PONTIAN, Nov 11 2019 : Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Dr Sahruddin Jamal has denied that there were DAP grassroots members who were unhappy to campaign for the Pakatan Harapan (PH) candidate Karmaine Sardini.
On the other hand, Dr Sahruddin, who is the PH’s Tanjung Piai parliamentary constituency by-election director, regarded ties among component parties were good.
‘’To date, until last night, I was still campaigning with the teams from DAP, Our ties (Bersatu), not only with DAP but also with other parties under PH, are cordial, good and we can co-operate.
‘’I feel, god willing, what is important now is that we must focus to win. Tanjung Piai is ours,’’ he told reporters here yesterday.
Dr Sahruddin said the PH campaign in Tanjung Piai received the support from the highest DAP leaderships, namely, DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang and secretary general Lim Guan Eng.
He said this when commenting on a statement by Guan Eng who admitted there were some among the party members who were ‘a bit unhappy’ to campaign in Tanjung Piai.
Earlier, Dr Sharuddin attended a friendly gathering with the fishing community in Kukup which was also attended by Agriculture and Agro-Based Minister Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub and Minister of Economic Affairs Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.
Meanwhile, on the allegation on giving away of free sim cards by PH at a public ceramah in Tenggayun here, recently, he said he had no information on the matter.
‘’I don’t know anything about sim cards, I have no information, so I don’t want to comment anything,’’ said Dr Sahruddin.
MCA has questioned the action of PH who gave prepaid sim cards for free to the public and wanted the police and the Election Commission (EC) to take action. – Bernama
