JERLUN – Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Tun Dr Mahathir said he accepts whatever decision involving following the political development in the state and the pressure on him to relinquish his position.
At the same time, he called on the people of Kedah, especially his supporters, to remain calm concerning the current development and to refrain from creating chaos.
He said whatever transpired in the crisis, let the decision be one that was the best for Kedah and the country.
“I’m always ready (come what may)…I’ll leave it to Allah, sooner or later (the change will happen), I believe the truth will prevail,” he said at a community programme in Kampung Sanglang here Tuesday night.
“I’m not afraid of any possible action to be taken against me. I believe everything happens for a reason,” he stressed.
The political atmosphere in Kedah has heated up in the last few days when Mukhriz came under pressure from several Kedah state assemblymen and members of Parliament as well as Umno senior state leaders led by Ahmad Bashah who openly voiced they had lost confidence in Mukhriz as Menteri Besar and state Umno Liaison Committee chairman.
