Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi arrives at the Gerakan National Delegates Conference in Kuala Lumpur November 12, 2017. — Bernama picKUALA LUMPUR, Nov 12 — After recent natural disasters in Penang, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said today DAP’s time in the state was almost over.
He said it was time for Gerakan to step in and to recapture the state after two terms under the DAP.
“The landslide and floods show that the current Penang government emphasises on overdevelopment, something which Gerakan would have never done or do in the future,” he said at the party’s national delegates conference.
Zahid said Gerakan leaders helping flood victims in Penang was also a sign that showed Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders helped the people regardless of which party governed the state.
Earlier, Gerakan president Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong also blamed the DAP government for the floods in Penang.
“Penang had never been flooded in the past, but today it has and it was because of the state government and its emphasis it put on development,” he said.
Mah said while development was good, consideration should be on the people first.
