For pas, it has been a few years of discontent in their handling...or some might say, mishandling Kedah. The Kedah exco, led by the iron-fisted azizan alnost went into shambles when phahrolrazi and his cohorts refused to accept the re-appointment of his ecxo position, the destructive state-approved logging activities, the questionable approval on the building of a shopping centre on waqf land, the rotting infrastructure, garbage problems, drainage issues and many more. Many Kedahans have even stated that, with this Pas Kedah state government, the future state governments can't go any much lower.
The scenario among pas leadewrs in Kedah has been tense for the past few months. Everybody in pas suddenly wants to become a candidate in the next general election. Tiffs and quarrels have began taking places. There were even talks among pas members, a few months ago, on how a few of their members have jumped ship to pkr, looking for opportunities to be candidates. There's also one chap, an Ansara member who also is an insurance salesman who is a hardcore pas member, formally revoked his pas membership to be a pkr member, all of this because he wants to be the next candidate to go against Dato Bashah, the Kedah UMNO Liaison Chairman. I guess desperation calls for desperate moves.
Pas Kedah has seen the writing om the wall...literally. With grafitti marks of ABAI and slogans of anti-anwar, even the anwar-influenced faction of pas try their best not to mention pkr or anwar's name. After all, they do know that azizan is also a strong supporter of ABAI and TIBAI. We would suggest that the anwar-influenced-pas faction to join the new movement known as Cintai Insan Bernama Anwar Ibrahim. Of course, this is a blog open for all, so I am not going to announce its acronym here.
Adding salt to the wound, the Masjidil Haram Sheikh Dr Sulaiman Saloomihas condemned
Mukhriz has stated that he is ready for any post but polls come first. He is serious and really committed. We have seen him going around in Kedah almost every weekend. While pas leaders and spinmasters try to dig up any dirt on Mukhriz, pas members, on the other hand, keep inviting Mukhriz to their kenduris, which he obliges without miss.
Pas Kedah's worry is understanhdable. Who among them can fix the present problems created by themselves? As for the present MB, he is not the type who wants to hear advice and goes amok when his decisions are questioned by his own exco members. Phahrolrazi is now seen as Brutus, who stands loyal in front of azizan but with his supporters ready to "dig azizan's grave" at his back. Amiruddin, outside of his constituent and among other factions, has been viewed as an usurper. Mahfuz...well, can somebody tell him to buy new socks at places other than the RM1.99 Store...And with azizan soon going to be out of the way, mat sabu will be contesting somewhere...or anywhere than he can bamboozle himself through. I hope people in that area will keep their wives locked at home.
One can almost smell the desperation in pas Kedah. Pas Kedah will be holding an event called Ijtimak Jentera Pilihanraya Pas on the 1st of June 2012. As usual, Stadium Darulaman is already filled by pas members, and again, most of them spoke with an east coast slang. Why do pas keep importing people for their events, and it seems that are importing more for this event. Well, I'm hoping that this time it will be better than the doomed pakatan konvensyen earlier this year. No, it's nothing political, it's just that the last convention not only failed, the imported supporters didn't even spend much at famous Alor Setar eateries. This time, we hope they could at least spend more at Pekan Rabu, or at least Nasi Lemak Haji Ali.Yes, that's true, I don't care about the ijtimak event.
Hypothetically, if Mukhriz becomes the MB of Kedah, it will be a major task to repair the damages that have been inflicted by the present state government. How long it will take is another matter. Kedah is expecting unpredictable weather these next 1 or 2 months, but for pas Kedah, they might just find more rain coming their way.
