‘Zuraidah has no right to meddle’

Trouble is brewing in the Hulu Selangor District Council as resentment mounts over the alleged interference of a parliamentarian.

KUALA KUBU BARU: The Hulu Selangor District Council (MDHS) is seeing red over Ampang MP Zuraidah Kamaruddin’s alleged interference in the council’s internal issues.

A disgruntled MDHS officer told FMT that Zuraidah was constantly interfering in the council’s decisions although she had “no business” doing so.

Speaking to FMT, the officer, who declined to be named, said the latest incident involved a meeting which the president had called to appoint committee members for the tender quotation committee.

“Zuraidah called up our president Tukiman Nail and ordered him to postpone the meeting. This is not the first time she has done this. She has interfered in other internal council matters as well.

“It is very frustrating. She has no business doing this,” he said, adding that Zuraidah was always making arbitrary decisions in matters involving MDHS without discussing with the council.

A quick FMT check revealed that the MDHS letter of invitation for the meeting was sent to four district council members and copied to PKR Hulu Selangor division.

The letter, however, omitted former councillor Razali Mokthar, who is believed to be aligned with Zuraidah.

“This whole problem started after Zuraidah became aware that Razali was sidelined. On Jan 13, she called the president and asked him to postpone the meeting. Because she was the PKR women’s chief with influence at the top, Tukiman followed her instruction.

“But my question is, who is she to direct MDHS to defer the meeting? What is her position in the state government?

“As far as we are concerned, she is only a parliamentarian and PKR women chief. Is that enough for her to control the council?” he asked.

He urged Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim to step in and probe Zuraidah’s misconduct.

Meanwhile, efforts to reach the PKR Hulu Selangor chief Nazar Yakin for further details were futile. - FMT
