Guan Eng congratulates Barisan
BUKIT MERTAJAM: Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has congratulated Barisan Nasional on its victory in the Galas and Batu Sapi by-elections, but hopes the coalition will fulfil its election promises.
He said Barisan’s victory in Galas was a victory for its by-election director Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.
Lim, who is also DAP secretary-general, said the battle in Galas was not between Barisan and Pakatan Rakyat or between Umno and PAS.
“We were fighting a local legend, Tengku Razaleigh.
“And, we must concede that so long as he is in Gua Musang, the people there will remain in his hands, even if he is without a political party,” he said during a Deepavali gathering at Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy’s residence in Simpang Ampat here yesterday.
