SHAH ALAM: Selangor PAS has told Malaysians to stop supporting the Barisan Nasional (BN) government if they do not want the country to continue being inflicted by alleged financial leakages.
Its state commissioner, Sallehen Mukhyi, said the people should instead switch their support to a party that knew what was forbidden and sinful.
He said the situation had become critical as the country was being hit with various financial scandals and mismanagement of public property and funds.
“The problem we face today is the system under BN, as long as it keeps producing leaders who allow leakages,” he claimed.
“Just stop BN from administering the country and vote in a new party that is better and more transparent, that understands the principles of ‘halal-haram’ (what is permitted and what is forbidden) and ‘dosa-pahala’ (what is sinful and what brings rewards) in running a government,” he said.
Sallehen told reporters this at the Selangor state assembly today, in response to a question on whether the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) controversy had affected the state in any way.
The Sabak assemblyman also said replacing the prime minister was not the only way to resolve the problem of leakages.
He said the whole system set up under BN thus far would need to be changed if the BN government was defeated in the upcoming 14th general election.
He said every prime minister who was allegedly involved in financial scandals, and mismanagement of public property and funds, had come from BN.
Sallehen also claimed that Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who was prime minister from 1981 to 2003, had a long list of scandals during his administration. Mahathir, 92, is now chairman of Pakatan Harapan and PPBM.
