Khalid: I am not victimised

SHAH ALAM: Khalid Ibrahim has denied talks that he is being victimised in the episode transpiring from the Kajang state seat by election leading to speculation that Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim would replace him as Selangor Menteri Besar.

He said the yet-to-be announced Kajang by-election, following the resignation of its assemblyman Lee Chin Cheh of PKR on Monday, was a continuous effort of the opposition pact to gain confidence and respect from the people as a whole.
“I don’t think I am unfairly treated in the whole episode (following Lee’s resignation).

“Because of this (by-election), there is a clue (it would appear) we are creating inconvenience to the people of Kajang, but politics must be followed through and the people of Kajang have the opportunity to make a choice.
“With regards to politics, it is always trying to influence people,” he told reporters after attending a briefing on i-City’s space mission programme at i-City here yesterday.
Abdul Khalid was commenting on rumours that he would resign as menteri  besar to make way for Anwar to replace him, following the opposition leader’s candidacy in the Kajang state seat.
Lee, who resigned from the seat on Monday, reportedly said the decision was taken “in the common interest of all and to strengthen Pakatan’s ability to serve the people”.
