KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali paid a visit to Dataran Merdeka, hours after the former prime minister told a crowd in Johor that he was thinking of joining the Bersih 4 rally.

The couple arrived at the square at about 7.30pm and were greeted by hundreds of protes­ters.

Asked if he agreed with the protesters’ de­­mands, Dr Mahathir simply smiled and waved to the crowd.

Asked why he came to the rally, he said he “just wan­ted to see”.

Many rushed forward to greet him the moment they realised that it was Dr Mahathir, sparking a frenzy of snapshots and video-filming.

Many were heard shouting: “Don’t push, don’t push.”

At one point, his bodyguards had to keep the surging crowds at bay.

The couple walked a short distance but left after 10 minutes and were escorted to a police car that took them towards Jalan Parlimen. – The Star
