Sarawak's Assistant Public Health Minister Dr Jerip Susil had warned Bidayuh voters to beware of DAP's 'Impian Sarawak' campaign as outlined in a news item entitled 'Bidayuh warned to be wary of DAP's 'Impian Sarawak' campaign'.
Jerip seems to be ignorant about the 'Impian Sarawak' programme. Firstly, Jerip is not aware that this is NOT a 'campaign'. It is actually a rural outreach programme to give basic amenities to the rural people who have been neglected the past decades or since we formed Malaysia 50 years ago. Secondly, Jerip is wrong to say that the funds for the 'Impian Sarawak' projects are from Selangor. The funds for the projects are NOT funded by the state of Selangor which is ruled by Pakatan Rakyat. The funds were raised in Selangor through a fund-raising programme and the funds were contributed by Malaysians from all corners of Malaysia, including Sarawak and Sabah. Jerip should be aware that after 50 years of self-rule and with so much revenue generated from our natural resources all people, especially the rural poor in Sarawak and Sabah, should be provided with basic infrastructure and necessities like clean water supply. Years ago the rural people enjoyed clean water from nearby streams, but in the past few decades the rivers and streams near their villages are polluted due to logging and plantation. One source of clean water is from mountain streams from nearby hills and mountains. Is Jerip not aware that hundreds of rural villages do not have clean water? Indeed the government implement gravity feed water supply all these years but the phase of implementation has been very slow such that in 50 years they are still many without clean water. I would like to pose a question to Jerip.
The others are Sarawak Industrial Development Assistant Minister Julaihi Narawi,Sarawak Public Health Assistant Minister Dr Jerip Susil, Sarawak Housing Assistant Minister Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, First Division Infantry commander Maj-Gen Datuk Mohd Zaki Mokhtar, Bina Puri Construction Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk Henry Tee Hock Hin and Datuk Ismail Hashim.
Bengoh assemblyman Dr Jerip Susil and his Tasik Biru counterpart Peter Nansian were not in the list of Bidayuh candidates announced by Adenan Satem because the state BN chairman respects the claims of Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP) and Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) over the two seats.
In a way, Jerip is right about Adenan not making any decision on their candidacy because they are not PBB members. Indeed Adenan decided not to because Jerip is a member of United People's Party (UPP and Nansian, a member of Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak (Teras), both of which are not members of BN. Jerip would be lying if he said he was not disappointed that his candidacy did not get Adenan's aye now, which would be just right. It is for this reason that Adenan told Jerip and Nansian to continue to serve the people. Now, with Adenan clearly having second thoughts about Jerip and Nansian, it's the space that SUPP and SPDP need to push ahead with their ground work. Apparently, Adenan's reluctance in naming Jerip is good enough hint for the Bengoh constituent to decide where to place their support. They have chosen SUPP over UPP.
Meanwhile, Bengoh State Assemblyman Dr Jerip Susil said many villagers could not continue with the relocation process because the state government's allocation for the relocation has yet to be channeled to the district office.
The SUPP members includes Bengoh assemblyman Dr Jerip Susil, Dr Johnical Rayong (Engkilili), Ranum Mina (Opar).
