The Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat (People's Uprising Rally) was aimed at 'overthrowing' the ruling government, but in the coming general election, says rally organising chairperson Mohamad Sabu.
"We did indeed want to 'overthrow' the government in the coming general election,' joked the PAS deputy president, who is more popularly known as Mat Sabu.
Mohamad said this at a press conference this morning when responding the accusation of former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Mahathir claimed that last Saturday's mega rally at Stadium Merdeka was organised as an attempt to topple the BN government.
