PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said yesterday in Kuala Besut that the party is no longer interested in large scale gatherings, but will concentrate on small groups to get their message to the masses.
He paid a visit to Kota Putara Pas candidate Adam Mat Said in a small
village mosque yesterday where about 50 supporters turned out to hear
"We found out that large gatherings serve no purpose as
there is no personal touch in it for the targeted group. There are also
many outsiders who also attend and we do not know who they are or what
"That is why we will mobilise about 20 people from
various parts of the country to concentrate on smaller groups by holding
talks at supporters houses and we also do not need to apply for permits
to do this.
"I feel it much more effective to spread our manifesto
news in this manner, as we intend to wrestle back some of the seats
which we lost in Terengganu," said Abdul Hadi.
There was no fiery
speech, as he is normally associated with, as he advised the small group
of supporters to hold steadfast to their believes and not listen to
rumours which could derail their stand.
"We need to keep ourselves
united and works towards the party's success, and after that, the party
manifesto will be realised as promised," he said to the target group in
Kamung Lahar, Kota Putera.
There will be a three-cornered battle
in Kota Putara as PKR also nominated Mohamed Abdul Ghani Ibrahim to
battle Barisan Nasional's Mohd Mahdi Musa.
Besut has one Parliament and four State seats, all of which were won by BN in the last elections.
