IPOH: The Perak Opposition’s allegations of attempts to topple the state government are "seasonal", says state PKR vice-chairman Tan Kar Hing.
Tan, who is also a state executive councillor, said this was the third time the Opposition was pulling such a stunt before the start of the state assembly sitting.
“Previously, when such allegations were made by them, it was also done before the start of the assembly, and even this time, they are doing before the assembly takes place next month.
“This aims to portray to the people that there is no stability in the administration of the state.
“But this is not true. PKR, for one, supports the leadership of Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu,” he told a press conference here Monday (March 18).
Among those present were PKR state executive councillor Abdul Yunus Jamhar (Kuala Kurau), and PKR’s Teja assemblymen Sandra Ng Shy Ching, as well as representatives of the party’s state leadership.
Last week, state Opposition whip Datuk Saarani Mohamad alleged that the conspiracy to topple the government was still ongoing, with an exco member meeting with Umno assemblymen.
Saarani had purportedly claimed that the move by a state exco member had the blessings of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, which was later denied by the premier.
Tan said Saarani should stop making such speculation, and give Perak a bad name that could break the confidence of investors.
“It is pointless for him to do such things, as it will not benefit the Opposition or Pakatan Harapan,” he added.
