Mahathir bullied PBS: Pairin



Kota Kinabalu:
Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) said it was bullied by the Umno-led Barisan
Nasional (BN) when Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed was Prime Minister.
Its President Datuk Seri Joseph
Pairin Kitingan said after attending the Rural Development Ministry
Hari Raya open house in Sembulan, Monday.
"If I were to look back, during the time of Dr Mahathir, of course we were bullied." He said the over the years, there
have a number of cases where people have raised the issue of a BN
component bullying its partners.
However, he said the most important is to sit down and discuss the issue in a roundtable meeting in the spirit of the BN. He also said that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had commented on the issue recently. Abdullah said that Umno had never
bullied its partners in the BN and blamed the opposition parties for
coming up with such an accusation to deny the people's support for the
ruling coalition.
He said that if Umno had bullied
its partners, other component parties would have left the BN a long
time ago. PBS left the BN in 1990 and rejoined the coalition a decade
later.
Meanwhile, Pairin said MCA was
only thinking of itself when it proposed two deputy chairman posts in
Barisan Nasional (BN) with one of them filled by an MCA leader.
He said since the issue was brought up in the open, it meant that the MCA is using the subject as a political tool. While the proposal is not an
urgent issue, he felt other parties might demand similar recognition
should the extra BN deputy chairman post be created.
"If you create an extra (post), why not another one…what about Sabah and Sarawak," he said. He was asked to comment on a
statement by former MCA Youth chief, Datuk Liow Tiong Lai at the MCA
Youth delegates conference in Kuala Lumpur recently.
Liow had said that the extra post
is necessary to reflect the position, importance and representation of
all the component parties.
Pairin, who is Deputy Chief
Minister cum Rural Development Minister, however said in the 50 years
the BN has been operating, the system of one Chairman and one Deputy
Chairman has been working very well.
Nevertheless, he said that such
suggestion should be presented in a more formal manner through a
working paper for consideration and discussion within the BN roundtable
meeting.
However, he stressed that more
pressing and important issues such as the implementation of various
promises to complete unfinished development programmes should be given
more priority.
"We all ought to try and be
level-headed and to ensure that we do not bring ourselves and the
country into a situation where we would find ourselves in difficulty to
cope," he said.
He said that political parties
which intend to be champions for the people would only make things
worse if they terlanjur kata (go overboard in their statement).
"In the BN spirit, we all ought to sit down together and talk in a roundtable…this is a very sensible way. "We must not fall into the trap
of getting our emotion all worked up to the extent that we cannot think
rationally," he said.
Pairin said that in all they do,
they must think in the context of what is good for the country in
general. He expressed hope that political leaders would help bring
about a more sober situation to that the family spirit of the BN could
be maintained.
Personally, he said that
irrespective of whether an extra post for deputy chairman is created,
the most important is power sharing.
"It's all a question of equitable sharing, fairness and justice and feeling of a win-win situation," he said. He said by establishing another
post, the government would have to fork out extra money when they are
supposed to be prudent during the economically challenging period.
Also present were his assistant ministers Datuk Sairin Karno and Datuk Ghulam Haidar Khan Bahadar.
