Salah satu daripada tiga trak kempen pilihan raya DAP yang baru dilancarkan didapati hilang pagi ini di Johor, kata ketua DAP negeri Dr Boo Cheng Hau.
Boo berkata trak tiga tan yang diparkir di luar sebuah rumah kedai di Taman Tun Aminah itu dipercayai dicuri.
"Ia diparkir di luar rumah kedai ketua Wanita saya, apabila mereka pulang pada 11 malam, mereka dapati ia masih ada di situ tapi pada jam 7 pagi apabila anak perempuannya keluar, dia dapati trak itu sudah ghaib," katanya.
Boo berkata, trak yang mudah dikenali – dengan gambar besar maskot Ubah itu menjadi sasaran walaupun berada berdekatan dengan trak lain di jalan tersebut.
Oleh yang demikian, beliau menganggap bahawa kejadian itu bermotif politik kerana trak lain di kawasan itu tidak terjejas. -mk
Johor DAP’s campaign truck stolen
PETALING JAYAL: A Johor DAP election campaigning truck went missing this morning, six days after it was featured in a Pakatan Rakyat mega dinner held last Sunday.
The Isuzu truck with the registration number of BLU 2926 was parked outside a shophouse belonging to the Johor DAP assistant organising secretary Ng Sian Luang in Taman Tun Aminah, Johor Bahru.
Ng said she woke up at 10am today to learn that the truck, which was parked at 8pm last night, had disappeared.
“I thought my party colleagues drove it away, but they told me they didn’t because the car key was with me,” she said when contacted by FMT.
Ng questioned why the truck was targeted when there were several lorries also parked along the road.
“If they want to steal they could have gone for those without advertisement banner. My truck was plastered with so many DAP banners,” she said.
She said the owner of the truck, who is a DAP supporter, would be lodging a police report.
“I am very panicky now. For those who drove it away, please don’t play with us.This is not my truck, this was borrowed from the owner,” she said.
Meanwhile, Johor DAP chief Boo Cheng Hau suspects the theft to be politically-motivated.
He said the truck was used in a Pakatan mega dinner last Sunday where he spoke about peaceful transition of power should Pakatan wins the general election.
“Of course we expected intimidation and political pressures after that,” he said. -FMT
