Don’t question benefits given to non-bumis, says Subra

FORMER MIC deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam said that no one should question benefits given to the non-bumiputras by the Government, Tamil Nesan quoted him as saying.

He said that Indians also should not question the benefits given to the other races, referring to the questions raised in Parliament regarding the 55:45 allocation of scholarships to bumiputras and non-bumiputras as announced recently.

He said that the Government had taken the decision after considering the plight of the Indian community but pointed out that the bumiputra quota had not been reduced.

He was speaking to reporters after addressing an educational seminar organised for pupils taking the UPSR in Gopeng yesterday.
