SHAH ALAM, 29 May: The immediate membership suspension of Badrul Hisham Shahrin, or better known as Chegu Bard, yesterday from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) will not break his spirit to fight together with the party.
Chegu Bard, in a short message system (SMS) text, told Selangor Kini that he will continue with PKR and is confident that he will obtain justice.
“PKR is my house and i will remain. I am confident that PKR is a party for reform and there will certainly be justice,” he said.
He also informed that he is still waiting for an official letter from the party regarding his suspension before commenting further.
He said that the suspension was only found out when many reporters contacted him to confirm the matter.
“There is no pillar that can stop the fight to ensure that democracy does not die.
“The rest, I will wait for the official letter from the party because I have not received any information as I was only informed by friends who are journalists,” he said.
Yesterday, the PKR Disciplinary Board informed that Chegu Bard, also the Chairman of Malaysian Youth Solidarity (SAMM), was suspended until further investigation is carried out on his offence when the election is completed.
The PKR Disciplinary Board Chairman, Datuk Dr Tan Kee Kwong, said that the decision to suspend Chegu Bard’s membership was decided by the party Disciplinary Board, which was chaired by the PKR President, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Ismail, during the political bureau meeting on May 27.
Apart from Chegu Bard, PKR also suspended the membership of M.Nageswaran from the Kota Raka branch for six months.
Meanwhile, the member of the Pasir Salak branch, Yusop Kamaruddin, had his membership withdrawn following his refusal to acknowledge the suspension letter.
