PERAK Barisan Nasional (BN) is not intimidated by talk that the opposition will take over the state in the next general election. State BN chairman and Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir said such threats would not affect its efforts in serving the people.
“We refuse to dance to their tune when they have party problems of their own.
“In Perak, we know the opposition is led by DAP.
“PKR deputy president and Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali is welcome here if he is able to divide his time between Selangor and Perak.
“We are not intimidated by statements of opposition leaders, including Azmin, who had said the opposition will take back the state.
“We have been dealing with such threats for a long time and we will not be affected by them,” Zambry said, adding that he preferred to let his work do the talking.
BN and the opposition hold 31 and 28 state seats, respectively in the state.
On a different matter, he said a few thousand Perak Umno grassroots leaders would attend the party’s 71st anniversary celebrations in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, next Thursday.
“It has been decided by the Supreme Council that we will convene in Bukit Jalil.
On the state front, we will hold programmes in conjunction with the anniversary, but our focus will be the gathering in Bukit Jalil.”
Zambry, however, remained coy when asked whether he would present the state Umno’s list of candidates for the 14th General Election to the party’s top leadership at the gathering.
He said the party was screening the candidates and that they would be revealed in due course.
Perak Barisan Nasional chairman and Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir says the opposition’s threats will not affect BN’s efforts to serve the people.
