MALAYSIA Nanban said it will continue to carry statements from the PPP despite the recent misunderstanding between the party's president Datuk M. Kayveas and the newspaper. 

Its managing editor Athi Kumanan, in his weekly editorial column, said he did not feel bitter about the issue but was sad that PPP members failed to think of their actions before demonstrating in front of the newspaper’s office. 

Kayveas had last week said the party would take legal action against four individuals, including Athi Kumanan, over his views on Tamil schools. 

The daily also quoted popular Tamil movie actor Kamalahasan as saying it was difficult to get a good girlfriend in the community.  

He said he had very few girlfriends thus far and the Indian community had a wrong perception when Indian men are seen with their girlfriends. 

Tamil Nesan reported that 60,000 non-graduate teachers would receive a pay rise this month. 

The daily quoted National Union of the Teaching Profession secretary-general Datuk N. Siva Subramaniam as saying the teachers would receive a RM40 increment which would also be backdated. 

Tamil Nesan also reported that some 500,000 women attained motherhood yearly. 

The report also quoted Malaysian Medical Association president Datuk Dr N. Athimulam as saying about 200 women died during delivery each year, with haemorrhaging after delivery the main cause of death. 

Dr Athimulam urged hospital managements to ensure sufficient manpower at maternity wards to provide efficient service.
