Kajang Move: The Epitome of PKR Internal Fighting
All that we have now are questions. Even though they won the Kajang by-election, most Malaysians know that the real reason for the Kajang move is not for the benefit of the Pakatan Rakyat, but it is solely because of PKR internal problems.
Suddenly Khalid Ibrahim position as the Menteri Besar of Selangor is threatened and now although they are all smiles and holding hands while celebrating Wan Azizah’s win in the by-election we can feel the tension that exist between them. It is crucial for all Malaysian to understand that PKR is the game maker in this particular scenario, and they have the power to change the course of the Selangor’s administration even if they only have certain amounts of seats to begin with.
Anwar Ibrahim is in a conundrum when Wan Azizah (his wife) is pit against Azmin Ali (a long-time family friend) while Khalid Ibrahim is seen as favouring Wan Azizah more than Azmin. Khalid Ibrahim are backed by the DAP while Azmin is seen as an ultra-Malay by some DAP leaders stand close to Anwar Ibrahim to ensure his survival in this battle of supremacy of the PKR party.
PKR is doing a good job in silencing two of the biggest opposition party in Malaysia which is namely PAS and DAP. Many PAS leaders have voice out their concern on PKR political game. They are worried that PKR is trying to manipulate the Islamic party into being their political servant rather than partners in administrating states controlled by the Pakatan Rakyat. DAP on the other hand are only concerned with the Chinese population, that is why all Chinese media controlled by the DAP supports Khalid Ibrahim’s administration of Selangor. This can be seen clearly during the Langat 2 MoU signing by Khalid Ibrahim and the Federal Government a move detest by Anwar Ibrahim and Azmin Ali.
The Kajang Move is necessary for PKR, not only to reduce the tension that are currently gripping the party, but it is also to ensure that PKR would always be relevant in their hope to take the helm of the nation. The party is currently trying to reinvent themselves so that the people of Malaysia would look up to Anwar Ibrahim as they did in 1998. That is also the reason why they are proclaiming the Reformasi 2.0 campaign during Wan Azizah’s candidacy in the by-election.
What we can concur on these particular events happening especially in Selangor, PKR are afraid that they are losing touch with the people. There are no major issue that they could carry to smear the good name of Barisan Nasional and its leaders. The PKR is playing a dangerous game; it is up to us the rakyat to understand the real situation. The people must know the truth about PKR. Other Pakatan Rakyat leaders must also be cautious of PKR and their cronies; it has been proven from time to time that they only work for themselves and no other.
