THE Batu Caves Deepavali Expo will provide special concessions for youths and small traders, Malaysia Nanban reported.

Sri Maha Mariamman Devasthanam trustee and Team DSK president Datuk Sivakumar Nadraja said the expo, organised by World Life Cruises & Tours, will be held from Sept 30 to Oct 10.

The event, which will be held at the Batu Caves temple compound, will benefit young and small traders who had to forego the lucrative expo in the last two years due to the pandemic.

For this year’s festival, Team DSK will contribute 50% of the rent money for Indian youths who set up booths at the expo.

The group wants to encourage youths to take up business opportunities such as this, said Sivakumar.

> Police in Tamil Nadu have stepped up their patrols after a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) office and several cars were torched in at least two separate incidents, Malaysia Nanban also reported.

BJP is the ruling party in India led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Both have been accused of promoting the Hindutva or Hindu Nationalist ideology and eroding the secularist principles of Indian governance.
