1. Accusations that the Barisan Nasional ( BN) government marginalised certain races in its development policy are not true and unfair on the state BN government.
DIG: The government must be transparent by publishing the fact on the allegation to prove its sincerity and honesty. A mere statement in today’s world is hard to believe without hard evidence which we find hard to accept. That’s why in today’s world, transparency is being pursued as the standard procedure to guarantee that truth prevails. There is no necessity for the Minister to deny without facts. The fact that we have points to the contrary. We have quoted the management of Yayasan Sarawak as a case in point, where Dayak are marginalized. Another case that we wish to highlight and to which the Minister’s should pay attention is Land Custody and Development Authority (LCDA), a state statutory body set up in 1981 with the stated objective to be the catalyst in land development. If you look into the management line-up of LCDA as published in its website, you will see that ALL Senior Managers are from one ethnic group. With this kind of exclusiveness, we could have used a stronger word other than marginalization. However, we chose not to, out of respect for the Chief Minister whom we believe is fair minded and inclusive.
