PAS is making a mighty effort, with daily campaigns backed by creative posters that are designed to open the eyes of the Selangor citizens against the ‘ugliness’ of the ruling coalition in the richest state in Malaysia.
The campaigns are unending, hard-hitting and at times hilarious.
However, netizens are taking the threats posed by the PAS in its bid to take over the state seriously. They are keeping a daily tab on the collateral posted by the PAS and its allies and supporters.
Take this one for instance this tweet from @PASPusat:
ANAK JATI SELANGOR UNTUK MB SELANGOR
Kalau ada anak jati yang kompeten untuk jadi MB Selangor, kenapa kita nak pilih orang luar?
Lagipun anak jati Selangor bukan calang-calang dan sebarangan orang.

“If there are natives who are competent to be Selangor MB, why do we want to choose outsiders? After all, the natives of Selangor are not ordinary people.”
It is accompanied by a photograph of PAS Selangor information chief Abdul Basith Abdul Halim.
The response from the netizens is swift and hard-hitting too.

Jom tgk contoh anak jati dgn bukan anak jati mntadbir
MB PAS 3 negeri smua anak jati, tapi bila sebut isu wanita, hanya ada seorang wanita dlm barisan exco pmerintahn PAS, malah ada negeri exco wanitanya adlh lelaki!
Sbaliknya di Sngor, sblum ini 3 wanita dilantik sbg exco.. pic.twitter.com/P4hSDk71b8

“Let’s take a look at the examples of indigenous people and non-native indigenous people. PAS MB in three states are all indigenous people, but when it comes to women’s issues, there is only one woman in the exco ranks of the PAS government.
“Even in one state (run by the PAS) the exco who represents female affairs is a man! On the other hand, in Selangor, three women were appointed as excos.”
According to this user, there is something fishy with the PAS and its attempt to take over Selangor.
Meanwhile, user @ShazwanZdainal said:
Apa yg @PASPusat nak buat di Selangor sampai minta rakyat Selangor undi PAS?
Nak buat tok nenek di bandar berjalan kaki sejauh 500m hanya untuk buang sampah?
Nak buat rakyat Selangor mandi dan minum air Sungai Klang?
Atau nk curi kekayaan di Selangor utk dialirkan ke tempat…

“What does @PASPusat want to do in Selangor to ask the people of Selangor to vote for PAS? Are you planning to make a grandma walk 500m in the city just to throw out the trash?
“Planning to make the people of Selangor bathe and drink Klang River water? Or want to steal wealth in Selangor to transfer to other places? Try to explain clearly what PAS wants to do because people want to know.” — May 21, 2023
