The assemblyman had repeatedly said he was not resigning as a state represenative and had refuted suggestions by his critics that there has been a lot of complaints regarding his performance.
Carrying banners and placards, the crowd, led by PKR Youth deputy chief Lee Khai Loon, were ready to hand over a memorandum to Badrul but the assemblyman refused to see them or come out of the building.
Policemen standing by
When the mentri besar’s political secretary Nik Nazmi Ahmad came out to receive the memorandum, they refused to hand it to him.
They became more furious, instead. There was, however, no untoward incident with more than 30 plainclothes policemen standing by.
Badrul, accused by the Pakatan Rakyat coalition state government of not carrying out his duties as a state representative in Port Klang, quit the PKR last Thursday and declared himself an independent assemblyman.
He had said then that he had no choice but to resign from the party since it was the only way to ease the pressure from certain leaders who wanted him to quit as assemblyman.
Lost faith in Khalid and Anwar
He also lashed out at Selangor mentri besar Khalid Ibrahim for suggesting that he (Badrul) should resign because of 'non-performance' , alleging that since March, allocations to his constituency had been channeled to a service centre managed by Nik Nazmi.
