A NEW Tamil school being constructed in PJS1 in Petaling Jaya, Selangor will become the 530th Tamil school in the country, Makkal Osai reported.

The school was approved in 2012 at a cost of RM19.62mil.

Former Deputy Education Minister Datuk P.Kamalanathan who visited the ongoing construction site said the works are nearing completion.

Parents and students in the surrounding areas can look forward to the school’s opening ceremony soon, he said.

> Hair salon owners and operators who had to remain closed for 80 days in 2020 during the pandemic are still facing the effects of the slowdown, Makkal Osai reported.

Malaysia Sigai Alangara Nilaiya Urimaiyalar Sangam (Malaysian Hair Salon Owners Association) honorary chairman Mathirajan Thanggaiya said businesses haven’t recovered to pre-Covid levels even after the first MCO was lifted.

Shops are operating at reduced capacity to maintain physical distancing and with fewer workers due to worker shortages, he said.

He urged the government to address the situation and provide some relief to business owners.
