"This shows the people back the BN and the chief minister. So why isn't Francis Seah (the head of MoCS) respecting the decision taken by the people of Sarawak," he told reporters after attending Toastmasters International District 87's 1st Annual Convention in Kuching today.

Meanwhile, Sarawak police commissioner Mohmad Salleh said police had opened investigation papers on the planned public protests following police reports lodged by Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Youth here, in Kota Samarahan and Bintulu on Tuesday.

He added that police would not issue permits to MoCS to hold the rallies as they could disrupt public order.
