From the Tamil Press

MALAYSIA NANBAN reported on the call by the National Union of the Teaching Profession (NUTP) for the Government to pay more attention to the development of Tamil schools. 

The daily quoted NUTP secretary-general Datuk N. Siva Subramaniam as saying that most of the government-aided Tamil schools were in a bad state. 

He said most of the Tamil schools had not received computers and LCD projectors for the teaching of Science and Mathematics in English.  

He urged the Government to install power supply to some rural schools to enable them to use computers and LCD projectors and to increase security measures at these schools.  

Siva Subramaniam noted that there was a sharp drop in the intake of pupils in Tamil schools in urban and rural areas and, in some schools, there was zero intake.  

He urged the teachers and Parent-Teacher Association officials to put in extra effort to register more pupils for Year One in Tamil schools. 

Tamil Nesan reported on Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu’s call for a smart partnership and co-operation between Malaysian and Indian entrepreneurs. 

He said this while addressing the Global Investors Meeting at Cochin, Kerala.
