We were offered cash, claim Kedah PKR reps
ALOR SETAR: Two PKR assemblymen in Kedah claimed they were offered money to leave Pakatan Rakyat and become Independents after the March general election.
Lim Soo Nee (Kulim) and Tan Show Kang (Sidam) claimed that the offer of several millions of ringgit was made many times by the same man.
“The man last offered me money about a month ago. He offered a large sum of money to leave Pakatan Rakyat and become an Independent assemblyman. I do not know the man,” Tan told reporters at the official declaration ceremony of Pokok Sena as the state’s 12th district yesterday.
Lim said he was also offered a large sum of money but the man stopped making the offer after several months.
Lim and Tan said they reported the matter to the PKR headquarters.
