HINDRAF leader to decide on assembly resignation after meeting party chiefMay 3rd, 2009 - 1:56 pm ICT by ANI
Klang (Malaysia), May 3 (ANI): Kota Alam Shah assemblyman and Hindu Rights Action Force (HINDRAF) leader M. Manoharan will decide whether he will quit after meeting party chairman Karpal Singh on May 19.
This was revealed by his wife S. Pushpaneela.
The Star quoted Pushpaneela as saying that her husband had been thinking of quitting because he felt it was unfair to his constituents not to have him in their midst.
“He is feeling very guilty that he cannot serve the 12,699 constituents in Kota Alam Shah,” said Pushpaneela soon after visiting her husband at the Kamunting detention centre yesterday.
She said she had a two-and-a-half hour discussion with her husband on his grievances when she brought over some paperwork.
“I told him I was doing my best to serve his constituents and I tried to talk him out of thinking about resigning,” she said.
Pushpaneela added that Manoharan was feeling dejected over not being able to attend the state assembly sitting.
She said Manoharan had also exhausted all avenues, including writing several letters to the authorities in trying to get his freedom and this was a factor in his consideration. (ANI)
