BANDAR Tun Razak MCA has urged supporters to wait until polling day to rally for their party instead of vandalising banners with pictures of candidates.

Its chairman Chiew Lian Keng said over the past few days, banners with Bandar Tun Razak Barisan candidate Tan Kok Eng had been vandalised.

Tan is being fielded against Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim of PKR.

Chiew urged voters and supporters to show their support via the ballot box.

“We have found more than 20 banners vandalised.

“The picture of our candidate was torn,” he told reporters during a press conference at the Taman Ikan Emas MCA service centre in Bandar Tun Razak.

Chiew said it was odd that only Tan’s picture was damaged.

The picture of Barisan chairman Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, also on the banner, was not marred.

“We have already replaced the damaged banners and also lodged a police report.

“We hope the police will find the culprits,” he said.
