The ruckus in the Parliament lobby where a group of angry Umno Youth supporters confronted Karpal this afternoon was disgraceful.
DAP MP for Segambut Lim Lip Eng alleged that he was assaulted and hit a number of times on the face and his body.
This incident reveals a breach of parliamentary security. Why did DAP MPs have to come to Karpal’s rescue? What happened to the security personnel on duty?
That’s strange. Last time we heard, security in Parliament was so overwhelming that a group of young Jerit cyclists had a herculean task just trying to reach the front gate.
I don’t mean that Parliament should be swarming with security personnel, but those who are stationed there should make sure that no one is intimidated or in fear of his or her personal safety.
All this playing to the gallery has got to stop. We have enough drama as it is.
