KUCHING: The Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak faction led by Datuk Dr James Masing is consolidating its power base by setting up service centres statewide. 

Half of the proposed 22 centres were now operational, said the former information chief. 

Dr Masing said the centres, which would give services to party members, were located in Siburan, Serian, Roban, Saratok, Betong, Meradong, Sarikei, Pakan, Meluan, Sibu and Song.  

“A membership drive has started with the opening of these centres,” added Dr Masing, who chaired his group’s supreme council meeting here on Thursday evening. 

Also state Social Development and Urbanisation Minister, Dr Masing said the group would compile a new membership database. 

He said his group had decided to move on with its grassroots work while awaiting a decision from the Registrar of Societies on the leadership dispute with the rival faction headed by Datuk Daniel Tajem. 

Dr Masing denied that there had been any “peace” talks between his and Tajem’s groups.
