Don't threaten 'separatists', Ghapur tells BN gov't

A BN MP today told Putrajaya not to send ministers to Sabah to threaten its people who are sympathetic to a movement calling for the state's secession from the Malaysian federation.

Abdul Ghapur Salleh (BN-Kalabakan) said instead, the government should look at their grouses which led them to advocate such a cause.

"We cannot take them likely because they are made up of intellectuals. Perhaps they think there are some things Sabah are not getting, that Sabah and Sarawak are not getting its fair share.

"We see ministers coming here, and making threats to take action against them. This is the old way. We are developed now, we don't want threats.

"We want the federal government to listen to what is their problem, do not just assume everything they say is wrong," said the vocal lawmaker.
