The second day of the First Meeting of the Second Term of the 17th State Assembly Hall Sitting yesterday morning went "chaos" for a while after Chong Chieng Jen (DAP-Kota Sentosa) intentionally angered representatives Barisan Nasional (BN) to question the difference in tariff rates high among domestic consumers and commercial users.

Their antics by the opposition representatives seems mocking the government 's efforts over the years by manupulating the real facts to people on claimings that people who have to deliver subsidies to the industry players in their operations.

Criticizing Chong's argument, Dr Annuar Rapaee (BN-Nangka)  doesn't show any sign of "love" for Chong at all, emphasized that the opposition's claims is so far from the truth because the government is always fair to the people and industry players.

He also blasted Chong for his statements; "cheap electricty tariff subsidised by the people of Sarawak" was the main factor of foreign investors to invest in the Sarawak Corridor Of Renewal Energy (SCORE).

Annuar, who is also the member of the Sarawak Barisan Nasional Backbencher Club (BNBBC) was rebutting Chong's debate during after the first reading of the Government bills regarding on the amendment of the Regional Corridors Development Authorities Ordinance (RECODA).

He said the total foreign investment reached a billion ringgit, especially involving the development of the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) so far clearly shows investor confidence to Sarawak. 

"Wait-wait..please don't interrupt me..I have the floor are not the Minister yet so please sit down and don't interrupt," he sarcastically blasted back the same words used by Chong on some of the other BN representative before as Chong seemingly tried to answer him back.

"As low any electricity tariff offered by any country if there is no political stability even make no sense and we are fortunate because we enjoy Bumi Kenyalang's peace and political stability that allows foreign investors interested in what we offer, other sources of energy," he said. 

He pointed out that the main factor of the foreign investors coming into Sarawak and invested billions of ringgit is because of the present political stability that we Sarawakians enjoy in this State.

Annuar then sarcastically reminded Chong that should the Bersih rally (co-organised by the opposition) in West Malaysia recently occurred here in Sarawak, they would then probally won't make their investments.

The Supplementary Supply (2011), 2012 to amend the RECODA, 2006 Bill was earlier read by Second Minister for Resource Planning and Environment Datuk Haji Awang Tengah Ali Hassan.

Prior to this, Chong, who is also Member of Parliament for Bandar Kuching is also claimed that domestic consumers have to pay five times iatu 30 cents per kilowatt compared to 6 cents per kilowatt imposed on commercial users by Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB).
