De facto Parti Keadilan Rakyat leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim should take care of troubled waters in Pakatan-led states, instead of dreaming of taking over Putrajaya.

Selangor Barisan Nasional coordinator Datuk Seri Mohd Zin Mohamed said the opposition leader seemed to have forgotten that Pakatan Rakyat parties were facing various problems.

"How can he be sure that the opposition can take over Putrajaya from BN if Pakatan has trouble even fielding their candidates to be the next Selangor menteri besar?.



"Now that parliament has been dissolved, we don't even know whether current Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim is going to contest or not.

"If yes, then what about Gombak member of parliament Azmin Ali, who also wants a taste of the power?" he told the New Straits Times.

Zin said talk had also surfaced about Parti Keadilan Rakyat president Datin Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail contesting in Hulu Selangor.

"With three major figures contesting in Selangor, who will they choose to lead the election machinery later ?

"The opposition is facing some serious structural problems in their own coalition, so, they should know that it is time to mind their own business -- especially Anwar."

Anwar had responded to the dissolution of Parliament yesterday by saying that it would 'pave the way for the opposition to conquer Putrajaya".

Speaking after an electoral briefing involving the BN machinery in Puchong yesterday, Zin said the coalition was confident of a power shift in Selangor.

"Looking at the amount of work, dedication and research that has been done in Selangor, I am confident that BN will take over the state from Pakatan.

"This year, BN Selangor will be focusing on direct engagement campaigning and there will be home visits.

"At the same time, we have set up a service centre with telephone operators. People can just call to ask questions or lodge complaints and we will attend to them," he said.
