    GOMBAK: Selangor caretaker Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari has responded to comments made by his Kedah counterpart Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor, asserting that he has valuable insights into successful state management that he can share with him.

    Amirudin retaliated against Muhammad Sanusi’s claim that Selangor’s economic growth was solely due to its proximity to Kuala Lumpur and not the policies implemented by Pakatan Harapan.

    Counteracting this viewpoint, Amirudin argued that Kedah is also adjacent to Penang, which is another economic powerhouse in the region.

    “The Kedah Mentri Besar has failed to look at the bigger picture. Penang is right next door, and let’s not forget that Kuala Lumpur was once part of Selangor,” he stated during a press gathering after attending the Madani Afiat programme launch in Gombak yesterday.

    Selangor and Penang are currently under the governance of Pakatan Harapan, while Kedah falls under Perikatan Nasional.

    All three states will be holding state elections on August 12.

    Amirudin highlighted Penang’s continuous growth and ability to attract significant investments, making it one of the largest contributors to the national economy.

    “However, Kedah is falling behind. He (Muhammad Sanusi) should introspect before criticizing other places,” Amirudin added.

    “Don’t worry, I will be visiting Kedah next week and will personally explain to him how to bring Kedah on par with Selangor.”

    Amirudin, who is also the chairman of Selangor Pakatan, stated that the competition for the Malay-majority seats in northern Selangor is still wide open.

    “Historically, no single party has held a monopoly over these seats. Prior to the 2018 general election, Barisan Nasional was victorious, but since then, Pakatan has made significant progress,” he explained.

    “Only recently has Perikatan gained some advantage there. The race is open for all parties,” he asserted, expressing confidence in the achievements of the Pakatan-led administration and their collaboration with Barisan in securing these seats.

    “Perikatan’s sole focus on those seats indicates their lack of confidence in capturing Selangor as a whole and their intent to become a formidable opposition force,” he stated.

    “We are not underestimating anything and will persistently work hard until election day,” he vowed.

    Amirudin also expressed his intention to defend his Sungai Tua state seat but emphasized that the final decision rests with Pakatan’s top leadership.

    The state elections in Selangor, Negri Sembilan, Penang, Kedah, Terengganu, and Kelantan are scheduled for August 12, with early polling taking place on August 8. Nomination day is set for July 29.
