Pakatan Rakyat Selangor announced today that it would mobilise 300,000 people for the Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat scheduled for Jan 12 at Stadium Merdeka.
Selangor PAS commissioner Abdul Rani Osman said that he had informed all his branches and divisions to mobilise its members for the rally.
Speaking at a press conference held at the PKR headquarters, Abdul Rani said: “I hope my fellow PKR and DAP friends from Selangor would urge their members to attend the rally.”
Also present at the press conference were Selangor DAP chief Teresa Kok and state PKR secretary Amirudin Shari.
Rani urged the public to attend the rally, saying that it would be an ideal avenue to voice their grouses against the government.
“Come to Kuala Lumpur a day earlier,” he urged the public, “And please use the public transport to avoid traffic congestions.”
The PAS leader also urged rally participants to maintain decorum at all times during the rally and to be “wary of agent provocateurs on that day”.
Kok criticised the Stadium Merdeka management for dragging its feet in giving approval for the use of the venue for the rally.
“During Bersih 3.0, the government said it will allow rallies in a stadium.
“But till now, the stadium management, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and the police have not responded to our application,” she said.
