"He did it because he wanted Sarawakians, especially the Dayaks, to progress in terms of their education and development.“Yesterday (Thursday), I saw on the airlines’ online booking website that the fare was high at RM2,008 before it went down to RM1,593 today, but it is still expensive for a civil servant,” she said Friday.So, he fought with all his heart to ensure that the formation was well-supported and accepted by all Sarawakians.".“This is quite a known circumstance...ADVERTISEMENT “This issue has been around for at least the past 10 years without any concrete solution, so the issue crops up now and then.Share your thoughts with us via TRP’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
of course, along the way too, he had always said that he wanted a united Malaysia, a country that we can be proud of although we have differences in many areas, as a result of the formation,” he said when appearing as a special guest to share stories about the country’s founding fathers in conjunction with the Merdeka Special programme at Tugu Negara here Sunday (Sept 4).Nanta said among all of Tun Jugah’s grandchildren, he was the only one involved in politics, adding that he will try his best to continue his grandfather’s legacy as he believes there is always room for improvement in building a better Malaysia.“Earlier this year, the same issue of air fares from Kuala Lumpur to Sabah and Sarawak was hotly debated and after the Government’s intervention, there was a sharp price drop and we hope the Government can do the same in the interest of travellers from Labuan,” he added."From the beginning of the formation of Malaysia, my grandfather's famous quote was ‘Anang Sarawak tok baka tebu, manis di pun tang tabar ba ujung’ which means do not simply let Sarawak or Malaysia become like sugarcane, sweet in the beginning but less tasty as it grows."I do not want Malaysia to become like that.* Do you have access to the Daily Express e-paper and online exclusive news?
