KUALA LUMPUR: The Government’s special task force for the Indian community will review all existing projects meant for Indians when it meets in two weeks’ time.
Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran said this included the Malaysian Indian Blueprint, the brainchild of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak that was launched to much fanfare last year.
“We will study all the projects and the agencies involved in executing them, and make improvements where we see fit.
“The B40 need all the help they can get and we must ensure initiatives are in place to reach this group,” he told reporters after launching the inaugural Indian Entrepreneurship Summit 2018 yesterday.
Among the issues expected to be raised at the first task force meeting are the roles of Indian community agencies such as the Socioeconomic Development of Indian Community unit (Sedic), as well as allocations for Indians that came under Tekun and the Amanah Saham 1Malaysia scheme.
Kulasegaran said the task force would also engage community experts and professionals to resolve other issues affecting the community as listed in Pakatan Harapan’s Buku Jingga.
