Bangkit 2.0 to hand memo to opposition


KOTA KINABALU: Bela Tanah Rakyat Sabah or Tabah president Hisammuddin Sulaiman yesterday said they would be organising a peaceful gathering on April 28 at Padang Merdeka here.

During the gathering which is named “Himpunan Rakyat Sabah Bangkit Pertahan Tanah Adat or Bangkit 2.0”, Tabah will be handing over a memorandum on land issues in Sabah to an opposition leader.

“We have yet to identify who the opposition leader will be although we will try our best to get Pakatan Rakyat (PR) chief Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to receive the memorandum on land issues in Sabah which has been the bane of natives in the state,” he told a press conference yesterday.

According to Hisammuddin, Tabah is handing over the memorandum to the opposition because the state Barisan Nasional (BN) government is not interested to find out the problems listed in the document.
