Entulu: No ‘patching up’ to do, PRS and SPDP never at loggerheads

SIBU: PRS and SPDP do not have to do any ‘patching up’ as they were never at loggerheads in the first place, said PRS deputy president Datuk Joseph Entulu.
“As far as the word ‘patching up’ is concerned, it doesn’t exist,” he said.
On the spat with Wong Judat, he said: “There is no quarrel between PRS and SPDP. It’s just that Wong Judat is not happy about something (delivery system) which he doesn’t fully understand.
“He does not agree with Datuk Joseph Salang’s handling of a road project issue, but what Datuk Salang got was something better for that area,” he told The Borneo Post.
Entulu, who is Selangau MP and Deputy Minister of Rural and Regional Development, was responding to a question whether the recent development involving Wong’s insistence to challenge Salang in Julau this parliamentary election would cause a rift between the two parties.
Entulu insisted that there was no quarrel between Salang and Wong because he (Salang) had neither said nor done anything wrong.
“The only person who is not happy is Wong Judat.”
Last Friday, Wong, who is Meluan assemblyman, was quoted as saying he would resign from SPDP and join SWP to contest against Salang if the latter was re-nominated to defend Julau seat.
Entulu said Wong’s action was against BN’s spirit of comradeship.
He was also unfazed about PKR mounting a challenge against him in the constituency.
Recently, PKR Sibu division chairman Simon Tiong confirmed that they would put up a candidate there, but fell short of saying who.
SWP had also expressed keenness to contest in Selangau constituency.
“The more the merrier; I hope more people will come up; more candidates; more parties,” Entulu said.
He expected a three-cornered fight there at the very least.
On independent candidates jumping into the bandwagon, he said thus far, he had not heard of any.
