Zuklifli Ticks Off Henry Ling

Kuching: SUPP Bintulu wannabe candidate for Kidurong should not use the word, ‘revolt’ (memberontak) as it is a harsh and serious [allegation] to use it against PKR de facto leader, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

In a press conference today at PKR Stampin, Secretary of State PKR, Abang Zulkifli Abang Engkeh said Ling had accused Anwar of saying the word ‘revolt’ against the government which is not right as revolt means fighting with arms and weapons.

“I was with Anwar the whole of last visit and despite moving around, I have never heard of the word, revolt but rather he said, we should fight against BN corruption and cronyism,” said Zulkifli.

He called to Ling to apologize or he would just be another of those leaders who lied. “What we read about YB lying to PM, statement from Daud and Jerip showed that they are mostly liars. If they can lie to the PM, what more the people,” he added.

Zulkifli said Ling knows he is not going to win thus by saying that, he is trying to get some political mileage there. “I would not be surprise if SUPP lost all their seats this time,” said Zulkifli.

On another issue, Zulkifli said the Ministry of Social development to look into the infrastructure of the Youth Development Centre in Santubong meant for vocational studies.

He said he was there a week ago and appalled to see that there was hardly any facilities and the place is in a sham.

Zulkifli said he was sending a friend’s son and was told later that the students did not have equipments to learn as there was lack of fund. He lamented that he was also told by the school staff there that there was no money to maintain the place.

“So is the Boy’s Scout quarters in Matang. The place is in dilapidated situation. How to expect the youth to be interested in healthy activities when there is lack of maintenance. Where is the money supposed to be used for maintaining such facilities,” he asked.

Zulkifli also hit out at the government for not taking care of Bujang Taha who had bring honour to the state. He said the PKR had went to see Bujang and would help in anyway they could.

The state he said is not appreciative of good sport person and he hoped that they would do something to help him.
