Perak MB: Umno doesn't feel left out of Perikatan state committee, will have its own under BN

IPOH: Umno does not feel excluded from the Perak Perikatan Nasional committee, says Datuk Saarani Mohamad.

“Umno did not join Perikatan, so the issue of being left out of the committee does not arise, ” he said after distributing bubur lambuk here on Monday (April 26).

The Perikatan committee consists of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia,

PAS and Gerakan.

Saarani said Umno too will have its own state committee under Barisan Nasional, together with MCA and MIC.

It was reported earlier in the month that both Bersatu and PAS had said a manifesto committee for Perak Periktan had been formed.

Last week, it was also announced that the coalition had formed a Perikatan Youth committee.

When asked if there would be any discussion between Umno and PAS, Saarani said if there were talks, the aim would be to achieve good.

“Negotiations are for win-win situations, or to strengthen one’s relationship, and not to destroy or defeat one another.

“For example, hijacking Umno members to form a committee is not a negotiation, ” he added.

The current state government consists of 25 Umno, six Bersatu and three PAS members.

On another matter, Saarani said the state government staff would receive a Hari Raya bonus of RM1,000, which would be paid out on May 20.

He said the May salary would be paid out soon, by May 6.

“Thus the bonus will be given only after Hari Raya, ” he added.
