Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud will only accept Sarawak PKR chief Baru Bian’s challenge to a public debate if there is a strong evidence the state government has grabbed native customary rights (NCR) lands from the owners.

“He will have to submit the proof first before I can accept the challenge on the debate with the NCR land as the topic," Taib said.
