Posters critical of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim was seen upon his visit to Alor Setar. The posters adorned the streets of Jalan Langgar in conjunction with the Keadilan Kedah – Hari Raya Aidilfitri Open House celebrations. The state government cried foul stating that they are fake.
The posters were believed to have been hung up the night before shouting a message to Anwar to stop confusing the people of Kedah.
The posters also carry the Kedah State Government’s Logo and the log of PAS, the ruling party making them look authentic and almost as if it was an effort made by the state government.
Kedah Keadilan Chairman, Wan Salleh Wan Isa said that it was utter rudeness as the Anwar was visiting Kedah for Hari Raya accepting the Kedah government’s invitation and that he was not attending the open house with a political agenda.
“It is acts of a cowardice! It is a Hari Raya Celebration and the insult to our leader was uncalled for” said Wan Salleh when met at the Open House attended by approximately 8,000 people.
Wan Salleh also said that the state government was not shaken at all by this irresponsible act instead it has only strengthened the party’s determination to win over Putrajaya, and all other states under the present government’s rule.
