“I don’t think Karpal’s statement should be an issue because it’s solely based on his own opinion and as long as it doesn’t affect the PR coalition, it shouldn’t be a problem,” the portal quoted him as saying.
Pakatan is constantly doing this — the shrug-and-wave-away modus operandi. Any time some inter-party disagreement erupts, their various spokesmen would say that the controversial figure made the pronouncement in his personal capacity and divorced from his party.
Karpal is the party chairman and he said what did at a press conference in the hearing of a roomful of reporters. Yet Khalid can construe Karpal’s statement as his personal opinion not reflective of the DAP stand.
Okay. So the next time Najib Razak holds a PC, his statements too can be taken as a personal opinion and not reflecting the stance of Putrajaya.
Oh yeah, about the nickname for the PAS Shah Alam MP. It is ‘Khalid GEREJA‘. Gettit?
