Umno supreme council member Lokman Adam today announced a "teh tarik" session featuring four princes, only to say that it may not happen an hour later due to several "phone calls".

Lokman this evening circulated a poster which stated that the event in Malacca next Monday would be attended by the crown princes of Johor, Selangor, Pahang and another "mystery" prince.

He invited the public to turn out in force for the event, stating that they could take "selfies" with the princes.

"I will be attending the teh tarik session and I will also attend the 'Mega Rally against the Rome Statute: In Defence of Parliamentary Democracy and Constitutional Monarchy' gathering at Dataran Merdeka at 2pm (next) Saturday," he said in a statement later.

However, an hour later, Lokman sent out another information blast on Whatsapp stating that the event may not happen due to several "phone calls".

"Stressed. I only wanted to have tea with four crown princes at Mahkota Parade on Monday, but they're already getting all kinds of phone calls.

"Looks like the people's wish to have tea with their crown princes may not happen," he said.
