KAJANG: Opposition leader Datuk Sri Anwar Ibrahim did not offer any new explanation behind the "Kajang move" and merely said that it was to fortify the state politically in the onslaught of attacks by Umno.
"A grand design is already in place that would involve vast sums of money being poured into their state party machinery.
"Acts of political sabotage including causing dissension and disunity within Pakatan will be taken to new levels," he told a packed Taman Mesra community hall in Kajang on Monday.
Also present were Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, PKR deputy president Azmin Ali and other party leaders.
He said that it was not an academic issue or fantasy conjured up to scare the people.
"It is already happening and even as we speak it is gaining momentum and intensity," he added in reference to the religious issues played up such as the bible seizures.
PKR strategic director Rafizi Ramli had previously given the same explanation for the so-called Kajang move.
Anwar also said that they would use Selangor as a launching pad to claim Putrajaya.
Last week Tuesday, Anwar was announced as the candidate for the upcoming Kajang by- election after it’s assemblyman Lee Chin Cheh sent in his resignation the day before.
This led to speculation that Anwar would take over Khalid's post if he wins the by-election.
Many Pakatan supporters were angry with PKR and said they were no different to the country’s ruling party.
Selangor PAS also voiced their objection to Anwar replacing Khalid.
