Puad blames PAS for weakening Muafakat

JOHOR BARU: Umno supreme council member Datuk Dr Mohd Puad Zarkarshi accused PAS of weakening Muafakat Nasional by joining Perikatan Nasional.

He added that PAS got carried away in Perikatan because they wanted the government and ministerial posts that they have not held for a long time.

“That is why PAS is willing to sideline its leaders who are pro-Muafakat Nasional such as Datuk Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali, Nik Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz and Dr Mohd Zuhdi Marzuki,” he wrote on Facebook.

Perikatan – comprising Bersatu, PAS, Gerakan, Sabah Star and SAPP – is in Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob’s Umno-led Federal Government, while Umno and PAS are cooperating though Muafakat Nasional.

Puad was responding to PAS president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang who earlier said PAS had saved Umno after the party suffered badly in GE14.

Abdul Hadi added that it seemed Umno wanted to abandon cooperation with PAS by seeking to hold the Johor election.

He also likened Umno to a duck with a broken leg who had been saved by PAS.

Puad, who is Batu Pahat Umno division chief, said PAS knew that Umno rejected Perikatan as Bersatu had stabbed Umno in the back.

“There will come a time when PAS will be stabbed in the back as well. There is no political honesty in Perikatan Nasional.

“It’s better for Umno to go at it alone like what it had done in the Melaka election.

“Maybe it will be the PAS duck which will break its leg because it cooperated with Bersatu which is filled with political frogs,” he added.

“By that time, it will be too late as PAS will sink and drown,” he said, adding that it was difficult for Umno to be friends with PAS.
