KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 4 — Malaysia Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng yesterday criticized PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang for his failure in improving economy in Kelantan.
He said PAS does not have any nation-building plan except creating racial and religious sentiments amongst the Malay and Muslims against non-Malays and minority religious groups.
Kelantan, which is PAS-led state, has no economy record… It is a failed economy with annual budget deficits and dependent on the Federal government for financial aid in paying the salaries of Kelantan civil service, he added.
“PAS and Hadi may be desperate to win Malay/Muslim votes in the Port Dickson Parliamentary by-election, since PAS know they have minimal support amongst non-Malay or non-Muslim voters.
“They have always attempted to create negative sentiments amongst the Malay and Muslim communities against minority races and minority religious groups to gain political capital, and distract attention from their own weaknesses of not having any nation-building plans to develop the country’s economy,” DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said.
