DAP: We are not working to set up Islamic state - NST

IPOH: 14 April 2008

DAP is not working with or supporting Pas to set up an Islamic state or implement hudud laws.
Party adviser Lim Kit Siang said they did not have any direct connection or agreement with Pas but that changed after the March 8 polls when DAP, Pas and PKR made inroads and took five states.

"Our common aim is to fight for justice, transparency, integrity, good governance and greater democracy, and not creating an Islamic state," he said at a Forum Perdana Bersama Rakyat here on Saturday.

Various issues were raised at the meeting including Indah Water Konsortium's service, the shifting of the Ipoh land office from the city, different water rates for those staying in condominiums and parking facilities for the disabled.

Perak executive councillor Ngeh Koo Ham said the tripartite government wanted to make the state economically strong.
"The state wants to create more jobs," he added
