Sg Besar polls: PAS candidate slams Amanah, DAP over billboards

SEKINCHAN: It is both sad and unfortunate that friends have now turned into enemies.

PAS candidate Dr Abdul Rani Osman (pic) said he was disheartened that DAP and Amanah had resorted to hitting below the belt in their campaign strategy.

He was referring to a billboard put up in Sekinchan that allegedly slandered PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang as well as accused the Islamist party of being in cohorts with Barisan Nasional.

"We were all together once and I am really disappointed that they did this.

"But we will not retaliate at all and will be matured in our campaigning," said Dr Rani when met during his visit to a Chinese neighbourhood here Thursday.

Dr Rani, who is also Meru assemblyman, claimed some PKR and DAP members had confided in him that they were not happy with the billboard incident as well as the attacks on PAS.

He also dismissed claims that PAS was in cohorts with Barisan.

"If we were with them, why are we contesting in this by-election?

"We may not win but we are contesting to send a clear message against Barisan," said Dr Rani.
