INDIAN youths with MyPR identity cards should be given priority when reviewing citizenship cases involving the stateless in the community, Makkal Osai reported the Klang Consumer Association (KCA) as saying.

KCA president Devadass Anjan said the move to grant citizenship to about 3,000 elderly Indians two weeks ago was very welcome for the community.

Students, however, face many problems and setbacks as they only have the MyPR identity cards which are issued to permanent residents instead of the MyKad.

“The problems start when they try to enrol in schools, sit for exams and apply to join universities. Later on, they have difficulty getting jobs and securing loans.

“It also impossible for them to get jobs in the public sector,” Devadass said.

He welcomed the announcement by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department P. Waytha Moorthy’s announcement that talks are ongoing with the Ministry of Home Affairs on the matter.
