊严、自由、民主及廉正。

民主行动党沙巴梦想工程为沙巴贫困的一群提供基本设施,这将是我们改变沙巴的承诺,让沙巴更有尊严、自由、民主及廉正。我们利用行动党有限的资源,为沙巴的原住民村庄提供水源及电源,他们在过去50年都被国阵政府忽略了,行动党可以言论及行动证明,我们若成为政府,能够比我们在反对党时做得更多。

除了对自己的竞选宣言食言,国阵做了什么向沙巴人民保证沙巴在马来西亚联邦是平等伙伴?国阵连最基本的、保护沙巴人的安全都做不到,他们无法确保沙巴人免受罪案威胁、也无法确保沙巴免受外国人入侵,甚至连游客也任意被杀害及绑架。

民联与国阵不同,槟城民联政府没有提供水费、租金及门牌税。国阵为了转移大家对联邦政府导致的白糖、汽油、电费、过路费起价,还煽风点火,企图制造 种族及宗教仇恨。

就连沙巴宗教权利也被巫统的种族主义及极端主义威胁。总警长昨天说,他希望恢复内部安全法令。让他们像以前那样,援引内安法令继续无审讯扣留马来西亚人、阻遏他们实践宗教自由权利?

内安法令能不是阻止贪污?内安法令能不能阻止沿海运输政策、实施“一个马来西亚、一个价格”?内安法令能不能让沙巴人公平分享他们的石油及天然气收入,让石油天然气税务从5%增加到20%?内安法令能不能阻止沙巴的非法移民问题甚至为沙巴兴建泛婆罗洲高速公路?

槟州民联政府信守承诺,在2014年没有提高水费、租金及门牌税。我们提供经济成长、就业机会,直到槟城出现劳工短缺情况,也成为全马唯一一个扫除贫穷的州属。

至于那些说槟城投资下跌的人士,我谨此找出首相拿督斯里纳吉针对行动党古晋区国会议员张健仁于2013年9月的国会提问答复的记录:

“在2010年到2013年8月期间,我国共批准了3023项工厂投资,投资额达1743亿令吉。其中1029亿令吉(59%)为外来投资,而713亿令吉(41%)为本地投资。

同时期内,获得最多外来投资项目的五个州属分别为:
• 槟城 (186项工厂投资,值197亿令吉)
• 柔佛 (374项工厂投资,值167亿令吉).
• 砂拉越 (54项工厂投资,156亿令吉).
• 雪兰莪 (439项工厂投资,150亿令吉).
• 吉打 (79项工厂投资,80亿令吉).
沙巴不仅没有在五强,而是在最后五名。

民联答应协助沙巴晋身五强,成为“最佳治理、最少干涉”(Maximum governance, Minimum government)的模范。这个方式能够提供良好施政,确保法治、杜绝贪污、确保穷人的社会公义、不停地追逐卓越之余尽量不干预私人界的生意、个人的生活及宗教信仰。

为了更好的社会进行最佳治理但是尽量减少干预,完全尊重沙巴 、马来西亚居民的权利。沙巴人豁出去了。国阵执政50年,只是让沙巴成为全马最贫穷的州属。民联承诺“最佳治理、最少干预”,可能让你们成为全马最富有的州属。

林冠英
