HRP: Anti-Bersih protest at PAS HQ 'not Hindraf'

(Malaysiakini) HRP's S Jayathas has denied a news report that their supporters were behind the 30 youths reported to have demonstrated in front of the PAS headquarters in Kuala Lumpur against the Bersih 2.0 rally.

Bernama had reported that the youths “claiming to be Hindraf supporters” showed up at the opposition party's HQ at Jalan Raja Laut at about 11.20am bearing banners 'Datuk Ambiga Jangan Buat Kecoh Di Malaysia' (Ambiga Don't Create Disorder in Malaysia) and 'Jangan Ikut Nik Aziz' (Don't Follow Nik Aziz).

“However, they were seen fleeing the area in several cars about 10 minutes later when the police arrived,” reported the national news agency.

Jayathas when contacted told Malaysiakini, “Hindraf has nothing to do with it, it's not our style to run away from police.”

“We are waiting for the 18 points of demand over constitutional right to be endorsed by the Pakatan (Rakyat)... if they give the green light, we will be in the frontline of the Bersih 2.0 rally,” said Jayathas.
