Hanifah Aman is damned right. So far we heard nothing from the “seven sons” of Sarawak who promised earlier this month to ask oral questions instead.
“When we voice the people’s aspirations, it does not mean that we oppose the government. When we use strong words, it does not mean that we want to switch political parties. “What we want to inform this House is that the people of Sabah did not switch camps like those in the five states in the peninsula,” he said when speaking during the debate on the motion of thanks for the royal address in the Dewan Rakyat.
However, he said, it was not wrong to switch parties or “vacate a bungalow and move in to a terrace house if we are not given sufficient room in the bungalow”.
“Let it be, even if it were a terrace house. We will all enjoy the same facilities. Even when we live in a bungalow, we still sleep by the toilet,” he said.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi earlier when he asked Anifah, who had declined the post of deputy transport minister, whether he agreed that it was pointless to move out of a bungalow, meaning the Barisan Nasional (BN), and move in to a terrace house, in reference to the opposition alliance.
