PETALING JAYA: DAP should cease all association and cooperation with PAS following the Islamist party’s attempt to hijack the anti-Goods and Services Tax (GST) rally as a march of support for its controversial bid to introduce hudud in Kelantan, said MCA religious bureau chairman Datuk Ti Lian Ker.
In a statement yesterday, Ti said PAS has once again displayed its political trickery against DAP during the gathering on Thursday.
“PAS had blatantly hijacked the anti-GST rally by displaying “support hudud” banners.
“PAS had repeatedly shown their disregard for DAP and the spirit of Pakatan consensus.
“I call upon DAP to immediately stop dancing with the wolves and seriously cease all association or cooperation with PAS,” he said, adding that PAS had repeatedly belittled DAP despite the latter having more MPs.
“DAP should know what PAS’ stand is but they are desperate to obtain the votes of PAS supporters to win more parliamentary and state seats.
“What is the point of having more parliamentary seats if DAP exposes the liberty of the nation to serious threats such as hudud?” he said.
Yesterday The Star reported that while the anti-GST rally was billed as a protest against the tax, PAS spiritual adviser Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat posted a picture of the rally on Facebook with a caption reading: “A view from DBKL Tower of the gathering to protest GST and to support the implementation of hudud on May 1 at Dataran Merdeka.”
