In stitches: Umno President Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin reacting to the speech from the Speaker in Dewan Merdeka during the assembly.

MORE than 35,000 students in Sabah attended vernacular schools last year and 43% of them were bumiputra, so it is not logical to close vernacular schools, said an Umno delegate from Sabah.

According to Datuk Taufiq Abu Bakar Titingan, out of 35,162 students studying in Chinese vernacular schools in Sabah last year, 15,120 were bumiputra.
