Commotion breaks out at PKR Youth congress

AYER KEROH: A commotion broke out at the PKR Youth congress here this morning, with over 100 delegates pushing and shoving at the entrance of the event hall at the Melaka International Trade Centre where top party leaders are scheduled to gather for the party’s national convention this weekend.

Shouts of “buka pintu” (open the door) could be heard, while one of the delegates was seen fighting with a member of the PKR security team before they were pulled apart by other attendees.

The members are still trying to force their way in.

When contacted, PKR Youth communications director Wong Chun Yuan said only delegates with proper tags would be allowed to enter the hall.

“We will resume entry after the situation is under control,” he said.
