What about your 50ft rocket in Bagan, MCA asks DAP

PETALING JAYA: MCA publicity spokesman Ti Lian Ker has questioned DAP’s use of a 50-foot blow-up display rocket in Bagan, saying the party should look to its own backyard on the issue of party symbols being displayed well ahead of the general election campaign.

The 50ft rocket was placed outside a hall in Bagan “just a day or two before your secretary-general (Lim Guan Eng) and his father (Lim Kit Siang) dared not attend the debate with our deputy president (Wee Ka Siong) on the Penang Tunnel scandal”, said Ti.

The giant 50-foot display rocket in Bagan.

He asked if the Bagan MP (Guan Eng) should also be punished for erecting party logos before official campaigning starts.

DAP’s Lim Lip Eng had asked the authorities earlier today to punish those who put up Barisan Nasional (BN) flags in Kuala Lumpur before nomination day and not just members of the public who destroy the flags.

Three women have been detained by police for allegedly taking down BN flags in Taman Tun Dr Ismail. Police are also investigating a video showing a man removing BN flags in the same area.

Election rules state that public display of flags and posters is part of campaign activity and would be allowed only after the nomination of candidates, on April 28. Balloting takes place on May 9.
