Bidayuh harus terus bersama BN : my <b>Sarawak</b> – News coverage <b>...</b>

Posted: 22 Apr 2012 06:28 PM PDT

Suasana politik sedia ada akan bertambah baik sekiranya BN terus kekal di tiga kerusi Parlimen majoriti kaum Bidayuh, kata Manyin

KUCHING: Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan Dato Sri Michael Manyin berkata, suasana politik sedia ada akan bertambah baik sekiranya Barisan Nasional (BN) kekal di tiga kerusi Parlimen majoriti kaum Bidayuh pada Pilihan Raya Umum (PRU) akan datang.

Katanya, ia merujuk kepada ketiga-tiga kerusi Parlimen Mas Gading, Mambong dan Serian serta enam lagi kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri yang sudah ditawan BN sebelum ini.

Merujuk kepada pemimpin kaum Bidayuh, kini mereka mempunyai dua timbalan menteri di peringkat persekutuan serta seorang menteri penuh, dua menteri muda dan timbalan speaker di peringkat negeri.

Manyin menegaskan, sekiranya salah satu daripada tiga kerusi Parlimen terbabit jatuh kepada pihak pembangkang, 'status quo' jawatan bagi kaum Bidayuh dalam kerajaan tidak akan dikekalkan.

"Kita kaum Bidayuh tidak mempunyai pilihan. Semua enam kerusi untuk pilihan raya negeri yang lalu dimenangi BN, maka tiga kerusi Parlimen kawasan Bidayuh ini juga mesti kekal bersama BN dalam pilihan raya akan datang," katanya.

Manyin yang juga ketua penasihat Persatuan Kebangsaan Dayak Bidayuh (DBNA) berkata demikian dalam Majlis Makan Malam 'Udung Bidayuh' (Forum Bidayuh) di Kampung Sinjok malam kelmarin.

Sebelum ini, majlis yang sama diadakan di Bau pada 27 Februari lalu, manakala siri ketiga dan terakhir akan diadakan di Serian pada 5 Mei depan.

Sementara itu, Manyin percaya pilihan raya akan datang akan dilangsungkan pada bulan Jun.

Beliau berkata 'Udung Bidayuh' dilakukan untuk tiga Ahli Parlimen, enam ADUN dan dua setiausaha politik ketua menteri untuk duduk bagi membincangkan isu-isu kebimbangan masyarakat Bidayuh.

Sejak penubuhannya pada 1997, 'Udung Bidayuh' berjaya mengurangkan pergeseran ketidaksefahaman di kalangan kaum Bidayuh dalam politik yang katanya cuma seramai 200,000 ahli dalam empat parti (PBB, SUPP, PRS dan SPDP) dalam komponen BN.

"Pernah sekali berlaku perselisihan faham antara ahli-ahli komponen BN dan ahli komponen yang lain tidak mahu membantu ahli komponen yang memegang kerusi," katanya.

Dalam hal yang berkaitan, Manyin turut menyatakan impiannya  untuk melihat kaum Bidayuh meruntuhkan perbezaan adat dan loghat bahasa masing-masing serta menerima antara satu sama lain selaras dengan semangat  1Bidayuh.

"Kita tidak bercakap mengenai perbezaan peribadi tetapi sebaliknya kita sama-sama memikirkan isu yang lebih besar mengenai kaum Bidayuh secara keseluruhan tanpa mengira jika orang itu adalah dari Jagoi, Singai, Lundu, Krokong, Singai, Padawan, Penrissen, Bukar atau Sadong.

"Suatu hari nanti, mana-mana pemimpin Bidayuh tidak kira dari bahagian mana pun boleh dicalonkan di mana-mana kawasan Bidayuh yang lain dan diterima oleh semua Bidayuh. Itulah impian saya.

"Jika impian itu direalisasikan, maka kita telah mencapai sasaran 1Bidayuh," katanya.

Turut menghadiri majlis itu adalah kesemua sembilan wakil rakyat kaum Bidayuh termasuk Ahli Parlimen Mas Gading Datuk Dr Tiki Lafe, Ahli Parlimen Mambong yang juga Timbalan Menteri Pelancongan Datuk James Dawos Mamit, Pengerusi Penganjur Temenggung Datu Stephen Jussem, Presiden DBNA Datu Ik Pahon Joyik dan pemimpin cawangan DBNA serta pemimpin-pemimpin masyarakat.

Stay with BN, Bidayuh community urged : my <b>Sarawak</b> – News <b>...</b>

Posted: 22 Apr 2012 03:03 PM PDT

UNITED WE STAND: Manyin (fourth left) leads the Bidayuh VIPs in giving the 'thumbs-up' during a photo call at the dinner.

KUCHING: The current 'best ever political situation' for the Bidayuh community can continue if Barisan Nasional wins in all the three Bidayuh-majority parliamentary seats in the coming general election.

Infrastructure Development and Communications Minister Dato Sri Michael Manyin, who said this, was referring to the present situation whereby the Bidayuhs now have two federal deputy ministers, a full minister, two assistant ministers and a deputy Speaker at the state level.

The three parliamentary seats are Mas Gading, Mambong and Serian. The six state seats are already under BN.

Manyin cautioned that even if one of the three parliamentary seats were to fall to the opposition, there was every likelihood that the status quo of posts for the community in the government would not be maintained.

"Today, even the opposition, they said this is the best time for Bidayuhs in politics. We have three MPs, and two of them are deputy ministers and one is chairman of the National Service Training Council.

"Is this not the best? Have you ever seen this before? No. So, if we want to maintain the status quo, we have no choice. All the six state seats are already won by BN. So, for the three parliament seats, we need to make sure the seats are going to stay with BN (in the coming election)," he said when officiating at the 'Udung Bidayuh' dinner at Kampung Sinjok near Siburan last Saturday.

The dinner was also attended by all the nine Bidayuh elected representatives, Dayak Bidayuh National Association (DBNA) president Datu Ik Pahon Joyik, DBNA branch leaders and community leaders. There were about 700 guests at the dinner held at the village's community hall.

Manyin, also DBNA chief advisor, said the 'Udung Bidayuh' or Bidayuh forum dinner at Sinjok was the second in the series of dinners to be organised in preparation for the coming election. The first one was in Bau last February 27, while the third and last one would be held in Serian on May 5. Manyin believed the election would be in June.

On the Udung Bidayuh, he said it was exclusively for the three MPs, six assemblymen and two political secretaries to the chief minister to sit down and discuss issues concerning the Bidayuh community.

Formed in 1997, he said the Udung Bidayuh had significantly reduced friction and politicking among the Bidayuhs, who despite their small population of 200,000 are members of all the four BN components namely PBB, SUPP, PRS and SPDP.

He mentioned that the friction was so bad at one time that the members of a BN component did not want to help another BN component.

On a related matter, Manyin also spoke of his dream to see that Bidayuhs tear down their regional and dialectical differences one day and accept each other in line with the '1Bidayuh' spirit he had always propagated.

"We don't talk of personal differences, regional differences, but we think of the bigger issue that is the Bidayuh community as a whole. It should not matter whether that person is from Jagoi, Singai, Lundu, Krokong, Singai, Padawan, Penrissen, Bukar or Sadong.

"One day, any Bidayuh, no matter from which region, can stand in any Bidayuh area and be accepted by the Bidayuh. That is my dream. Meaning that a person from Serian can stand as a candidate in Tasik Biru, Tasik Biru people can stand in Mambong, and likewise elsewhere.

"If that dream is realised, then we have achieved the 1Bidayuh target," he said. Earlier, during his speech, Manyin surprised everyone by calling Mas Gading MP Datuk Dr Tiki Lafe not a 'former MP but still a serving MP', in reference to his partyless status ever since his membership was terminated by SPDP.

Mambong MP and Deputy Minister of Tourism Datuk Dr James Dawos Mamit and organising chairman Temenggong Datu Stephen Jussem also spoke during the dinner themed 'Bipekat Ata Bake, Brekang Ata Remah' (United We Achieve A Lot, Divided We Achieve Nothing).
