The Government's Unfair Treatment of our Young Citizens....
It is disappointing to read that many young Malaysians have been deprived of the opportunities to improve themselves via tertiary education.
This can be seen from the PM's response to a question on government scholarships as shown in the table that is derived from the NST article.
If I assume that all are equally intelligent and some of you will disagree to that notion, at least an additional 15.4% of the scholarships should have been given to non-Bumis based on the population ratio.
Thus about 4486 young Malaysians were treated unfairly by the authorities as they are using a flawed and indefensible policy to award scholarships.
