Our observer reported that Gopeng Road where UMNO Hq is, is still closed to public traffic since Thursday 5th Feb-as if it belongs to UMNO! This is an abuse of power!
Actually this shows the defensiveness of UMNO-they concede that the Perakians have a good complaints against their power grabs! On their part they try to shore up their position by protestinbg against Karpal Singh who suggested to sue the Perak Sultan in relation to his refusal to dissolve the State Assembly. Well why was it not done in Ipoh? A report earlier actually say that nobody show up for an earlier pro-sultan rally in Ipoh. Even the one in KL they have to bus in `protestors’ (or rent a crowd?) from 5 states. Even then they only get 1000 person. They should ask if the 8000 or more crowds in front of Nizar’s residence was given any incentive to come!
