Sarawak Barisan Nasional (BN) Back-Benchers Club (BBC) Chairman Abdullah Haji Saidol said that they are ready to "argue" whatever the opposition would raise-up during the sitting.
"I believe that the oppositions are lack ideas which they would raise-up during this sitting except for the old irrelevant issues," said Abdullah, who is also Semop State Assemblyman to reporters.
Abdullah, who is also the Chief Political Secretary to Chief Minister Pehin Seri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud disclosed this after attending the official opening of the the First Meeting of the Second Term of the 17th State Assembly Hall Sitting ceremony yesterday morning.
"On behalf on the BN BBC, I would l;ike to say that we are prepared to face whatever the opposition will bring up, we have to stratergised our turf, we have done a lot of research, updating ourselves with all the current issues so we are fully prepared."
"In addition, we have to be prepared with coming general election, we have to be more viligant," he said.
When asked what will the issus expected to brought up by the oppositions, Abdullah disclosed that the opposition probally wil bring-up "old irrevelant" issues such as lands, environment-related matter that they are all "re-cycled" matters.
"Through the opposition's blogs, it seems that they don't have any "real" issues to bright except recyling the old issues and I believed that are very desprate of new issues and actually being "caught" by their own "recent antics" such as the Bersih 3.0 gathering which are not "people-friendly" and have to answer what they have "done" lately."
Abdullah said the opposition should actually bring the issue relating to their own respective constituencies, helping the people..what they have done (in their own respective constituencies) since the last election.
"We would also highlight why Prime Minister Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak should be given the mandate once again to lead the government," he added.
As the government back-benchers chairman, Abdullah revealed that one of the issue he would brought-up at this sitting is the Bersih gathering which was co-orgainsed by the opposition recently at Dataran Merdeka.
"All the BN BBC members had consensus that such culture shown during the Bersih gathering will never be practised here..we are very firm on that," pointed Abdullah adding that they hope the police would take stern action on those who had broken any laws.
