Muhyiddin is ‘darling of the people’, says PBS leader

(FMT) – PBS secretary-general Jahid Jahim said the party is impressed with the approach of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin as he has always given priority to looking after the people’s welfare.

He said the country’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic showed that Muhyiddin was committed in helping all segments of society and that no quarter escaped his attention.

“Muhyiddin is the ‘darling of the people’.

“That is why we did not hesitate to support him, what more with the creation of a new ministry to protect the welfare of Sabah and Sarawak, particularly in relation to the Malaysia Agreement (MA63),” he said here today.

Jahid said this when asked to comment on Muhyiddin’s announcement yesterday that Perikatan Nasional (PN), Barisan Nasional (BN) and PBS in Sabah had banded together as Gabungan Rakyat Sabah to face the Sept 26 state elections.

Muhyiddin, who is also PN chairman, made the announcement when speaking at a meeting with PN’s Sulaman candidate, Sabah PPBM chief Hajiji Noor, in Tuaran.

According to Jahid, in Gabungan Rakyat Sabah, all three entities enjoy equal status on all matters.

Yesterday, Muhyiddin spent almost an hour visiting Tuaran town, where he met traders at the fish and public markets.

In the elections, Jahid is defending the Tamparuli seat in a four-cornered fight with Alijus Sipil of PKR, Denis George Kian Fah of Parti Cinta Sabah and Raymond Alfred of LDP.
