Clean up your backyard, focus on people, DPM tells Pakatan

Pakatan Rakyat should sort out its internal conflict and focus on the people instead of tussling over the Selangor mentri besar’s post, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
He said the contradictory views held by PAS, PKR and DAP on the post would cause negative repercussions for the people of Selangor.
“Pakatan needs to think of the people and ensure that the political scene in the state is stable,” he told reporters during a Hari Raya breakfast session with the media at his home here yesterday.
Muhyiddin said PKR wanted to replace Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim with party president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as they could not agree with the terms agreed to by the mentri besar over the Langat 2 project.
“We are in the final stages of the Langat 2 agreement and, now suddenly, there is a call for (Dr) Wan Azizah to take charge and review the matter.
“Whatever it is, I do not think they are taking the people’s issues into consideration,” he said.
Many netizens from Selangor and Kuala Lumpur are questioning Pakatan’s future in national politics following the MB controversy.
Tommy Kok wrote on Facebook that it was better to dissolve the Selangor state assembly.
However, Michael Lee opposed the idea of another state election.
Syahazzly Izham Hamzah reminded Pakatan of Khalid’s leadership strengths.
Shah Alam resident Khairul Azhar Nazri likened the crisis to an entertaining show.
Ho Kit Yen from Petaling Jaya also expressed her displeasure by posting: “Get over it. We want someone on the job, not making dramas”.
