(TMI) - DAP chairman Karpal Singh has challenged P. Waythamoorthy to step down from his post as the Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department.
According to The Star, Karpal said Waythamoorthy should resign in view of public interest.
“Since his stand is incongruous with that of police, I challenge him to step down from his ministerial post,” said Karpal at a press conference in Air Itam yesterday.
He added that since Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had called for Waythamoorthy to quit, then Waythamoorthy, as a man of principle, should do just that.
Ahmad Zahid was reported to have said yesterday that Waythamoorthy should resign from his Cabinet position "if he wants to act like a representative of a non-governmental organisation".
