Kapar MP denies will quit PKR today
Kapar MP S. Manikavasagam has again denied swirling speculation that he will announce his resignation from PKR this evening.
“The rumour is false. False, false, I will be with PKR no matter what happens to me, whether disciplinary action or the Selcat decision,” he told The Malaysian Insider.
Asked if he was attending a scheduled press conference in Shah Alam this evening, Manikavasagam said he did not know anything about it.
“I just came from meeting my constituents. I don’t know who is spreading this information.
“I am not a coward, I will not run away from my responsibilities in PKR,” he said, adding “I have already made my stand clear to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim early this week”.
This is not the first time that the MP has been linked to speculation that he will leave the party.
He received a notice yesterday from state watchdog Selangor Select Committee on Competency, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) over his allegations of graft in state sand mining concessionaire Kumpulan Semesta Sdn Bhd.
Rumours spread through text messages and the Internet claimed the first-term MP will announce he is leaving PKR at a Shah Alam hotel at 2pm today.
The rumours also said two Kedah state assemblymen will be at the media conference.
The Kedah Pakatan Rakyat government is holding a rally tonight to dispel speculation that it’s unstable or several assemblymen will leave to force a dissolution of the state assembly or a change of government.
PKR had already lost two assemblymen in Kedah since Election 2008.
Rumours of Manikavasagam possible resignation has reached a feverish pitch after he revealed possible graft in the sand mining industry.
PKR has lost a total of five assemblymen and six federal seats through walkouts by four MPs, the sacking of one and the Hulu Selangor loss, all of which happened since last February.
He will not resign, but some way or other he might try his best to get himself sacked from PKR and Pakatan. This is to safe his " maruah" as a "responsible MP". At the same
time he might be getting the benefits for jumping ship.
This is only a hypothetical theory, but if it is true the nation should pee on him especially the indians.
To our laymen s knowledge he has been a respectable leader but vociferous not knowing how to use existing internal party means in bringing up issues.
The current issue depicts that either he has been bought over or he is sincere but childish in the approach or even boisterous to show he is great.
What ever it is, PKR pick your candidates wisely in future who are more responsibly matured.
'We had high esteem on you man. Don't disappoint us. Be matured and solve issues responsibly for the people, party and country"
