2016 Feb 14 - SAPP reiterates call to object 1.5m Bangladeshi workers

SAPP reiterates call to object 1.5m Bangladeshi workers

KOTA KINABALU, February 14, 2016: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) reiterates its stand in insisting that none of the 1.5 million Bangladeshi workers be allowed into Sabah and that the PTI problems plaguing the State be resolved urgently.

The call made by Edward Dagul, SAPP Deputy President, in a press statement yesterday, was in response to the recent comments by the Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in defending the government’s decision to recruit 1.5 million workers from Bangladesh.

Further describing the move as unfathomable to point of ridiculous, Edward points out that there are so many factors that needs due consideration before even contemplating such a move.

“We are talking about 1.5 million people, not a mere 1,500 workers. For starters, can they speak Bahasa Melayu or English? The societal and cultural difference between Bangladeshis and us are too many. I fear that their vast presence may negatively impact our already seemingly fragile Malaysian social fabric.”

“If the decision to bring these Bangladeshi workers in was to ‘meet the request of various industrial sectors’, it would have been wise to only bring the ‘right horse for the right course’. It is preposterous to lump demand from the plantation, manufacturing, construction sector and say that only workers from Bangladesh can do all these jobs. Are there even palm oil plantations in Bangladesh?” Edward further inquired.

“We have not yet resolved the (PTI) illegal immigrant problem in Sabah and there is no need to drag us into with another potential problem.”

“What has happened to the RCI on the illegal immigrant problem in Sabah`s working committee report? How much longer do Sabahans have to wait? The longer Sabahans are made to wait, the longer we are denied of the right to feel secure in our own home. As a matter of Sabah priority, resolve the PTI issue in Sabah”, concluded Edward.
