TARC and UTAR are monuments to prove MCA is impotent

The truth is only 9.6% students in the public universities are Malaysian Chinese.

Young Malaysian Chinese (Indian too) are denied the rightfully seats in the public universities because of

1. UMNO abused the public funds to build apartheid MARA and Petronas universities for bumi (actually for Malay).

2. Dual tier schooling and examination system. Malay students are enrolled into good facilities MARA junior colleges and sit for internal examination. Chinese and Indian students are forced to study in normal schools and sit for STPM.

3. Allocate too many seats for foreign students especially from the Islamic nations and Muslims from the non-Islamic nations.

Why bumi (actually Malay) students are not sitting STPM? Because at least 90% of them will fail in STPM.

MCA is impotent and let UMNO to monopolize the usage of resources for bumi. So MCA only solution is to build TARC and UTAR to accommodate qualified Chinese students who are deprived of opportunity to study in the public universities paid by their parents (via income, sales and import taxes).

Teresa: I’m also from KTAR

KUALA LUMPUR: Seputih MP Teresa Kok is another DAP leader who studied at Tunku Abdul Rahman College, a project initiated and supported by the MCA.

The Selangor state executive councillor and DAP national organising secretary issued a statement yesterday admitting she had studied at KTAR for a year but defended her role as an opposition MP.

She said she did not think the MCA expected Malaysians who accepted “any form of service from the MCA, such as admission into Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman or funding from the 1MCA Medical Foundation” to be permanently indebted to the party.

The admission came following reports in the Chinese media and online portal that Serdang MP Teo Nie Ching’s mother had sought the help of the Negri Sembilan MCA.

State MCA chief Datuk Dr Yeow Chai Thiam had reportedly said Teo did not acknowledge the MCA’s help until he enquired about her mother’s health.

The portal also questioned why Teo’s mother, who had a heart problem, had to seek the assistance of the MCA when she (Teo) had constantly attacked the MCA.

Teo’s husband is also a doctor.

The portal also reported that Wanita DAP chief and Bukit Mertajam MP Chong Eng had studied for a year at TARC.

The issue has been widely reported by many blogs and portals with debates over the positions of the two DAP MPs.

Sabah MCA vice-chairman Chew Kok Woh questioned why the DAP had claimed the MCA had done nothing for the Chinese community when its leaders had benefited from the MCA.

Yesterday, responding to Kok, Chew said it was good that she had openly admitted she had studied at TARC “because she feared being named by the media”.

“There are many other DAP leaders who had gained from the MCA but still persist in saying MCA had done nothing.

“I do not expect them to be grateful but hope they can search their conscience,” he added.
