YAN - The blue wave of change is sweeping Sungai Limau after the Barisan Nasional managed to make in-roads into PAS territory, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
The Deputy Prime Minister said change could be felt in the air when he was invited to lead prayers at two mosques in the PAS stronghold of Bukit Choras and Matang Buloh. Matang Buluh was never won by Barisan since 1959.
Muhyiddin said Barisan had a bright chance of winning today.
"The people have shown confidence in us, and even the Chinese voters are reacting positively towards the Barisan," he said after attending a closed-door meeting at Barisan command centre here yesterday.
He added that Barisan would not resort to provocative and insensitive acts such as putting up one-legged mannequins as campaign material.
It was reported that some people had put up dummies with "amputated" legs near two Barisan by-election operation centres.
It was understood that the dummies were in reference to the late former mentri besar Tan Sri Azizan Abdul Razak, whose legs were amputated due to a diabetic-related illness before his death.
Earlier when opening the Pasar Tani Sungai Limau Dalam, Muhyiddin said the allocations for Chinese schools in Sungai Limau should not be politicised nor should there be demonising of former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
"We have allocations for all types of schools, and saying that we only help them during the election is certainly not true. And why are they hitting on Dr Mahathir? Such personal attacks serve no purpose," he added.
