MCA returns fire: Stop boasting Teresa, you hampered construction of a Chinese school
Selangor exco Teresa Kok is incapable of fulfilling her responsibility because while she can boast about Pakatan Rakyat state government’s contributions in helping Chinese schools, yet Chinese schools still face many difficulties, including the lack of coordination between the state government and local authorities where she had announced the allocation of land to SJKC Keng Chee.
However, the construction committee of SJKC Kheng Chee were issued a stop-work order form the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ), thus preventing the construction progress of the school.
S'gor turned a blind eye
To make things more difficult for the SJKC Kheng Chee construction committee, the state government had turned a blind eye to this problem. The state government had only announced how concerned they were over the issue of Chinese education, leaving the school committee, parents, children and the construction committee in a dilemma as the project is still unable to proceed as scheduled.
Not only has Teresa Kok disregarded the construction of SJKC Kheng Chee by making things difficult for them through the Subang Jaya Municipal Council, she had also attended the 325 Chinese education rally and had asked the crowd to support DAP, which is prohibited by the rally’s organizers, and had incited the crowd there to humiliate Deputy Minister of Education Datuk Dr Ir Wee Ka Siong, thus causing the rally to not reach its objectives.
Chinese education is an important issue to the Chinese community, and Teresa Kok’s actions in politicizing this issue has caused the people to worry about the future of Chinese education.
Although DAP continuously promises to protect the rights of Chinese education, their behaviour during the 325 rally, such as waving political banners and shouting and showing the thumbs-down sign, and calling for the downfall of Barisan Nasional shows that their words are only a scam to secure the votes from the public.
If DAP manages to win the votes of the public, they had better be sincere and determined to solve the problems on Chinese education, because if they do not then the future of Chinese education will be ruined, and if this does happen it will prove to be an expensive mistake for the country.
