Nalla pledges support for the PM (THE STAR 22/05/08)

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s estranged friend and former tennis partner Datuk Nalla Karupan met with Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi Wednesday to pledge his full support for the Prime Minister.

He said the meeting with Abdullah lasted only for five minutes, as the Prime Minister was very busy.

“He said he would fix another appointment,” Nalla told reporters at the Parliament lobby. Nalla denied that Abdullah was a weak leader, and on his way out.

“To me, he is a good leader. That’s why I have come to support him,” he said.
