Deepavali goodies for prisoners in Tapah


ABOUT 3,000 inmates at the Tapah Prison received some Deepavali cheer in the form of traditional candy and snacks from Datuk Seri M. Saravanan, Makkal Osai reported.

The Human Resources Minister, who is also the Tapah MP, arranged for the gifts to show they were not forgotten, district MIC chairman Krishna Rao said.

Krishna handed over the goodies to prison director Faisal Mohamed Noor.

While they were not able to meet with the prisoners due to Covid-19-related restrictions, they hoped the candy brought some cheer to the inmates, he said.

> The daily also reported that the Malaysian Indian Youth Council (MIYC) will collaborate with Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL) to provide more education opportunities to secondary school leavers.
