SHAH ALAM: Dec 29, 2008
Kapar member of parliament S. Manikavasa- gam said Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang was ungrateful and a backstabber for asking him to resign his post as an MP before he had made his final decision.
He said Hadi did not respect him as a Pakatan Rakyat member of parliament when the Pas president suggested that he step down as an MP if he wanted to resign from his post in Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) on Saturday.
"Earlier, it was the menteri besar (Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim) and now it is Hadi. This is not right. They should have discussed it with me.
"I guess they could not wait for me to resign and quit the party even when I have not made a final decision.
"Hadi forgot that the Indian community and I had helped a lot during the last general election.
"Previously, the Indian community did not support Pas but now they are willing to hold Pas flags," he said when contacted yesterday.
Manikavasagam said he would make an official announcement on whether he would quit his party post or otherwise in a press conference on Wednesday.
