Selangor state reps rally behind Pakatan

The 24-member Selangor Backbenchers Club today pledged their loyalty to Pakatan Rakyat and threw its support behind Selangor MB Khalid Ibrahim. At the press conference in the Selangor State Secretariat annexe building this morning, the state assemblypersons condemned the actions of the three MPs - Zahrain Hashim (Bayan Baru), Tan Tee Beng (Nibong Tebal) and Mohsin Fadzli Samsuri, who defected from PKR recently. NONEIn the statement read by Selangor BBC deputy chairperson Abdul Rani Osman (left), the club said the actions of the three former PKR MPs as betraying the mandate of the people and as a part of a BN 'conspiracy' to destroy Pakatan. They believed that the three parliamentarians are motivated by monetary gains.

Eight of the 24 Selangor BBC members were present at the press conference today.

This joint declaration of loyalty comes hot in the heels of 40 state representatives from Penang who made a similar declaration yesterday.
