Stay away from building, says CPO

IPOH: Perak CPO Deputy Comm Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah has warned members of the public, including any elected state representatives who have no business entering the State Secretariat building, not to gather there today.

DCP Zulkifli said anyone converging near the State Secretariat building would be deemed as going against the law and considered as taking part in an illegal gathering.

Only officials, employees and those with permits would be allowed in, he said in a statement yesterday.

On Friday, state assembly Speaker V. Sivakumar had called for an emergency sitting of the State Assembly today by invoking Standing Orders 8 and 11, to vote on two motions.

DCP Zulkifli said police have been informed by the State Secretariat administration that the emergency sitting would not be taking place.

He also said the state assembly secretary had stated on Sunday that the meeting was invalid because it had not received the consent of the Perak Ruler.
