Bashir, who addressed a public rally in celebration of harvest season in Gedaref state in eastern Sudan on Wednesday, vowed that next year would witness the defeat of the alliance of rebel groups, Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF), and restore peace in southern and western parts of the country.

“He who wanted to humiliate us would fail and he who wanted to defeat us must lick his elbow first”, he said, alluding to the statements by rebel leaders who refuse to negotiate separate peace deals in their respective regions.

Last month, the Sudanese defence minister, Abdel-Rahim Mohamed Hussein, announced the beginning of the summer military operations against the rebels in Darfur, South Kordofan, and Blue Nile.

On Friday, SAF claimed that it achieved a series of victories against the rebel SRF in Jebal areas in South Kordofan and drove its forces out of Abu Domoa, Kujoria, Al-Waliat, Shingil, Al-Karko, Kiga Al-Khail, Kaling, Al-Higair, Habail, Um Baraka, Higair Sinaina, Al-Rokeb, Al-Dhiainat, Ambir, Higair Yassen, and Al-Garsha.

Bashir affirmed that SAF is making victories in South Kordofan which will bring security, peace, and stability to the state.

He pointed that Sudan is targeted by foreign powers and called upon citizens not to listen to claims of those whom he described as saboteurs about injustice, marginalization, and poverty.

Bashir said that the government couldn’t meet all people’s demands but it would continue implementing development programs and plans, asking the Sudanese people to topple the government if it fails to achieve those programs.

The Sudanese president further said that Sudan is rich in terms of agricultural, animal, and mineral resources and added that Sudanese citizen is the pillar for development.

Bashir pointed to government efforts to support the vulnerable segments of the society through micro-financing programs, direct subsidies for poor families, and distribution of livelihood among the poor and needy.

He said that the federal government would support Gedaref state besides the support of the East Reconstruction and Development Fund (ERDF), pointing that the state managed to overcome its major water and gasoline problems.

Under the October 2006 peace agreement, the Eastern Front joined with the government and a $600 million ERDF was established to help the region recover from war.

A further $3.5 billion pledged at a donor conference that took place in Kuwait in December 2010 was also supposed to be added to the ERDF.
