Pas gets a taste of its own medicine – cheap political provocation

Pas is getting a taste of its own medicine. Bitter as it may be, perhaps it is time for a state Pas leader to remind its central leadership to stop “cheap political provocation.”

Bitter pills are bitter, regardless who takes it. There is no rule that states it would be sweet one but bitter for another.

Yesterday Muhamad Arafat Varisai Mahamad (PH-Hulu Kinta) who is also Perak PKR vice chief claimed that three state assemblymen from the opposition bloc – Perikatan Nasional (PN) are supporting the PH-BN state government.

“They will remain in their parties and will not cross (sit with the government bloc in the state legislative assembly).

“It is more towards supporting the leadership of Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad,” Arafat is quoted as saying.

Cheap political provocation

In response to this, state opposition leader Razman Zakaria (PN-Gunung Semanggol) the claim as “cheap political provocation”.

“We don’t have any information and if there is anyone from the opposition who wants to support the government, it doesn’t make any changes.

“We don’t tolerate this kind of cheap political provocation, there is no interest for the country, we don’t tolerate it. Let him name the accused and we on the opposition side are still strong,” said Razman.

Razman is the same individual who had claimed in May this year that several PH-BN state lawmakers had visited him with the intention of switching sides to PN.

Razman should do us all a favour by getting the message across not only to Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang (PN-Marang) but also to their best buddies in Bersatu like Tan Sri Mahiaddin Yassin (PN-Pagoh) and Razali Idris (PN-Kijal) who is also Bersatu information chief.

Newton’s third law of motion states that for every action (force) in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction.

It seems that the third law of motion, applied in politics, appears to have a faster reaction.

Instead of using underhanded tactics, it would be best for politicians to serve their constituents to the best of their capability.
