KUALA LUMPUR, May 27 – Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has urged the people to be critics of the Pakatan Harapan (PH)-ruled government’s performance. The PH de-facto chief said he would be with the community to monitor the government’s movements under the leadership of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in ensuring that the lot of the people and the future of the country were looked after.
“I spoke with Tun Dr Mahathir that we will monitor (for example) what the task of the Deputy Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail) in Pandan (and in Parliament) is like. We will also monitor the work of Izham Hashim in the Pandan Indah state seat.
“It’s our duty now, not to insult them (the current government) but to lovingly remind them of the responsibilities that must be fulfilled,” he said at the Iftar Perdana Ceremony at Nurul Hidayah Mosque, Kampung Pandan Dalam, here today.
The event was attended by Dr Wan Azizah and Pandan Indah assemblyman Izham Hashim. Anwar said he wanted the PH government to champion the lot of the poor and orphans as well as offered hopes the economic gap between the people, which was now perceived to be drifting further apart, could be narrowed.
“The wealthy are overflowing with riches, and it is different with low income people, who are further burdened with taxes and price increases. This is the responsibility of the PH government under the leadership of Tun Dr Mahathir. Our job is to help these good aspirations be implemented,” he added. — Bernama
