SHAH ALAM, 5 March 2009: Selangor Umno Youth today distributed to the media compact discs containing footage of the fracas involving several Umno Youth leaders and DAP chairperson Karpal Singh in Parliament on 26 Feb.
Selangor Umno Youth chief Abdul Shukor Idrus said the recording would give a true picture of who had actually started the incident.
“The fracas was started by the DAP Member of Parliament who was so aggressive in demonstrating bad behaviour to the people,” he told a news conference which was also attended by Selangor Umno chief Tan Sri Muhammad Muhd Taib.
Abdul Shukor also denied that Karpal was roughed up, saying that “not even a single hair on his head was touched.”
“If there were those who claimed that they had been hit, it was only from the wave of hands during the commotion,” he said. — Bernama
