Danesh Raj's appointment will raise voice of young, says Noraini

BAGAN DATUK (Bernama): The appointment of Danesh Raj Nagarajan (pic) as a member of the Board of Directors of Universiti Malaya (UM) will raise the voices of young people to a higher level, says Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Dr Noraini Ahmad.

Noraini said she had personally scrutinised the list of the proposed members from the alumni of the university by looking at the criteria available before the appointment was made.

"He is an active alumni. I was given a list, looked at the criteria available, so the Higher Education Ministry appointed a former student who represented the alumni," she said.

"We must give them the opportunity because they can help the university. We have the board, community representatives, senate, various categories for the young people to speak out and make various related programmes,” added Noraini.

Noraini said this on Saturday (Oct 9) after participating in the vaccination programme to bedridden patients with UMNO president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamid here, about 110 kilometres from Ipoh.

She was commenting on media reports quoting the Universiti Malaya Students’ Union (KMUM) yesterday which questioned the appointment of Danesh Raj.- Bernama
