KENINGAU – Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Joseph Kurup (pic) has labelled the DAP party as ‘king of manipulators’ that is scary and the people should stay away from it.
He said the party leaders were always thinking of finding the weaknesses of other people unlike the Barisan Nasional leadership that always looked for ways of prospering the people.
For example, he said, the DAP accused him and the BN in the Pensiangan constituency of turning the project to repair the homes of the abject poor as fishing for votes.
“This is totally untrue and all the accusations by the DAP are like fishing in troubled waters purely for their own political survival,” he told reporters after observing the affected houses in Kampung Mapila, Kuala Biah, Mampulut and Ansip, here today.
Kurup said the unfounded allegations hurled by the DAP against the BN were malicious, dirty and aimed to cause confusion and hatred among the people against the BN government led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
“I wish to clarify to you (the DAP) that the houses under the repair programme which you claim as not completed, and done in a slip-shod manner were actually in the construction process,” he said.
He conceded that there were several houses whose completion were delayed because the builders were waiting for the building materials besides the distance factor as well as the uncertain weather in the interior areas lately.
