KUALA LUMPUR: Fresh from his release from remand, Red Shirts leader Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos (pic) announced that he would start a “Bersih 7” movement to “save Selangor” from the PKR-led government.
He said the movement would be launched at 3pm Wednesday at the Selangor state secretariat building in Shah Alam.
“The movement will involve a roadshow at more than 700 locations in Selangor.
“We are adamant (about) saving the state,” he said after walking out of the Ampang Jaya police headquarters on Tuesday after he was released on police bail.
Jamal, who is Sungai Besar Umno chief, congratulated Red Shirts supporters who took part in Saturday’s rally, especially the ones arrested by the police, in opposing the Bersih 5.0 rally.
“They have shown dedication in rallying against Bersih,” he said.
On Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor’s statement that action would be taken against Umno members who took part in Saturday’s rally, Jamal said those who took part were NGO members.
“He must be senile (for implying Umno members were involved).
“I am an Umno division chief but I led the Red Shirts in my capacity as an NGO member,” he said.
Jamal was detained at about 1.30am on Saturday at a hotel in the city and was remanded for four days.
