Kuala Lumpur, May 22 (ANI): Malaysian Indian Congress secretary-general Dr. S. Subramaniam has said the party has not failed the Malay-Indian community.
Malaysia’s Human Resource Minister said the delay in enforcing solutions had led to dissatisfaction among the community, which was evident in the results of the last general election.
The Star quoted Dr Subramaniam as saying that the Malaysian Government has realized the problems faced by the community, and has formed a special committee to tackle them.
The Public Service Department has approved 175 scholarships this year compared to last year’s 163 for Indian students, who want to pursue higher studies in local and foreign universities, he added. (ANI)
