The red shirts movement will not be confronting Bersih tomorrow as it will be busy with community service.
Sungai Besar Umno chief Jamal Md Yunos, who leads the movement, said his men will be aiding villagers who are being threatened by the high tide starting tomorrow.
"Tomorrow, the red shirts movement will not be confronting Bersih 5 which is believed to be travelling from Kuala Selangor to Sekinchan as we will be focusing on welfare work for the people of Sungai Besar and Selangor who will be facing the high tide phenomenon expected to take place from Oct 15 to 19.
"After these dates, we will fight the yellow shirts until..." he said in a Facebook posting, without finishing the sentence.
Jamal also questioned what Bersih was contributing while the local villagers face the threat of high tide.
Meanwhile, Sekinchan state assemblyperson Ng Suee Lim dismissed Jamal's argument, stating that all preparations against the high tide were already in place.
"My people have made all the preparations. Sand bags and other items have been placed at the villagers while the bridges are also ready.
"The Bersih roadshow will go on as it demands for a clean and fair election and this is for the interest of all the people," he said.
Bersih is presently holding a nationwide roadshow to build momentum for its rally next month.
The red shirts, which have threatened to confront the Bersih 5 rally participants on Nov 19, have also been harassing its roadshows.
The red shirts and Bersih activists have clashed for two weekends as Jamal and his men attempt to block the yellow shirts' convoy.
Last week, the red shirts pulled a Bersih supporter off his motorcycle and hurled projectiles at him while another hurled a flying kick at him. -Mkini
