KOTA KINABALU: – Sabah Gerakan Youth today lauded Sabah DAP’s proposal for a special committee comprising representatives of the ruling government and the opposition be set up to formulate a master plan for Sabah towards becoming a developed state by 2020.
Its chief, Cleyrance Lee Chen Peng, said although they never expected the proposal to come from DAP, it still deserved to be taken into consideration.
Taking the DAP’s call as something positive, Lee said this was because the party or any opposition parties in Sabah had never announced any agenda or concrete plan to develop the state.
“I hereby welcome the proposal (to set up the committee) and see it as a positive development which inadvertently reflects a sharp turnaround by DAP in its political stand,” he said in a statement here today.
Lee said this in response to the proposal made by Sri Tanjung assemblyman Chan Foong Hin of DAP, which was seconded by Sandakan Member of Parliament Stephan Wong, also of DAP, as published in local newspapers recently.
“I have no objection against the proposal and if DAP is serious in helping in the state’s transformation process, I think this is a good start,” he added.- BERNAMA
