HAPPY: Chin is happy with the support of the Chinese community in the state leading to the general election.
NEW YEAR WISH: Taib looks forward to the Chinese community consolidating among themselves.
KUCHING: Solidarity remains the key issue for the Chinese community here if they still want to contribute to the development of the state and country.
When met at SUPP Chinese New Year open house here on Sunday, Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud said he was looking forward to see more initiatives by the community to strengthen their unity.
“I wish the Chinese community a happy new year and I also look forward to the community taking the initiative to strengthen unity so that they can continue to bring development to the country,” he told reporters at the open house held at the party headquarters.
Taib was accompanied to the open house by his deputy Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Alfred Jabu, SPDP president Tan Sri William Mawan, PBB deputy president Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg, senior vice-president Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan and other state dignitaries. Also present was Puan Sri Ragad Kurdi.
The chief minister and entourage were welcomed by SUPP president Datuk Seri Peter Chin Fah Kui, deputy president Datuk Richard Riot and honorary president Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan who is former deputy chief minister.
Chin who is also Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water, believed the presence of the chief minister and other top leadership at the open house was proof that unity and solidarity among the state Barisan Nasional (BN) was very much intact.
He was happy with the support of the Chinese community in the state leading to the general election.
“It is said that unity and support within SUPP is shaky but the presence of the chief minister and other BN top leadership at the open house proves that all is well.
“We will make use of this positive situation to face the upcoming general election,” he told reporters.
About 2,000 people of all races and from various walks of life attended the open house held from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
