Penang Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Teng Chang Yeow should take full responsibility for the its failure to capture the state in the last general election, says Gerakan Central Bureau of Law and Human Rights chairman Baljit Singh.
Teng who is Penang Gerakan chairman should not blame others for BN’s failure in Penang and should be serious in his position as captain of the state BN.
He told reporters that any differences should be resolved through proper channels within the party.
Baljit was commenting on Teng’s statement last Saturday, blaming Umno for the failure of BN to win back the state during previous general election.
On Sunday, Penang Umno liaison chairman Zainal Abidin Osman slammed the Gerakan leader for not openly taking the critic statement issued by Deputy Prime Minister Zahid Hamidi at the Balik Pulau Umno division meeting on last Saturday.
He said the BN component parties in Penang should heed the statement issued by Zahid as a call to make them stronger and unite as a team.
