As Pakatan Harapan, like its predecessor Pakatan Rakyat, is infamous for creating and spreading fake news, the Kedah Barisan Nasional has mobilised its social media activists to dispel lies spread by the opposition bloc.

State Barisan chief and Kedah Menteri Besar Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah said the role of social media activists or cyber troopers was important in defending Barisan policies and struggles.

“Our cyber troopers will fight back all the lies and slanders spread by the opposition against the Barisan government,” he told newsmen on Sunday.

He said winning the psychological cyber war was equally as important as winning the traditional battles in next general election (GE14) as the cyber war would be heated up by the opposition bloc playing up many issues.

He called on the voters not to be misled by the lies spread by the opposition, adding that Barisan had a proven track record in developing the country and looking after the people’s welfare.

According to NST, Kedah Barisan was all ready to face GE14 anytime as it had put all its machinery on alert.
