Dr Mahathir spoke at the open house held at the MBI Desaku Convention Hall attended by 20,000 people, says Bernama.

In the past weeks, both Dr Mahathir and Prime Minister to be, are on a mission to counter the opposition’s campaign that the Pakatan government is not efficient, is inexperienced and does not deserve to be in power.

Anwar is making rounds in universities and open houses to tell the people while he is not a Cabinet minister and do not have any official role in the government, he is still a Pakatan member.

As such, he says, he is the forbearer of information garnered from the corridors of power and he believes the country has seen a lot of changes since last year.

Anwar says he is not a propagandist for the Pakatan regime but today people are free to attack the government whereas under Najib Razak, the fallen PM, some top shot would call up students and lecturers who dare criticise the Barisan Nasional regime.

“They will come and call you up,” he says.

Anwar made similar speeches at several universities, answering tough questions from students and taking on criticism against him and the Pakatan regime.

He says the people ought to see the difference between the Barisan days and the Pakatan rule where people are now free to criticise and speak their minds.

He says he himself was barred from entering Universities to speak to students but now he is able to do so after some students asked him why is the not using the local broadcasting channels such as the government controlled Radio Television to explain the government’s narrative.
