PETALING JAYA: DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang was seen heckled by the public over the khat issue during a Hungry Ghost Festival event in his constituency on Friday (Aug 9).

In two videos circulating on social media, Lim, who is the Iskandar Puteri MP, can be seen being shouted and booed at by the public.

In the first video, a man is heard shouting at Lim, "Are you still lying" while Lim is giving a speech.

Following this, the crowd starts to jeer at him.

In the second video, another man questions Lim but does not get a response as Lim just continues with his speech.

Online portal Malaysiakini reported that the function's organiser had claimed that Lim was booed at by locals as they were not happy over the khat issue.

The report also stated that Lim did not leave the event later over the jeering, but because he needed to attend another function.
