BOO to the cilakas!!!!!
DAP chairperson Karpal Singh was today mobbed by a crowd of angry Umno Youth members at the Parliament lobby, wanting him to apologise for his remarks and accusation made against the movement yesterday.
In the incident which happened at about 2.30pm, the angry Umno Youth members stopped Karpal from entering the House.
About 20 to 30 Umno Youth members were involved. They were believed to be from Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.
Karpal then made a telephone call to his party colleague Fong Pu Kuan who was in the House. She then arrived with other DAP MPs to ‘protect' the DAP chairperson from the crowd.
The DAP MPs also complained that the Parliament security personnel had not done anything to protect Karpal until they (the DAP MPs) made some noise.
DAP MP Lim Lip Eng (right) also claimed that he was assaulted by the Umno Youth crowd.
According to the MP, he was hit a number time on the face and his body.
In an immediate reaction, Speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia expressed regret over the incident, which he said was the first time such an act had happened in Parliament.
He said that he would be instructing the Home Ministry to investigate the matter.
"And I will make sure that such an incident doesn't recur," he told reporters.
