Azmin Ali: Chinese, Indians have signalled their support towards PN in state polls

NEGRI Sembilan is seen to be swamped by a wave of change when people of various races come together to express their support for the Perikatan Naskional (PN) coalition ahead of the upcoming state polls.

Selangor PN chairman Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali admitted that he was excited to see the presence of many Chinese and Indians at the Ceramah Perdana Gelombang Kebangkitan Rakyat organised by the Negri Sembilan PN last night.

“This proves that Malaysians whether the Malays, Chinese or Indians are no longer afraid of PN as claimed, propagated and preached to them as the green wave by (retired DAP supremo) Tan Sri Lim Kit Siang,” he told a sell-out crowd in Senawang.

“The Chinese and the Indians shouldn’t be afraid of PN. They should be more afraid of the corrupt robbers and untrustworthy people who’re administering the country today.

“In front of us is a wave of people, a wave of young people who are tired of the behaviour and theatrics of the humans in Putrajaya. Sometimes we don’t even know who the Prime Minister (PM) of Malaysia is.”

Added the PN information chief who was himself a former PKR deputy president prior to being sacked by the party for allegedly orchestrating the Sheraton Move which led to the collapse of the 22-month-old Pakatan Harapan (PH) government in February 2020:

“We don’t know if he wants to be a celebrity, if he wants to be a singer, if he wants to be a runner, what else, if he wants to be a performer … haha,” Azmin poked fun at his once PKR ‘boss’ and now PM Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Azmin also reiterated some of the failures of Anwar’s government that he had mentioned involving financial and economic management as well as various unfulfilled promises compared to the previous PN administration.

“It has been sx months since we give them an opportunity (to run the country) yet they are so far behind the progress in the six months administered by (eighth PM) Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

“See for yourself how the ringgit has depreciated to RM4.64 to a US$1, the lowest rate in more than two decades yet no solution from the ‘king of formula’ (referring to Economy Minister Rafizi Ramli) who even deemed such development as a healthy trend.

“When ringgit depreciates, the currencies of our neighbours will tyrannise Johor Bahru and Kuala Lumpur. Our export will be impacted … our import becomes expensive which prompted BNM to raise the OPR (overnight policy rate) on May 3 with the hope of strengthening the ringgit (but to no avail).” – June 11, 2023
