PAS ‘is no better’ for it is replicating PH-BN Raya open house this weekend

THIS could be the case of not being able to swallow its pride. After having chastised the recent Madani Malaysia Aidilfitri Open House as being both politically-motivated and a waste of money, PAS is only behaving in exactly the same manner.

(Focus Malaysia) – The Islamist party is now extending with open arms its invitation to Malaysians nationwide to attend its very own national level Raya open house in Kedah this weekend – only one week apart from that initiated by the unity government.

At the time of writing, PAS has yet to disclose if it is self-funding the event which is slated to take place at Kompleks PAS Kedah this Saturday (May 6) instead of ‘wasting taxpayers’ money’ or that if it has a commercial outfit as a sponsor.

What can be safely said – perhaps – is that Bersatu which is its core partner in Perikatan Nasional (PN) is unable to chip in with any form of monetary contribution given that the party has its two main bank accounts (CIMB Bank and AmBank) “seized and not only frozen” by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorist Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.

“Come in large numbers regardless of whether you are PAS members, supporters, loyalists or non-party members – and this includes friends of PN – to enliven this event,” shouted Kedah PAS commissioner Datuk Ahmad Yahaya. “The fest will start at about 12 noon.”
