THE SRI Sivasubramaniyar temple committee thanked the Kelantan Government for allowing it to complete the building of its temple complex in Kota Baru, Malaysia Nanban reported. 

Temple chairman N. Subramaniam said the state government initially denied approval to build the tower for the RM2mil temple in Jalan Hamzah. 

However, he said that an approval letter was received later from Mentri Besar Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat. 

He said this during the Sept 3 temple consecration ceremony attended by about 4,000 devotees, including MIC president and Works Minister Datuk S. Samy Vellu, deputy president Datuk S. Subramaniam, vice-president Datuk G. Palanivel and Malaysia Hindu Sangam president A. Vaithilingam.

He said during a book launch on Saturday that Tamil primary school pupils who took up the language failed to pursue it further in secondary schools.
