I attended a forum today (30th November 2009) organised by the Tamil School's Action Committee.
They discussed a matter pertaining to a decision which was made by the Education Minister who also happens to be the Y.A.B. Deputy Prime Minister (Y.A.B. Tan Sri Mahyuddin Yassin).
Its rather shocking that the Y.A.B. Deputy Prime Minister has taken a decision before consulting Malaysians who are directly effected on this decision.
Whatever decision made by the Deputy Prime Minister is not inline with the Y.A.B. Prime Minister's 1Malaysia vission.
More than 50 participants representing more than 20 Non-Governmental Organisation participated in this forum and it was an unanimous decision that the NGO's who has at least 700,000 members (including MIC's membership) that the Ministry of Education allow students to sit for minimum of 12 subjects and nothing short.
Y.B. Dato' Dr. S Subramaniam MIC's Vice President and also the Minister of Human Resources have given assurance that he would present the opinions of the NGO and MIC to the Minister of Education as well as the members of the cabinet at the next Cabinet Meeting.
He also said that this is inline with MIC's wishes as well and will fight this cause.
So. lets wish him all the best.
