KLANG: Discussions between Pakatan Harapan and Barisan Nasional on the upcoming state polls are complete, says Gobind Singh Deo.

The Selangor DAP chief added that the Pakatan Harapan-Barisan commitment is moving smoothly towards the next state election to be held this year.

Speaking at the annual convention of the party's Selangor chapter on Sunday (March 26), Gobind said that those who claim that the federal government is unstable and want to form a new government must be rejected.

"Statements such as those from the other side are to cover-up their own weaknesses, especially when they were the federal government in 2020 after the Sheraton Move," said Gobind.

Gobind said in order to win big in the state election, it must be shown that the level of cooperation within the party is strong.

"We have to always remember that the basis of the party is for us to uplift democracy, freedom, sovereignty and ensure equality and fairness for all," said Gobind.

Meanwhile, party secretary-general Anthony Loke said that DAP has become a punching bag for the federal government's detractors.

"We are now in the Federal Government and will definitely be targeted by opponent parties," said Loke in his address at the party's Selangor chapter's annual convention.

He said the opponents will continue to allege that DAP is a threat to the Federal administration, or be maligned to the Malays and Muslims.

"DAP is a punching bag to them but with patience and consistency, we will succeed in deflecting the allegations and maintain our performance in the government, " he said.

He said that DAP has proven that it is a loyal partner and reliable in the Selangor state government since 2008.

"Our leaders have played various roles - not only as representatives but also as Speaker as well as in various roles in local government such as councilors and village heads.

"This shows that the DAP can perform as a government," he said.
