KULIM, 9 April (Bernama) -- Anggota Parlimen (MP) Padang Serai

N.Gobalakrishnan memohon jasa baik Pengerusi Barisan Nasional (BN) Datuk Seri

Najib Tun Razak membenarkan beliau menjadi calon BN bagi mempertahankan kerusi

kawasan itu pada pilihan raya umum ke-13 (PRU-13).

Beliau memenangi kerusi Parlimen Padang Serai atas tiket PKR pada pilihan

raya umum 2008 dan mengumumkan keluar parti itu dan menjadi Anggota Parlimen

bebas awal tahun lepas.

Gobalakrishnan yang juga Presiden Pertubuhan Kebajikan Masyarakat Malaysia

(Perkemas) berkata beliau berharap permohonan itu dapat dipertimbangkan

berdasarkan kerja keras beliau bertungkus lumus sejak lebih tiga tahun lalu

berkhidmat kepada masyarakat pelbagai kaum di kawasan tersebut.

“Selepas saya keluar daripada PKR, berbagai program diatur untuk kemudahan

penduduk sekitar Lunas dan Paya Besar dan telah ramai pengundi-pengundi yang

satu ketika dulu condong kepada pembangkang kini menyokong kerajaan BN," katanya

kepada pemberita di Paya Besar di sini hari ini.

Hadir sama pada majlis tersebut adalah Penasihat Undang-Undang Perkemas

Saiful Ambar Abdullah Ambar dan Presiden Pertubuhan Tolak Individu Bernama Anwar

Ibrahim (TIBAI) Kedah Khairul Anuar Ramli.

Katanya jika hasratnya tidak menjadi kenyataan, beliau berharap isterinya

M.Vasanthi, 53, akan menjadi calon alternatif.

Beliau yakin Naib Presiden PKR R. Surendran yang diumumkan sebagai calon

PKR bagi kerusi Parlimen itu oleh Ketua Umumnya Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, akan

hilang wang pertaruhannya kerana kemunculan Surendran membawa isu-isu lapuk

mengenai masyarakat India tempatan sejak sebulan dua lalu memualkan masyarakat

di sini.

    MH370 steward's daughter 'blessed' with Liverpool kit

    The daughter of the chief steward aboard the missing Malaysian jet has thanked Liverpool fans for giving her a signed jersey in honour of her football-mad father, in a story that has captured the nation's hearts. Maira Elizabeth Nari -- who has become a social media phenomenon in Malaysia for her poignant posts refusing to give up hope of finding her father alive -- said three Malaysian Liverpool fans "went through a few obstacles" to get the shirt signed by the club's players and manager after a recent game at Anfield. "Feeling so blessed! I've no clue how to thank all of you," the 17-year-old wrote as she posted a picture of the shirt over the weekend, which has been shared on Twitter nearly 3,500 times. The teenager said she would frame the red jersey, which bears the name of her father Andrew Nari, who was working as chief steward on flight MH370 when it vanished on March 8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

    Nadal crashes in Monte Carlo, Federer faces Djokovic

    Eight-time champion Rafael Nadal slumped to a shock Monte Carlo Masters quarter-final defeat to compatriot David Ferrer on Friday while Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic struggled into a semi-final showdown. Ferrer claimed a famous 7-6 (7/1), 6-4 win to hand the top seed only his third loss in the principality just a day after Nadal had won his 300th career claycourt match and 50th at the Monte Carlo Country Club. Meanwhile Federer, bidding to win the title for the first time, squandered his first 15 break points before finally coming good on a 16th on his way to a 2-6, 7-6 (8/6), 6-1 defeat of French ninth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Defending champion Djokovic was then taken to three sets by Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain before the Serb second seed finally won 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 on his fourth match point and more than two hours of battle.

I played very well in spite of the wind," Wawrinka told Canal Plus TV.
