I set my record of attending 4 ceramah a night from north Johor to south Johor last night.
I arrived at the DAP-PKR joint operation center, probably first of its kind, at Tangkak at about 6.30 pm and spoke to about 200 people before the sunset. The crowd was responsive despite its small number.
I left immediately for Yong Peng and was greeted by about 300 enthusiastic crowd at about 8.00 pm. It was unusual for this small town of about 20 km away from my hometown, Batu Pahat.
The voters here had been voting for Barisan Nasional since independence. A traditional agricultural community, Yong Peng is relatively a conservative town and, thus, the turn out last night was encouraging.
I then rushed to Skudai and reached there at about 9.45 pm. Almost 2,ooo people were there at the open space sandwiched between 2 rows of flats. The crowd were extremely excited. Our candidate, Dr Boo Cheng Hau, is very likely to make it this time after the 2 previous defeats.
After Skudai, I went to Pekan Nenas to speak to about 200 people at about 11.15 pm. For a small town, the attendance was considered good especially at late night.
To night, I have a grand ceramah at the Klang Association Hall and look forward to breaking the record of collection from Klang people in a ceramah. Azmin Ali, PKR Vice President cum candidate for Gombak Parliamentary constituency, Goh Leong San, DAP candidate in Melaka, Lew Ah Kim, DAP ex-MP, Lau Dak Kee, DAP ex-MP, and all the DAP candidates in Klang will be the speakers.
