SHAH ALAM: PAS and DAP have buried the hatchet over several issues that have recently weighed down Selangor Pakatan Rakyat-led government during a two-hour meeting here.

Selangor PAS Commissioner Datuk Dr Hasan Ali said both parties had acknowledged an end to their “feud” over various high-profile issues.

PAS and DAP had been at each other’s neck over the ban of beer in Muslim majority areas and the Select Committee for Competency, Accoun­tability and Transparency (Selcat) issues.

Dr Hasan crossed swords with Selcat chairman Teng Chang Khim whom he alleged had used bullying tactics against district officers during a public inquiry over misused funds before the last general election.

“We understand we have political differences in policies and principles between both parties. We will continue in our struggle in the spirit of true friendship.

“Through this understanding we can overcome the ban on beer implementation and the Selcat issue,” he said yesterday.

Present at the meeting were Selangor DAP chairman Ean Yong Hian Wah, Selangor DAP deputy chairman Tony Pua, Klang MP Charles Santiago and state excos Ronnie Liu, Iskandar Abdul Samad and Teresa Kok.
