MCA has to apologize for using wrong number

MCA has misled me to believe PR is allocated 0.3% quota for Chinese by using >4000 successful applicants with Yayasan Selangor.

The number used by MCA is very far off from actual number (742) given by Teresa Kok.

MCA Selangor, please apologize to Teresa and all Malaysians for using wrong number in the first place.

Anyway, I still do not satisfy with only 2.28% Chinese and 5.33% Indian students were receiving study loans. This is just a mirror of BN racial policy.

Kok fends off MCA attacks on Selangor’s education loans
By FMT Staff

PETALING JAYA: In a tit-for-tat battle between MCA and DAP, Selangor exco Teresa Kok today scoffed at MCA’s Ti Lian Ker’s continued assault on the state government’s “racial quota” for education loans, calling Ti “a man living in his own little cyber world”.

In an press statement, Kok also said that the MCA central committee member has lost touch with “reality” as he was making up stories to achieve cheap publicity.

“He would do better if he tried harder on genuine issues and focused on facts instead of simply putting words into people’s mouths,” said Kok.

Ti had criticised the DAP for not protecting the interest of the Chinese and had accused the state government of imposing a racial quota by giving out education loans to “only 12 Chinese students out of 4,000” applicants.

Kok had repeatedly denied the charge.

Kok said Ti had “plucked the figures out of thin air”, adding that in 2010, there were only 12 Chinese applicants for the loan and all were successful.

“Hence the approval rate was 100%. MCA vice-president Donald Lim had also been critical at first but he later admitted to me personally that he had not been aware that there were only 12 Chinese applicants.” (See table.)

Kok said the loans have no racial quota, were interest-free and available to all Malaysians based on academic merit and household income.

“Ti would truly have something to boast about if he supports abolishing the racial quota practised in the awarding of Public Service Department (PSD) scholarships instead of backing the Barisan Nasional’s race-based system of governance…” she said.

Kok also alleged that Ti had claimed that MCA had aided the Chinese to obtain PSD and Mara scholarships without providing any figures to prove it.
