BN gets violent, disrupt another PR ceramah

On 3 March, BN supporters gate-crashed another Pakatan Rakyat ceramah, this time in Teluk Intan. The intruders, numbering around 40, gatecrashed the function and hurled abuses at the Pakatan Rakyat leaders and supporters.

Following this, the police urged both BN and Pakatan supporters to disperse, citing security concerns. However, with some of the BN supporters lingering around the venue, the event became disrupted.

Teluk Intan MP M Manogaran had to be escorted out of a DAP ceramah session in Teluk Intan town centre by police after the BN supporters disrupted the event. The police then escorted Manogaran out and about 4km east from Teluk Intan town to ensure his safety.

Manogaran said that they were very thuggish and made racist statements to provoke the mostly Chinese and Indian crowd. “They chanted that Teluk Intan was ‘Malay land’ and that we should get out,” he aided.

According to him, the BN supporters were mainly youths, some in their teens, who arrived in a lorry and carrying long bamboo poles with BN flags attached.

“The police could have handled the situation better and dealt firmly with the BN supporters, who were clearly the aggressors. We were there lawfully and the police should have handled the intruders, but they were outnumbered and unprepared,” Manogaran said.

However, he commended Hilir Perak district police chief Goh Kok Liang for being at the scene and being very proactive in engaging with both groups. -The Rocket
