DAP outshone by Adenan

The Sarawak DAP which often portrays itself as fierce is becoming increasingly frightened by the growing influence of Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem, said veteran Barisan Nasional leader Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing.

Tiong, who is Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) president, said that DAP state leaders were worried that Adenan was taking over the spotlight from them.

“Adenan has managed to secure 13 important points of mutual agreement with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak for greater autonomy for Sarawak.

“This latest success by Adenan is making the Sarawak DAP leaders worried. That is why its chairman Chong Chien Jen has been launching all sorts of attacks to belittle Adenan,” he said.

He also claimed that Sarawak DAP leaders were no longer getting the public attention they craved for.

“They are being outshone by Adenan. So they are getting desperate and that is why they are resorting to claiming credit to what the CM is doing,” he said.

All these tactics, he said, reflected the insecurity within Sarawak DAP due to the chief minister’s growing influence.

Tiong, who is Bintulu MP and the Prime Minister’s special envoy to South Korea, Japan and Taiwan, said that DAP leaders would be stepping up their attacks against Adenan at every given opportunity as the state election draws near.

He urged Sarawakians to give a bigger mandate to Adenan so that the Sarawak state government would have added strength to fight for greater recognition of its rights within Malaysia.
