KLANG: Batu Caves assemblyman Amirudin Shari (pic) denied allegations saying he had a hand in spreading rumours that Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim is to be replaced.
The allegation was made against him and six others in a police report lodged by a newly-formed group called Pakatan Anak Selangor Menyokong Mentri Besar (Pasmeb) (Alliance of Selangorians Supporting the Mentri Besar) at the Klang North district police headquarters on Saturday.
“My statement was that no individual should claim ownership to the mentri besar’s position as only the Pakatan Rakyat leadership can decide who holds the position,” said Amirudin when contacted.
The other six are Bukit Katil MP Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin, Kuala Langat MP Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid, Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli, Seri Muda assemblyman Mat Shuhaimi Shafiei, PKR deputy president Azmin Ali’s political secretary Najwan Halimi and a Facebooker Habib Mazlan.
None of the others except for Amirudin were available for comment at press time.
Pasmeb has vowed to battle detractors who want Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ahmad to step down.
“We will go on roadshows. We will be telling the public the actual situation as certain quarters have been confusing the masses with the press statements and baseless allegations,” said a Pasmeb core member Mokhtar Razak Badri,
He urged Khalid’s detractors to wise up and realise that party politics and state administration were two different matters.
“Whatever happens within a party internally should not be linked to the state’s administration which Khalid has managed very well since becoming mentri besar,” he added.
