Pasir Salak MP Tajuddin Abdul Rahman refused to comment on the police seeking his son, Firdaus Tajuddin, over an attempted attack on Shah Alam MP Khalid Abdul Samad on Parliament grounds yesterday.
Instead, the Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Deputy Minister ticked off the media when asked about the matter.
"Don't just harp on that one (issue). You need to look at it in the correct context, only then can you ask me with the right intent.
"You only report what you’re interested in reporting. You don't report what really happened. You only write what you're interested in," said Tajuddin when met by journalists after meeting government officers from Pasir Salak at a hotel in Putrajaya last night.
Yesterday, a group of Tajuddin's supporters attempted to attack Khalid outside the Dewan Rakyat lobby.
KL police chief Amar Singh described the incident as a riot and ordered 10 people, including Tajuddin's son, to surrender to assist in the police investigation.
Tajuddin accused the media of only interested in sensational news.
"If you are interested in the right matters, then I will answer.
"If you are interested in only what you like, find amusing and sensational, then I'm not interested (to answer)," he said before leaving.
Najib weighs in
The attempted attack even prompted Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to respond, calling for the institution of parliament to be respect.
It is not clear how the group managed to enter Parliament's grounds, which is strictly guarded. Visitors are only allowed into the area with prior request or on invitation from an MP.
The incident came amid a row between Tajuddin and Khalid.
On Monday, Tajuddin said Seputeh MP Teresa Kok was the "only woman with a 'Kok' in Seputeh" during the Budget debate in the Dewan Rakyat.
His innuendo sparked outrage among opposition MPs, with Khalid calling Tajuddin "sial" (damned).
Tajuddin refused to apologise for his "Kok" comment and instead railed against Khalid.
On Wednesday, Tajuddin sent a letter of demand to Khalid for defending his "sial" remark outside the House.
This was followed with the attempted attack on Khalid yesterday.- Mkini
