KUALA NERUS: The PAS Supporters’ Assembly (DHPP) has reminded party leaders not to ignore them in the party’s efforts to forge cooperation with Umno.

DHPP delegate Lau Chin Chua said Umno’s presence was recent, but DHPP had long been defending PAS and drawing non-Malay supporters in previous elections.

“Now (PAS) is becoming friendly with Umno, MCA and MIC. Remember why Umno fell… because its leaders were not trustworthy,” he said when debating the PAS president’s policy speech at the party’s 64th muktamar, or general assembly, here.

Lau also reminded PAS members to be cautious about “friendship” with Umno, MCA and MIC, saying it could be seen as defending their corrupt leaders.

“Friends are friends, but a wrong is still a wrong. If some of them are punished for corruption, we do not sympathise with them because they are wrong,” he said.
