Leaders have to let go of old grudges against Dr M, says Mat Sabu

SEREMBAN: Leaders of the four parties grouped under the Pakatan Harapan have no choice but to let go of old grudges against Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to ensure the victory for the pact in the upcoming general election (GE).
Parti Amanah Negara (PAN) president Mohamad Sabu said, some of the leaders in the coalition were once 'victims' of Dr Mahathir when he was prime minister.
"DAP's Lim Kit Siang and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim were punished under Dr Mahathir's leadership. Even I myself had to face action taken against me under the Internal Security Act (ISA) during Tun's era.
"Many leaders in Pakatan Harapan were victims under Tun's leadership. But, we have to forget about our old grudges and concentrate on winning the GE through this coalition," he said during his speech at Pakatan's Negri Sembilan Aidilfitri open house at Ampangan, here last night.
Also present was Pakatan vice-president and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) deputy president Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir.
A coalition between Parti Keadilan Rakyat, DAP, PAN and PPBM, Pakatan Harapan unveiled its leadership lineup on July 14 naming Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the de facto leader, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as its chairman and Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as its president.
Mohammad Sabu, who is Pakatan deputy president, said the pact will put aside their old dissatisfaction towards Dr Mahathir and focus on winning the hearts of the voters, especially Malays who have shown little supports for the pact.
