Interior Bloggers Use Blogs As a Platform To Instill Hatred Against The Government.

>> Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Keningau: Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) President Tan Sri Joseph Kurup criticised certain bloggers who continue to use the blogs as a platform to instil hatred against the Government.

He said it was saddening that some of these bloggers were educated and had received assistance from the Government, including scholarship for further studies.

"For example, there are blogs in the interior areas that accuse the Government of not bringing development to the people, but at the same time, the bloggers are enjoying the facilities and infrastructure provided by the Government.

"In fact, some of them are in government service. These people are ungrateful. Their intention is merely to instil hatred and create enmity between the people and government," he said at a function in Kampong Bombay, here, Monday.

Kurup, who is also the Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment, said the blogs should be utilised to create a community of quality through constructive writing.

Meanwhile, PBRS Vice-President, Cyril Yansalang, proposed that the Kaamatan Festival celebrations at the State and Federal level be held simultaneously on May 31 next year.

He said the move would not only raise the status of the Pesta Kaamatan as a prestigious celebration but would also reduce the cost of organising it.

Usually, the climax of the Kaamatan Festival at the State-level would be held for two days on May 30 and 31 at the Dewan KDCA each year.

"It will be better if the State-level celebration next year is held on May 30 and the national-level on May 31 at the same venue," he said here.

Welcoming the decision of the Federal Government through the Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture to hold the national-level Kaamatan Festival at Padang Merdeka, near here, on June 7 with the cooperation of the State Government, Yansalang said it reflected the commitment and seriousness of the Government to place the Kaamatan Festival as a major cultural festival in the country.

In responding to what Tan sri Datuk Joseph Kurup statements regarding Interior bloggers use blogs as a platform to instill hatred against the government, as what has been published at the Daily Express dated on 01/06/2009 is really touching some of the Interior bloggers.

I think he has to understand that some bloggers has criticised only the respective leaders performance, at his own constituency during his or her tenure as assembleymen and not trying to hatred the government. I hope that before making any negative statements towards those Interior bloggers, I would suggests that every so call the Wakil Rakyat has to accept comments from other people, if that particular leaders wants to continue to serve to the people. Because the people were giving the honour to that particular leader to be their representative to voice out peoples social and economics matters. I think my point of views are clearly and not to means of hatred government.
