At the same event, Datuk Seri Najib said it was not the opposition but BN, led by Tan Sri Adenan Satem, that championed the Native Customary Right land issue in Sarawak.

He added it was the Sarawak chief minister who had taken concrete action to resolve the issue for the good of the people in the state.

The prime minister also said the federal government approved RM100 million for a perimeter survey to be carried out on NCR land in Sarawak to be given to the natives.

Also present at the event was Ba'kelalan BN candidate Willie Liau.
