BN reps to boycott next Kelantan assembly sitting

 | November 23, 2017

This is in protest of the marching orders given to state opposition chief Nozula Mat Diah today.

Md-Alwi-sidang-dun1KOTA BHARU: The 12 Barisan Nasional assemblymen in Kelantan will be boycotting the next state assembly sitting.

Kelantan BN secretary Md Alwi Che Ahmad said they were resorting to the action following the decision by assembly Speaker Abdullah Ya’kub to give the marching orders to state opposition chief Nozula Mat Diah (BN-Paloh) during today’s sitting.

“Even though Yang Berhormat Paloh (Nozula) has yet to fully recover from a stroke, he made the effort to be present to speak up for his constituents. The speaker’s action was uncalled for,” Alwi said in a statement here tonight.

He said that the action showed PAS’ fears having to answer to the people after its dismal performance in managing the state.

Nozula had questioned the PAS-led Kelantan government on the deforestation of about 200,000 hectares and the concern among the Orang Asli community in his constituency over the state government’s proposal to build the Nenggiri Dam.

The speaker had ordered him to leave the hall after he refused to sit while a state executive councillor was winding up the debate. The sitting, which began on Monday, ended today.
