GEORGE TOWN, May 11 (Bernama) — The DAP today asked the police to take action against the Malay right-wing group Perkasa for having organised a gathering outside the residence of Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng yesterday.

State DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow said the party was upset over the Perkasa action which he claimed had violated the privacy of the chief minister and his family.

At a news conference, he also expressed disappointment over the police inaction in the matter, claiming that the police had even accompanied the group to Komtar without taking any action.

Meanwhile, Jelutong MP Jeff Ooi said the action by Perkasa violated the Penal Code.

More than 70 Perkasa members had gathered outside Lim’s residence and Komtar yesterday, demanding his resignation for allegedly having failed to take care of the interests of the people in the state.

They had also hung a garlanded picture of Lim on the fence of his residence as a symbolic gesture of rejecting his administration.
