The PKR de facto leader attended five Chinese New Year open houses in the span of 12 hours and got a warm reception.
Hundreds of people who gathered at the Batu PKR Chinese New Year open houses gave the de facto PKR leader an enthusiastic reception.
The emcee of the event, when announcing Anwar’s arrival, threw the question to some 700 people at the SJK (C) Jinjang Selatan.
“Are you ready for Anwar?” he asked twice, and the crowd shouted “Yes”.
This was in marked contrast to the one Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak received in Penang on Sunday, where a number of people were heard responding “No” when Najib asked them whether they were ready for Barisan Nasional.
However, Anwar’s lightning visit to the open houses indicates that he is not too sure of Chinese support towards Pakatan.
In a span of 12 hours, Anwar visited Bandar Tun Razak, Sri Rampai, Wangsa Maju, Batu, Bangsar and Setiawangsa – all for Chinese New Year open houses organised by local PKR offices.
Why would Anwar spent so much time and effort wooing the Chinese when all the areas, except Setiawangsa, were already won by PKR in 2008?
