Supporters of Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin and his state executive council members must be able to differentiate between government functions and political gatherings, said Perak PKR chief Ismail Yusop.
Citing Nizar’s ongoing working visits to the various districts, Ismail said the followers seemed to have confused government functions with those of party events.
“There have been occasions when people were carrying party flags at government functions,” he said after the Perak PKR Youth convention here yesterday.
He said this could make civil servants feel out of place if government events turned out to be political gatherings.
Ismail said Pakatan Rakyat was still in the “learning process.”
“We must remember that we are now in power and no longer in the opposition,” he added.
