Klang NOV 11: The Indian community in this country will not be ignored if Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is given the opportunity to rule in Putrajaya after the upcoming 13th General Elections.
Opposition Chairman, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said, the India community which has often been overlooked by the Umno-BN Government will be given equal attention along with the other races who are citizens of this country.
He said, the best example is shown by PR-led Selangor State Government under the administration of Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim who allocated a total of RM4 million each year to all Tamil National-type Schools (SJKT) in the state.
“If 50 years ago SJKT never received special assistance for school development, the State Government now gives all SJKT RM4 million each year in Selangor,” he said.
Anwar said this when giving a speech while visiting the Deepavali Festival held at Jalan Kelana, Klang last evening.
Also present was Selangor Exco members, Dr. Xavier Jayakumar and Ronnie Liu as well as Klang MP, Charles Santiago.
Meanwhile, Anwar said, the people of this country should have faith in PR to implement their proven policies for the interests of the people.
“We’ve heard so many things, from abolishing PTPTN, lowering car prices and various policies will be implemented if PR rules Putrajaya.”
“I do not want to hear any more fights about racial disputes, we will take care of all races and citizens in this country,” the Selangor State Economic Advisors added.
