Right Is Right, This Is Not

You cannot have DBKL selectively removing banners and flags because they are opposition stuff. Lembah Pantai is my constituency some more. At least they listened to proper reasoning in the end. I feel bad for the police/DBKL people as well as obviously they are only following instructions from the top. It is exactly why people are pissed off, not at DBKL, but at how power is misused at almost every level when it suits them. Less than one month to a new government. The honking for support and people's power rising up from a sense of grave injustice is very heartwarming.

Voters in Putrajaya are finding it strange that PAS flags have been absent in Putrajaya despite the announcement that party vice president Husam Musa will be contesting there at the coming GE.
“PAS is contesting in Putrajaya, but not even a flag? Flags must be put up to boost the spirit,” a voter told Harakahdaily.
Harakahdaily visited Putrajaya and found BN flags hoisted everywhere.
The scene was different during Husam’s first programme at Precinct 18 last Thursday, when roads were decorated with PAS flags.
However, Harakahdaily also noticed that PAS’s Unit Amal was recollecting all the party flags once the programme ended.
A Unit Amal member explained to us why:
“If we put up the flags at 3 in the morning, they will be removed at 4 am. We love our flags. When there is a PAS programme, we will put them up. Once over, we will take them out. That’s routine, I believe this will continue until election.”
He added that he had been warned against putting PAS flags within Putrajaya.
While flags may not be the effective weapon to capture voters' hearts, this ban on PAS flags only shows the great task ahead for history to be created in this city custom-made for civil servants.
