(The Star) PUTRAJAYA: Kulim state assemblyman Lim Soo Nee of Parti Keadilan Rakyat has threatened to quit Pakatan Rakyat if it continues to implement policies that do not benefit the Chinese.
However, he said he would not defect to the Barisan Nasional, which he said had made a good offer for him to hop over to the coalition.
“If I was (going) to defect to Barisan, I would have done so last year and I would not make it public that I had been approached,” he said in an interview with China Press.
He said that if he were to assess the performance of PAS, which led the state government, he would rate it as “fail”.
“However, if the state government starts implementing policies that take care of all races and gains the trust of the people, it will become a state government that passes the test,” he said.
When asked what kind of policies are considered “not doing any good to the Chinese community”, Lim said one of them was the mandatory installation of glass cubicles by pork sellers at markets.
“The state government should place emphasis on improving security in the state and other problems that concern the people instead of touching on such sensitive issues,” he said.
Therefore, he hoped that the state government would introduce more policies that would benefit the people to gain the support of the Chinese community.
