KUALA LUMPUR: Students on Public Service Department (JPA) bursaries stand to lose their sponsorship if they are found to have criticised the Government, says its director-general Datuk Seri Zainal Rahim Seman (pic).

In a telephone interview with Sin Chew Daily, Zainal said that it was justifiable to withdraw the bursaries offered to such students if they were found to have issued remarks which would dent the country's image on social media sites such as Facebook and blogs.
