PERGADUHAN DI DUN SELANGOR
Saya sudahpun melapurkan kisah ini. Tetapi ada beberapa dialog yang
menarik yang dilapurkan oleh akhbar luar negara yang tidak
dicatat oleh akhbar tempatan:
Sesi debat "kilang haram" atau "kilang tanpa izin" menggamatkan
dewan bila YB Zakaria dan YB Teng bertukar-tukar kata bila
Debat itu kemudiannya berhenti seketika untuk waktu rehat. Di dalam
bilik khas untuk minum kopi itu perbalahan meletus lagi, bila YB
Zakaria mengata kepada YB Teng sebagai "babi Cina".
Akhirnya bertumbuklah mereka berdua sambil disaksikan oleh
YB yang lain.
YB Teng komplen kepada Speaker bahawa YB Zakaria berkelakuan
"seperti samseng (gangster)", dan ia di sampuk oleh YB Zakaria
dengan terbuka, "Memang, saya samseng!"

Punches fly between Klang politicians
Scuffle In Selangor State Assembly
The two men, from opposing parties, had to be pulled apart by
colleagues after they started fighting on the first day of the
Selangor Budget session
By JOCELINE TAN IN KUALA LUMPUR
A FIST-FIGHT erupted between two state assemblymen from opposing
parties yesterday during the morning coffee break on the first day of
the Budget session of the Selangor state legislative assembly.
The two, Umno's Zakaria Deros, the assemblyman for Selat Klang and
Democratic Action Party's Teng Chang Khim, Bandar Klang assemblyman,
had to be pulled apart by their colleagues as they threw punches at
At one stage in the tussle, a third party whom witnesses said was not
an elected representative, joined in the scuffle and was seen boxing
Mr Teng in the face.
The incident was witnessed by about 20 people.
Mr Teng sustained bruises and swelling on his left cheek but it was
not known whether Mr Zakaria was injured.
When contacted at his office yesterday, Mr Teng confirmed the incident
but declined to elaborate, saying that ""magnanimity should prevail''.
Apparently, Mr Zakaria subsequently apologised to Mr Teng in the
presence of Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Dr Mohamad Khor Toyo, the
State Secretary, State Legal Adviser and Speaker.
Mr Zakaria had bowed low as he shook Mr Teng's hand in apology.
""I feel sad not because I was hurt physically but because the
incident reflected the immaturity of our politicians.
""I do not expect elected representative to resort to violence,'' Mr
Former Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib, expressed
shock and told The Straits Times that assemblymen could argue all they
liked inside the chamber but ""once outside, they should maintain a
friendly and professional relationship''.
""Nothing like this ever happened in all my years as the Mentri
Besar,'' he said.
According to an assemblyman from the ruling Barisan Nasional, Mr Teng
and Mr Zakaria had begun arguing about illegal factories in Selangor
shortly after the assembly convened.
When the assemblymen broke for morning coffee in the special room
reserved for them, another argument broke out during which Mr Zakaria
allegedly called Mr Teng babi Cina (Chinese pig).
Minutes later, they were punching one another as their colleagues
tried to hold them back.
At this point, the unidentified man, wearing a suit and tie, stepped
up, boxed Mr Teng on the face and quickly left the room.
""You could hear them going for each other. Pok, pok, pok!'' said one
Local newspapers had reported how Mr Zakaria had strode over to Mr
Teng's seat in the middle of a heated debate, with his hand raised to
strike at an earlier sitting of the state assembly.
The Speaker quickly intervened.
The Mentri Besar then was Datuk Seri Abu Hassan Omar.
Mr Teng then complained to the Speaker that Mr Zakaria was behaving
""like a samseng (gangster)'', to which the latter openly replied, ""I
am a samseng, indeed''.
