The KL mayor estimates the clean-up bill for the Red Shirts rally would come up to about RM50,000. Alam Flora is supposed to be doing the costing. But Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Rahman Dahlan says the bill is RM38,000 and Alam Flora has confirmed the amount. Everyone could see in photos the piles of trash left behind by the rally goers. And Alam Flora personnel were photographed being deployed during the event.


Update: It was also a no show at Komtar, where the group was supposed to stage a protest after the Friday solat prayer. In the event, only light strike force and other police personnel were present.

No one turned up for a protest at the Aliran office around noon today despite a notice having been circulated over social media saying a silat group would be staging a demonstration outside the reform group’s premises in Jelutong, Penang.
