TELUK INTAN: Pakatan Rakyat should stop blaming Barisan Nasional for everything negative happening to its parliamentary seat by-election campaign here, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
He said Pakatan needed to have proof before throwing any allegations at them.
“Do they have proof? Can they establish any link that it has anything to do with us?” he said during the groundbreaking ceremony of the RM5bil West Coast Expressway project here yesterday.
“Even if they report to the police, they must have facts,” he added.
Muhyiddin was asked to comment on allegations by DAP that Barisan supporters had disseminated the alleged “bikini” pictures of their candidate Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud to constituents here.
DAP lodged a police report over the matter on Saturday.
The woman in the bikini in the picture was identified as Filipino actress Pauleen Luna.
He stressed that Barisan would not smear DAP’s candidate during the campaign and was only focused on promoting its own candidate, Gerakan president Datuk Mah Siew Keong.
Muhyiddin also said Barisan should not underestimate the Opposition and needed to work hard to get votes from the constituents.
“We are still the underdog but we have a 50-50 chance of winning.
“The job is not done yet and each component parties need to work together to ensure we win,” he said.
On another accusation that Umno would “wrest” Dyana Sofya into its wing should she win the by-election, Muhyiddin said this was another dirty tactic played up by the Opposition to confuse the people.
“The voters should not be waylaid by the Opposition.
“But I think the voters are not easily influenced by them,” he said.
