PAS Claims Fake Banners Put up in Selangor to Divide Pakatan

SHAH ALAM, April 8 — Fake banners and flyers intended to divide the federal opposition Pakatan Rakyat (PR) have popped up in almost the whole of Selangor, Selangor PAS claimed today.

PAS MP Khalid Samad said the party suspected that political rival Umno was behind the fake publicity materials that were detected last week, adding that party workers caught four youths in the act of putting up such banners in Semenyih.



“PAS Selangor has detected certain quarters that we suspect is Umno has done evil deeds by putting up banners and flyers intended to melaga-lagakan (create disunity among) the component parties in Pakatan Rakyat .

“Our workers also successfully caught four youths that were putting up banners and took them to the Semenyih police station,” Khalid told a press conference at his office here.

“From questioning the four youths that put up the banners, we found a piece of paper with the list of locations where it’ll be placed up... a total of 96 areas were listed by those placing the banners,” the Shah Alam MP added.

He said one banner said PAS president Datuk Abdul Hadi Awang is the PM-to-be candidate, while another featured a photograph of DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang as a candidate for prime minister.

The banners appeared to be aimed at a raw spot, with a controversy previously arising over who would lead the country if PR — composed of PAS, the DAP, PKR — wins Election 2013.

But leaders from the pact had then come out and reaffirmed their support for Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who is also the de facto PKR leader, as their PM-to-be choice.

Slogans carried on the banners include phrases like “We promise you a new Malaysian Malaysia”, “We support Anwar for prime minister” and also those on the “hudud”, the Islamic penal code.

“With this latest development, it clearly proves Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN) are desperate to do anything to bring down Pakatan in Selangor, including using the strategy of lies and provocation,” Khalid said.

He urged those in mosques to help spread information and block the distribution of any false and provocative leaflets to the public.

In Election 2008, BN suffered a historic defeat, losing its customary two-thirds majority and five states — Selangor, Perak, Kedah, Penang, Kelantan to the opposition.

BN has set its sights on regaining Selangor, the country’s richest state, and has attacked the PR state administration led by Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim for allegedly failing to fulfil promises made in 2008.

PR won 36 of the 56 state seats and 17 of the 22 parliamentary seats in the 2008 general election.

Lawatan Kerja ke Kilang Carlsberg

Tajuk posting saya kali ini barangkali akan memeranjatkan sesetengah pihak. Lanjutan daripada perbincangan berhubung Terminal Bas Shah Alam, saya bersama beberapa Ahli Majlis MBSA telah melawat kilang Carlsberg pada hari Khamis 5 Ogos, jam 3 petang. Kami disambut oleh Dato’ Chin Voon Loong, Timbalan Pengarah Urusan Syarikat berkenaan. Beliau memberikan penjelasan dan latar belakang syarikat serta prestasi perniagaannya semenjak ianya mula beroperasi. Untuk makluman semua, kilang Carlsberg Shah Alam telah mula beroperasi pada tahun 1972, iaitu 38 tahun dahulu. Ia merupakan di antara kilang yang terawal di kawasan tersebut dan semasa ianya dibina, hanya hutan dan belukar di kelilingnya.

Oktoberfest dan Pendirian Saya

Temuramah saya yang dibuat oleh ISMA berhubung isu Oktoberfest telah banyak menimbulkan kontroversi. Mungkin kerana ramai hanya membaca tajuk. Sepertimana biasa. Malas untuk membaca dan faham tetapi teringin sangat mengutuk. Lebih-lebih lagi bila yang memberi komen itu adalah diri saya. Malang sungguh nasib mereka ini. Tidak faham dan terus menceritakan mengikut selera mereka. Sampai ada yang mengatakan saya ‘sokong’ dan ucapkan tahniah. Biasalah. Kalau semua sudah faham, kurang pulalah kerja untuk saya!

Hj. Azli Yusof

Di antara tugas pemimpin adalah untuk mewujudkan pelapis yang berkemampuan, berakhlak dan beramanah. Di kalangan pelapis di Shah Alam adalah Hj. Azli Yusof, beliau merupakan seorang profesional muda yang telah terlibat pada awalnya dengan PAS sejak di kampus semasa masih menuntut di US dan kemudiannya bergiat di peringkat Pemuda sekembali ke tanah air. Telah dipilih sebagai YDP PAS Kawasan Shah Alam pada 2013 bagi menggantikan saya setelah saya memilih untuk tidak mempertahankan jawatan tersebut pada tahun itu.
Beliau kemudiannya meninggalkan PAS setelah melihat pasti tersebut terpesong dari jalan asalnya dan bersama AMANAH sejak penubuhannya. Seorang yang dinamik dan berkemampuan serta berpengalaman dalam bidang kejuruteraan, perniagaan dan juga politik.
WaLlahu 'Alam KHALID SAMAD
