Selangor MB takes tabloid to task for articles

By : Mazlinda Mahmood


Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim has taken an English daily to task today for articles entitled ‘Rift in Pakatan’ and ‘Kapar MP free to go, says Khalid’.

In a press statement from his office, he said nothing was mentioned on ‘Kapar MP is free to go’ as suggested in the article.

“During the press conference, I said the Kapar MP was free to make his own decision and that he was mature enough to make a good decision as a representative to more than 100,000 voters in his constituency and a member of PKR.

“I also repeatedly stated that the best forum to thrash out issues would be the party’s political bureau,” he said.

He stated that at no time during a short press conference at The Curve on Dec 27, after opening the state’s Christmas celebration, did he said that ‘he was not interested to meet Kapar member of Parliament S. Manikavasagam’.
He had instead said that as a parliamentarian, ‘it would be a better avenue for the MP to meet the party’s leaders’ when asked if he was willing to meet the Kapar MP.

Abdul Khalid, in the statement said that he took the distortion of facts seriously.
