Lajim tells sabahans to give USA a chance
He said parties under the USA umbrella will continue to pursue the relevant parties so that the rights of the people of Sabah are defended according to the Malaysia Agreement 1963.
"When I decided to set up a political party, definitely one of its objectives was to fight and defend Sabah`s right which the Federal Government has forgotten.
"Therefore, together with the leadership of the party, we chose USA as a platform to fight together with other component parties who have the same mission and vision," he said.
Lajim said this when speaking at the Harapan Rakyat Putatan Hari Raya Open House here, Monday.
Also present were Lajim`s wife Datin Seri Normilah Siong, Harapan Rakyat Putatan Chief Engelbert Jekoney, Harapan Rakyat Wanita Chief Ester Otion and Harapan Rakyat Wanita Muda Chief Dayang Aezzy Liman.
Lajim, who is Klias Assembyman, also called on the people to rise and ensure parties under USA will suceed in forming the goverment in the 14th General Election.
"Other than that, the people must also help the coalition to ensure the current Federal Government is replaced and of course, Sabah will be the contributors to the victory in the parliamentary level.
"If a new Federal Government is elected then we will be able to reduce the people cost of living which continue to rise now," he said.
In the meantime, Lajim said Harapan Rakyat together with USA wants equality between Sabah and the penisula.
"We can clearly see, especially in terms of existing development, where the rate of development there far exceeds Sabah.
"Hence. the people must give us the opportunity to govern the state because we will ensure the people will be defended and equality will be carried out," he said.
