DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng stressed that the party was still united after an almost five-hour meeting with all DAP elected representatives over the controversy surrounding the government’s plan to introduce khat (calligraphy) lessons in school.
This was amid DAP grassroots attacking some party central leaders for backing the government’s plan to introduce six pages of khat lessons to the Year 4 Bahasa Malaysia textbook.
“The discussion was done in an open and frank matter. What is important is that the DAP takes a common position.
“Contrary to claims (that DAP is split), DAP is still united and will manage this matter as a team,” he told journalists at the DAP headquarters after the meeting which ended at around 12.40am on Tuesday.
