KUALA LUMPUR: Police have sealed off all major roads leading to the heart of the capital, telling people to stay away from any rally today.
Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the police had acted fairly in not issuing any permit to hold rallies.
The Sultan of Selangor said mosques and surau should not be used as a meeting place by those who come from other places to join in the street demonstrations.
The Ruler told his subjects to also stay away from street protests, saying this would harm the unity of the people.
