SIK: Kedah caretaker Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor has called on the voters in the upcoming six states election to send a wake-up call to the 'opposition mentality' unity government leaders.
Sanusi, also Perikatan Nasional election director, took a dig at PKR and Pakatan Harapan leaders for 'being under sieged by opposition mentality' in governing the country.
"When they were in the opposition, they had lived in the 'opposition mentality', but once they are the government, they still apply the opposition mentality'. They are obsessed with finding other people's faults.
"That was why they only lasted for 22 months because they can't work well with civil servants, have trust issues with other people with the belief they are smarter than everyone," Sanusi said during his speech at 'Himpunan Munajat Perdana' here on late yesterday.
Present were Pas deputy president Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, its vice president Datuk Idris Ahmad and Perikatan Nasional secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin.
Sanusi went on advising Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail to stop using government instruments to find fault in others.
"Day in, day out, they are using the government instruments to find faults in Tan Sri Muhyiddin (Yassin), Datuk Hamzah and so on.
"You should not be acting in such a way after being the government. You have to change your character. You have to befriend all civil servants, not just simply order them to do this and that," he said.
Sanusi took a jibe at Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim by using a metaphor of the country as a bus and the prime minister as its driver.
"The problem with our driver is that he prefers to sit in the back seats instead of holding the wheels at the driver's seat because he wants to woo the support of young voters.
"We can't really tell where the driver is because he always moves around, causing the bus to lose its direction. Then, he passed the blame to the others.
"Our bus is plunging into a cliff, (with) ringgit is depreciating, price of goods spiralling, rubber price not increasing, investors leaving with their funds to invest in other countries.
"Hence, before our bus fall into the cliff, we need to wake up the driver by ensuring PN's victory in all six states in the upcoming polls," he said.
