PETALING JAYA: PKR deputy president Azmin Ali has blamed Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and Umno over an attack on the party’s bus that is being used for the party’s “Jelajah Rakyat Merdeka” campaign.

“The culture of gangsterism and threats has been the practice and main weapon of enemies, especially Umno to curb PKR and Pakatan Rakyat’s march forward.

“Najib’s silence clearly approves these actions. It is a culture brought by Najib,” he said.

“Even former prime ministers Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Abdullah Ahmad Badawi never protected gangsters,” he told a press conference at the PKR headquarters this morning.

The “Jelajah Rakyat Merdeka” campaign is a PKR initiative led by Opposition Leader and PKR advisor Anwar Ibrahim to garner support from the masses.

In the 4.30am incident that took place in Kota Bharu, Kelantan, the bus was splashed with red paint and its windscreen cracked.

The attackers threw bricks towards the front left corner of the bus, specifically aiming at the bus driver.

A police report on the attack was lodged at 5.15am.

The bus is currently on the way to Grik which marks Anwar’s campaign in Perak.
