IPOH, Dec 4 (Bernama) — DAP Perak takes responsibility for the actions of several party leaders who had stepped on a poster bearing the facial images of three Independent Perak state assemblymen last Sunday.
Its chairman, Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham, said their leaders including Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan Eng, as well as Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) and PAS leaders who were invited to the convention should not be blamed.
He said Perak DAP also issued an apology to all Malaysians who were offended by the actions.
“As the door mat was placed across the entrance to the convention hall, all persons entering the hall will have to step on the door mat. Umno leaders have singled out Lim Kit Siang for attack. This is totally unjustified and it clearly shows their lack of a sense of justice,” he said in a statement, here.
He said the door mat was not placed by Lim Kit Siang and other leaders, and all persons entering the convention hall would have also stepped on the door mat.
At the Perak DAP convention on Nov 29, the poster bearing the images of Hee Yit Fong (Jelapang), Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi (Behrang) and Osman Jailu (Changkat Jering) was placed on the floor at the entrance so that delegates who attended the convention would step on their photographs.
Hee was formerly from the DAP while Jamaluddin and Mohd Osman were from Parti Keadilan Rakyat.
