Johari Abdul moots 'Bangsa Kedah' to foster unity



The people of Kedah have been asked to remain united, set aside their political differences and work together with the state government to make the state developed and rich.

Kedah PKR chief Johari Abdul said the people should stop being obsessed with political parties, as success can only be achieved by being united and working together with all quarters.

“We have to stay united, it doesn’t matter if we are with the opposition or the ruling government, let us develop our state. 

"We are not far from Kelantan in the state ranking now, so we can consider ourselves being in the poor state category. We will not get anywhere if we are fighting each other," he told Bernama in Sungai Petani today.

"What I’m saying is that we need to be united. If Johor has its Bangsa Johor, then we should have Bangsa Kedah. 

"The Kedahans should be united regardless of their political beliefs. The general election was long ago."

Johari said this in response to an Astro Awani report yesterday quoting him as saying that the Kedahans should create the concept of Bangsa Kedah, just like Bangsa Johor in Johor.

Meanwhile, he also called on the opposition to play its role and ensure check and balance in the Pakatan Harapan administration, so that all weaknesses can be ironed out and hence, benefit the people.
