From Malaysiakini Arumugam quits, by-election in Bkt Selambau
Hmmm, could it be that Aru read my post and changed his mind about hanging on as an ADUN wakakaka
I won't go into Aru's real (personal not political) reason for his resignation as I don't intend to discuss his personal 'difficulties' - if you're interested, go over to Malaysian Insider for more, which also quoted Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak as saying: "Arumugam told him [HRH Sultan of Kedah] that he was relinquishing the post due to personal reasons and that it has nothing to do with the Pas leadership."
Suffice to say, his position as a politician became politically untenable due to his 'personal' issues.
Malaysiakini - Arumugam quits exco post, remains state rep.
Bloke claims he was threatened by BN to switch – humongous pressure - first made that accusation after the recent Perak froggie imbroglio.
Question: Why not make his accusation much earlier? Why wait until Anwar was under pressure for the PKR Perak debable and most embarrassing of all, his pitiful premature eulogy of Nasarudin Hashim’s defection as reflecting “... the sentiments of his voters, namely the Malays in his constituency ... as the beginning of a new wave.”
... and then there’s that implausible RM50 million man too - wakakaka again ...
... they seemed to all emerge at the same time from some decaying woodpiles the moment Anwar was in deep embarrassment. Alamak, one Gobala (of the phantom bus fame) is already one Tok Ampu too many lah wakakaka
Arumugam claimed he couldn’t tahan the pressure from BN for him to jump across, so ….?
Yes, so one would imagine that he would want to resign completely from politics.
But in Star Online PKR state training bureau chairman Zambri Yusuf said:
“Arumugam has decided to quit his position as an exco due to the mounting pressure on him and his family to defect to Barisan Nasional.”
And Malaysiakini confirmed he had resigned only as an exco, but will continue as Bukit Selambau state assemblyperson.
Now, how the f* is that half pregnant resignation going to help relieve the BN pressure off him? Afterall, if BN wants him, they would only be interested in his position as an ADUN, not as an exco.
His story is totally implausible!
… as implausible as the Bala story!
One doesn’t expect every politician to be as courageous as Karpal Singh, but if an ADUN cannot even take the alleged pressure from the other side, then Aru should resign from politics altogether – his constituency would be better off with a representative of more sterling qualities.
But I smell other stuff ..... wakakaka.
