Press statement on fake DAP & PAS banners

Press Statement dated 8 April 2013

Over the last weekend of 6-7 April 2013, banners purportedly bearing messages from DAP and PAS have sprung up all across DUN Subang Jaya. These banners bearing photographs of Sdr Lim Kit Siang and Dato' Seri Haji Abdul Hadi bin Awang with their respective party symbols carry different political messages which are aimed to mislead voters ahead of the 13th General Elections. 

Pakatan Rakyat Kelana Jaya detects the work of our political opponents here and strongly condemns such cowardice act of impersonation and manipulation. We call upon our political opponents, Barisan Nasional Kelana Jaya and the prospective candidates from MCA and UMNO to commit to a clean campaign. Even before the start of official campaigning, Barisan Nasional Kelana Jaya has already displayed the nature of dirty campaigning which they will be resorting to. We pledge a clean and fair elections and we in Pakatan Rakyat will not tolerate anything less.

DAP banners and flags have also gone missing within a day of being displayed for the launch of our elections operations centre while BN flags remain untouched. Why is MCA and UMNO Kelana Jaya so afraid of the DAP flag? We in Pakatan Rakyat Kelana Jaya are amazed that BN has not learned its lesson from 2008. They should not fear our flags, but instead fear the power of the people.  

We hereby remind Barisan Nasional Kelana Jaya to stop employing dirty tricks and it is about time that the leaders of MCA Kelana Jaya begin assuming responsibility for the misconduct of their members and supporters. Our residents and supporters in Subang Jaya have been placed on high alert and will be monitoring the streets right up to polling day. We will not hesitate in naming and shaming the responsible culprits should they conjure up more dirty tricks.
