SHAH ALAM: PKR and DAP have been told to respect the Sultan’s decision to maintain Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim as Mentri Besar.
Newly formed NGO Grassroots Action Based Selangor (GRABS) deputy chief Hanafiah Husin reminded the parties that they should not defy and disrespect the royal institution by persisting in nominating PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as the new leader to helm the state.
“If we look at the social media, we can see that many people, including some opposition leaders, have insulted the royal institution.
“I urge them to re-read the Selangor state constitution before making any further remarks,” he told reporters after protesting with a group of former PKR members at Dataran Shah Alam here late Saturday evening.
GRABS was set up to explain the real situation behind the Mentri Besar crisis.
The members, who all donned dark green T-shirts and chanted “Let’s save Selangor”, later announced their resignation from various PKR branches from all over Selangor.
Hanafiah, who was sacked from the Kota Raja branch last year, said politicians should stop inciting the rakyat to dislike the state government, or let their political problems disrupt the state government’s operation.
”We urge the authorities to monitor the social media for instances where the Sultan is insulted,” he said, adding that Selangoreans could not accept “outsiders” as the new Mentri Besar.
“The people of Selangor will never give their blessings to outsiders to head the state, and we do not want someone appointed because of their family ties,” he said.
GRABS chief Mohd Faisal Idris, who was a former Sabak Bernam branch member, said the state government’s programme could not continue, affecting the rakyat.
“Some of the funds for farmers and those in the rural areas have been stopped, and this has caused confusion.
“We hope that the problem can be solved immediately,” he said.
