Kedah exco man quits following allegations
There are plenty of allegations against Kedah exco member V.Arumugam, whose resignation has been accepted by the Kedah MB. The allegations relating his marital status have even been brought up to the attention of the Kedah palace. PKR officials have confirmed that these allegations were one main reason for Arumugam's decision to quit his exco seat.The pressure is mounting for him to quit his state seat but that would mean a by-election, which even Pakatan Rakyat leaders do not have the appetite at this point. Certainly, not the BN either.Meanwhile, Arumugam continued to be incommunicado to the media and PR officials. Even the Kedah MB told reporters at a press conference that he has been unable to reach him. He is said to be on leave but no one is able to verify it.
