KOTA BARU: Embattled former Kelantan government senior exco member Datuk Husam Musa appeared before top PAS leaders for two hours to explain his recent outburst against the state government.
The meeting, which was held at the Mentri Besar’s residence at JKR 10 here yesterday, was chaired by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.
It was also attended by Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yakob, his deputy Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah, Kota Baru MP Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan and state executive committee members.
Two weeks ago, Husam had reportedly criticised the Kelantan government during the state assembly sitting on several administrative matters.
His outburst raised eyebrows among the party members, whom did not expect such a senior leader to openly criticise his own party.
Abdul Hadi, who emerged from the meeting later, tried to downplay the issue.
He said that no action would be taken against Husam and that the meeting was actually to discuss the direction of the party’s administration.
“His spat was not on our agenda although it was discussed collectively.
“It is a norm for leaders to be vociferous within the party and it will be resolved amicably.
“But when one is dissatisfied with something, he must do it within the boundary of decorum and respect,” he added.
Hadi said any form of dissatisfaction within the party would be addressed immediately and settled amicably.
“We (PAS) are open to Husam’s criticisms towards the Kelantan government, and this meeting was held to get his explanation, although we have proper channels to address this matter,” he added.
