MIC leader Dr S Subramaniam has problems with his grammar. When he said, the series of measures unveiled by the government, signifies the Indian community had never been marginalised. I guess he wanted to say, the community won’t be marginalised henceforth, but referring to the past, reminds me of a friend having difficulty with past and present tense.
He is excited that the following had been promised by the Government:
- Najib Razak announcing help in the fields of education, business and civil service
- This announcement is looked at as if God send, and Najib Razak asserted the Indians had never been marginalised
- Among others, Subramaniam feels, the government will, convert 372 partially aided schools to fully assisted schools, consolidate schools with lesser enrolment of 50 students, Aimst to be recatergorised, Indian contractors to vie for Government contracts, state owned companies helping Indians, easier loans, setting up unit trust, etc etc.
- He also adds, Bumiputeras won’t be affected by Indians getting Government contracts.
Our good Doctor must be reading a bit of fairy tales. However, not to derail him or break his enthusiasm, he has promised a monitoring system, and Indians will wait with glee his monthly or quarterly report. Please publish these reports.
