Batu Kitang State Assemblyman, Lo Khere Chiang said it is ironical that Goods and Service tax (GST) which was used as a propaganda during the last General election maybe making a sneaky come-back by the Pakatan Harapan government.

“Therefore, it is also of great amusement to us when Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad announced that he does not mind bringing back GST. He stated that the government was willing to study calls to re-introduce GST if this is what the people wanted. What is amazing is that he is now throwing it back to the people claiming that they want GST. It is really an insult to all of us. From the feedback I got from the public, they were disgusted and angry that they were being tricked again and again by PH government for not fulfilling their manifesto but bringing back GST which they, PH earlier on claimed it to be the ‘devil’ of Barisan Nasional government. They have stated that SST have a positive impact to save the people from the evil GST. So why now the U-turn? Is SST not so good now as they claimed to be?” he asked.

Stating that if t were not such a serious matter, it is almost laughable that PH is now slapping their own face and called the return of GST a Master of U turn.

He said when they were the Opposition, they shouted and rave at the BN way of governing. Now that they themselves are in it, they can feel the pains of what the BN government was trying to do. “It is the same with the Gabungan Parti Sarawak(GPS). We are trying out best here to ran Sarawak but all we got was their criticism and comtempt. Our Chief Minister and the ministers are doing their best to help Sarawakians but we were instead being ridiculed for our people-friendly policies. After PH government took over, it appeared that investors are avoiding us and the economy has taken a drastic downturn. That is why the people are suffering. Many business are closing down and many ordinary people are doing two to three jobs just to survive. So what is PH doing to help the people? Are they so blind by the new power that they fail to see the sufferings or they pretend not to see? Our Sarawakians must not be fooled by them to vote for them in the next State election. We are here to expose their mismanagement of the country and our Rakyat should be smart enough to know how they have failed in governing this country,” he said.

Lo said for the last one and half year result of PH being in power has been clearly witnessed by the people how much they have failed. Instead of betraying the people by not fulfilling the manifesto, the children are subjected to ridiculous policies from the Education Ministry like making Khat a compulsory subject. There was no study or consensus with the Educationist but a ruling made by an Education Minister who favors shoes or swimming or food to real academic issues. The making of Unified Examination Certificate(UEC) to be accepted by the government which is one of the manifesto has long been forgotten. I can clearly remember the Education minister saying they need a five year study on it. What about Khat, did they study the issue before they even formed the government?

“I think this is time the people should be wise to reject the PH. We should work with GPS for the betterment of all Sarawakians. We should work towards getting our oil and gas autonomy back and how to prevent them from ruining our Sarawak,” he added.
