Adenan: Guan Eng's meddling in Sarawak affairs nothing new

KUCHING - Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem remains unfazed by remarks from DAP leaders calling for Sarawak Barisan Nasional to abandon the ruling coalition if the state’s demand for greater authority could isn't met by the Federal government.

Adenan, who is also Sarawak BN chairman and Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) president, said there is nothing new in the DAP leaders' meddling with Sarawak affairs.

 “That is their opinion, which is always contrary to ours. Nothing new,” he told reporters yesterday.

He was referring to a statement made by DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, who had urged for a deadline to be set for the Federal government to grant greater autonomy for the state.

During a DAP convention in Sibu recently, Lim had also asked Adenan and Sarawak BN to pull out of the ruling coalition if the Federal government refused to grant demands from the state.

Earlier today, PBB Youth vice-chief Ripin Lamat said the Penang Chief Minister was desperate to divert the people's attention from issues affecting his state, leading to Lim having to interfere in Sarawak matters.

Lim’s statement had also earned the wrath of PBB Supreme Council member Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, who had chastised the DAP leader for being "arrogant."
