School aid not 'gifts', says MCA

3 February, 2008

SERDANG: The MCA has slammed the opposition for implying that recent aid for Chinese schools were election “gifts”. Party deputy president Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said the opposition was always full of criticism.
“This is typical of the opposition. If you work, they say it is not good enough,” he said after launching MCA’s Crisis Relief Squad mobile clinic and Chinese New Year lunch for the poor at SJK(C) Serdang Baru (1) here yesterday.
“If we do something, they claim we are only giving sweeteners to obtain votes.”
On Friday, the Education Ministry approved the relocation of 13 Chinese schools in the Klang Valley and Johor.
Plans are also under way to build six new Chinese schools in Wangsa Maju, Sg Long, Kajang, Bukit Serdang, Rawang and Danga Bay.
