: The principles and struggles of UMNO which champions the dignity of Muslims and Islam all these while make the party likable to PAS, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
He said this was because, PAS which was bullied by DAP in the opposition pact prior to this, had seen UMNO from the aspect of welfare and administration which profited Muslims greatly.
“Regardless, we have our differences of opinions, the government under UMNO has its principle of struggle and they (PAS) see our struggle as leaning toward the importance of Muslim dignity.
"PAS has had enough of DAP, it was bullied when it was with DAP, so much so it gave up and ran away,” he said.
He said this in his speech at the state-level Prime Minister breaking-the-fast with the people programme and the national-level launching of the Kampung Fasa 8 (JLJK8) street lights at Pering Mosque here today.
Also present was the prime minister’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
