KUALA LUMPUR: The MIC Youth education bureau has completed the translation into Tamil of the booklet on water released by the National Economic Action Council (NEAC) two weeks ago. 

“We had a discussion with the NEAC’s communications team head Abdul Rahman Sulaiman and offered to do the translation,” said bureau chief P. Kamalanathan. 

About 10,000 booklets are to be printed by next week for distribution to MIC branches, Indian organisations and community leaders. 

The bureau had requested for a discussion with the NEAC after receiving enquiries from MIC members and Tamil-speaking people who wanted to know the real story behind the water problem between Malaysia and Singapore. 

“Some had expressed their disappointment that the NEAC had failed to produce the booklet in Tamil,” said Kamalanathan. 

The 20-page booklet entitled Water: The Singapore-Malaysia Dispute – The Facts was published in English, Malay and Mandarin when it was distributed on July 21. 

The booklet followed a series of advertisements on the issue placed by the NEAC in several mainstream papers to counter allegations made by the Singapore Government through its publication entitled Water Talks? If Only It Could.
