Pas, Pakatan MPs join fray

THE Barisan Nasional has found unlikely allies in some Pas and Parti Keadilan Rakyat MPs who are uncomfortable over DAP chairman Karpal Singh's recent comments about the royalty.

They are understood to have indicated this to DAP MPs, including party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, at a lunch meeting yesterday.

Playing down unhappiness among Pakatan Rakyat members over the Bukit Gelugor MP's statements, the Penang chief minister and Bagan MP said no decision had been taken on the matter.

PAS secretary-general Datuk Kamaruddin Jaafar said the party found Karpal's statements "discomforting".

"But we are not going after him for making the statements," he said in the Parliament lobby.

Kamaruddin said the party's stand was clear that it accepted the system of a constitutional monarchy where rulers had a greater role than royalty in other countries

dare to believe the so called statements will be out even before the uncle who selling roti in my neighbourhood woke up early in the morning if such nuisance came from barisan nasional side
