DAP logo on mock cheques not an issue as long as schools receive donations, says Nga

PETALING JAYA: Nga Kor Ming has defended the presence of the DAP logos on mock cheques for school donations, which have garnered criticism from several leaders recently.

"No issue. What's most important is that the schools receive the donation," said Nga to reporters after officiating an event at the Local Government Development Ministry in Putrajaya on Wednesday (Aug 23).

The Local Government Development Minister was seen in several pictures handing over mock cheques bearing the logos of DAP, Pakatan Harapan, and Malaysia Madani, as well as Malaysia's coat of arms.

It was reported on Saturday that 17 Chinese primary and secondary schools in Perak were granted an allocation of RM1.8mil by the Education Ministry.

Various leaders have criticised the matter, among them PAS information department chief director Zurk Ahmad, who said Nga acted immorally by using government funds to gain political mileage.

"During the Pakatan-Barisan Nasional era, were ministers allowed to use the people's and government's money for their own political campaigns in government premises?" questioned Zurk in a statement posted on PAS' news organ Harakah Daily.

Umno youth chief Dr Akmal Salleh also urged Nga to explain why DAP's logo was present in the mock cheques.
