Just today, Dusun Tua assemblyperson Edry Faizal Eddy Yusof was left perplexed when the police prevented him from attending Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob’s gotong-royong cleanup event although it was held in his constituency.

Taking to his Twitter, Edry said he was told to welcome the prime minister as a sign of respect.

Since he was turned away by the police, he said he had more important matters to attend to.

Edry also took a swipe and pointed out that the police had skipped two local disaster management committee meetings.

He reminded them to attend the Hulu Langat district disaster coordination meeting tonight.

Should the ambulance or the VIP motorcade go first?

A netizen also shared a video showing the motorcade riding into town while an ambulance was made to wait.

Netizens criticised the behaviour and said putting the life of others second was too much.

A few netizens said the ambulance should be allowed to go first instead of the VIP motorcade.

With resentment growing among the people, it’s high time for our politicians to buck up for real.
