Some 50000 people reportedly turned up for a Pakatan ceramah at the Sultan Muhamed VI Stadium in Kota Bharu last night – signalling that the BN is not going to find it easy to recapture the state.

In an important announcement, Anwar promised that if Pakatan captures federal power, it would reduce oil prices, grant Kelantan royalties for petroleum extracted offshore from the state, and abolish PTPTN loans and provide free education.

It would be better though if Pakatan leaders were to stress that a Pakatan government would improve public transport – instead of focusing on a reduction in car prices and the price of petrol for private motor vehicles, which only add to the problem of climate change.
