SHAH ALAM: Kapar member of Parliament S. Manikavasagam’s move to quit Parti Keadilan Rakyat left some Pakatan Rakyat leaders hot and worried.

Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said yesterday that the PKR supreme council member should step down as an MP and recontest as an independent candidate in a by-election.

“He has betrayed the people who elected him under the Keadilan ticket,” he said after launching Jom Sertai Pas (Let’s Join Pas) campaign here.
