Anwar:  Digital platform criticism welcomed

KUALA LUMPUR: Social media users was encouraged to check and balance the actions of the government of the day said PKR president, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The call was made by Anwar who is also the Port Dickson MP while delivering his closing keynote at the Malaysian Social Media Week (MSMW) 2019.

“The government needs to be checked. You have the freedom and my support to bang them as it is,” Anwar told the MSMW delegates at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre.

“We don’t want to listen to the same old statements of arrogance which we sometimes hear. You have all the freedom online to bang them as hard as you want,” he added.

“You demanded change. Ostentatious lifestyles, waste of public resources; squandering wealth to enrich the family and cronies. You fought against all that.”

“We are committed to honour that promise. So, let us remain positive. It has been 11 months and I remain optimistic. Let us pray we will succeed.”

“We welcome your support through your statements, supporting our positive policies and criticising us when we tend to be either sluggish or deviate from what we promised,” he said.

He also sarcastically said that the past and PAS governments did not provide such freedom in reference to the former BN government.
