Jam the frequency of Radio Free SarawakJanuary 21st, 2013 at 15:10
Written by: Dr. John Brian Anthony
It is so funny that an example was given by BN leaders that during the war with Communist and during Confrontation the army interfere with the radio broadcast of the enemy. Now, the BN leaders see Radio Free Sarawak as the radio that belong to the enemy. Who are these people that we have elected? Are the elected leaders becoming the enemy of the people or are the leaders making enemy of the people.
What is truth?
Truth is something that is factual and can be proven. Can I prove to you that BN did not deliver on many of their promises of development to the people of Sarawak? Of course I could. Could I prove that the money allocated under Sarawak development plan has been misdirected from the original intention? Yes i could. Could I prove that the Ministers in Sarawak are involved in corruption? Yes I could and that is fact.
The ordinary people of Sarawak travel on bad and sub standard road. A large percentage of the people of Sarawak are living under poverty line. A large acreage of NCR land has been sold by the government to private enterprise. Can I prove all these FACT. Of course I could and that is what exactly Radio Free Sarawak is doing. RFS is only a tool or platform for the people to talk about their problems. If BN is not an arrogant and selfish body of politicians they should take note of what is said by the people through RFS and correct their own mistakes.
Now BN leaders are picking quarrel with the people
BN leaders do not like to hear the truth of their doing. They cannot accept the harsh ways and words the people are using to give them the feedback. YBs must remember that ordinary people are not bound by the YB code of “honorable members”. It is an open public forum. But why are the BN YBs so proud and insistence of the people”s respect if they could not earn it. The YBs seemed to think that they are “small kings” and so must be treated like wise.
The BN YBs are failing in their duties to develop the state in a genuine manner. The YBs always look for opportunities to make easy money which could be associated to corrupt practice quite easily. The internet are powerful technology and tools – how could the leaders stop that?. All equipment to create more effective communication are available today. Instead of trying to jam the air waves why not BN leaders change their ways by running this country according to good governance. Stop corruption among the YBs for a start.
What has happened to the log jam report of the Batang Rejang? Has that been jammed by the BN Government too. I bet, it has. We never got to find the truth and learn from it. We are given information that are full of lies. Which intelligent person would like to listen to illogical reasoning and pronounced as gospel truth through the Government radio.
This Government is not competent and has very poor record of managing the country with good governance. After 50 years of BN Government do we have the right to change this Government? Of course we do and so we must UBAH.
Change WE Must.
