Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem said Sarawak will be developed 'the Sarawakian way' without interference from people or quarters from outside the state. Adenan also said he would not bow down to critics who opposed his way of steering the state to greater heights.
Speaking at the launch of this year's Sejiwa, Senada programme here today, Adenan said the fate of Sarawak lies in its own hands.
"Rest assured, the fate of our state is controlled by Sarawakians. Who knows Sarawak better than the Sarawakians themselves.
"I don't know (what is needed by the people) in Negri Sembilan, Johor or other states. Nevertheless, I know what is needed in Sarawak.
"We know Sarawak much better (than any outsiders) because this is our fate," said Adenan in his speech to a loud applause from more than 30,000 crowds attending the event. - NST
