Stone and eggs were thrown at a PKR ceramah near flats in Lembah Pantai last night and one senior citizen, a PKR supporter, was injured.
Among those speaking at the ceramah were Anwar and his daughter Nurul Izzah, the MP for Lembah Pantai.
Lawyer Fadiah Nadwa tweeted:
UMNO Lembah Pantai baling telur,baling batu di ceramah PKR.Mana akhlak?Hina sehina-hinanya.

Power supply was also interrupted and the speakers “sabotaged”, according to a tweet by Nurul Izzah. She added that she also spoke to Shah Alam Khalid Samad and found out that his tyres had been slashed.
The TV Selangor website reported that several groups of Mat Rempits revved their engines in a bid to disrupt the PKR speeches.
Another ceramah organised by Umno-Tibai was being held close to the site of the PKR ceramah.
A tweet by a ronasin sums it up: “Lembah Pantai memang daerah unik sebab di situ ada hujan batu dan telur. Dulu ada lembu dalam kondo.”
Irrationality – by a minority who perhaps have a lot to lose – rules the day. A sign of increasing desperation ahead of the coming general election.
I wonder how Utusan and TV3 are going to report this.
