Making a statement: Barisan supporters taking part in the flash mob by the road leading to Membakut town. — ZULAZHAR SHEBLEE/The Star

BEAUFORT: In what was seen as another attempt to win Kimanis voters’ support before polling day, Barisan Nasional supporters organised a flash mob by the roadside to condemn Parti Warisan Sabah’s Sabah Temporary Pass (PSS) policy.

Vehicles passing the road leading to Membakut town were heard honking in response to “Reject PSS” and “Honk if You Agree” messages, which were held up high by men dressed in blue at about 4.30pm yesterday.

Some 30 Barisan supporters were involved in the flash mob.

They also chanted “Tolak PSS, Tolak PTI” (Reject PSS, reject illegal immigrants) in unison.

Some 20 minutes later, Parti Warisan Sabah supporters drove past the area and, in retaliation, blasted statements such as “Tolak Penyamun, Tolak BN” (Reject Thieves, Reject BN).

The Warisan convoy passed along the route several times and played a song asking the voters to pick “Calon No.2” (Warisan candidate Datuk Karim Bujang).

In return, Barisan supporters blasted the party anthem with their speakers.

They also tore a mock temporary pass card as an act of protest against the PSS.
