SHAH ALAM: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim offered Pakatan Rakyat’s promise today that the pact’s dream of wresting federal power is not to take revenge but to fulfil the people’s wish for a fair and effective government.
The opposition leader said should Pakatan capture Putrajaya in Election 2013, its plan was not to imprison or unfairly punish its political foes in Barisan Nasional (BN).
Doing so, Anwar (pic) told the audience at Pakatan’s fourth national convention and election manifesto launch here, would neither ensure the country stays peaceful nor lead the nation to a bright future.
“This is important because many have asked... And we repeat – we want to take power not to take revenge or put our enemies in prison.
“We must be strong on this... We want to take power to fulfill the programmes of the people’s agenda and not to take revenge,” he said.
“But what we do need to do... is to take back monies that have been stolen,” he added to loud cheers from the audience at the Shah Alam Convention Centre (SACC) here.
