SUPP Kuching Branch’s signature campaign against the implementation of Goods and Services Tax (GST) is mere political stunt aimed at deceiving the people.
When the GST Act was tabled, SUPP MP cum cabinet minister Richard Riot supports the Bill. Thereafter, its party chairman also supports the implementation of GST. He even claimed that GST is good for the country because it can get more revenue for the Government to implement more projects.
As late as January, 2015, SUPP’s woman wing has also criticise DAP for opposing GST.
All the records from the past till today, SUPP has been supporting the implementation of GST. Suddenly, 2 days ago, its Kuching Branch launched a signature campaign to oppose GST.
Is this not political stunt or some form of play-acting by the SUPP Kuching Branch?
There is no question that a large majority of Sarawakian oppose to the implementation of GST. You don’t need a signature campaign to verify this.
The problem is, the BN Government ignores the wishes of the people and goes ahead with the implementation of GST. The simple reason being that, the BN leaders and cronies need the extra money to sustain their corruption.
Therefore, before SUPP Kuching Branch even starts to collect signatures to oppose GST, it should get its leaders, Chairman and Member of Parliament and ADUNs to state their position publicly.
We do not want a situation where, on the one hand, SUPP oppose the implementation of GST, but when faced with Najib and Adenan, its leader praises and supports GST.
Do not treat the people as fools and think that the people can be so easily deceived.
