Sabah BN alone has pledged hundreds of campaigners for Permatang Pauh.
Umno Sabah's various wings and BN component parties like PBS are keen to impress federal leaders, Yong said.
For many Umno divisional delegates, a trip to Permatang Pauh is a joy trip associated with the on-going party divisional election, he suggested. The cost of travel, accommodation, food and actual campaigning overall would be sizeable.
Yong queries where the money will come from. He feels it is less likely from the national BN coffers which is near bankrupt as indicated by their failure to settle the RM218 million owing for 2004's campaign material.
"It remains to be seen how the BN will settle the election debts of the March 2008 general election. And now the BN has to face their most-feared opponent in a by-election.
"We call on the Sabah government leaders not to allow Sabah to be the milking cow for the BN election debts of RM218 million and for the Permatang Pauh by-election."
SAPP implored Sabah Umno and other BN leaders to consider their conscience in this matter.
