The visual of the crowd at the Han Chiang High School replying 'NO' loudly to Najib's question during BN's Chinese New Year open house in Penang went viral on the internet over the past few days.

However Barisan Nasional leaders were quick to deny the clip showing Penangites' rejecting BN as sabotage.


Penang BN Chief Teng Chang Yeow believed saboteurs were behind the response when Najib asked the question.

According to Sinar Harian, the Gerakan leader said he had video recordings showing many in attendance shouting "Yes!" in response to the prime minister's question.

Teng also alleged the saboteurs were wearing the yellow, green and red colored T-shirts as suggested by DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng.

Meanwhile, According to Nanyang SiangPau Gerakan President Koh Tsu Koon said only a small number of people shouted 'NO' when Najib asked the crowd whether they were ready to support BN. Koh also said that the strong turnout on that day showed that BN had regained strong support in Penang.
