SEVERAL organisations voiced their opinions in Tamil Nesan and Malaysia Nanban over the controversial statements made by People’s Progressive Party (PPP) president Datuk M. Kayveas on Tamil schools. 

Malaysian Dravidian Association secretary general R. Balakrishnan said it was irresponsible for Kayveas to make such statements. 

Malaysian Hindu Youth Council national president P. Velayutham who shared the same view, urged Kayveas to prove himself by working towards upgrading Tamil schools. 

Tamil Nesan, in its editorial, said Kayveas’ statement was akin to challenging the Government’s education policy.  

Malaysia Nanban quoted Kuala Langat municipal councillor M. Gunasekaran as urging housing developers in Bandar Baru Brooklands and Bandar Baru Banting to allocate land for Hindu cemeteries. 

He said the council should instruct developers to allocate land for the cemeteries and compensate displaced families when their estate land had been carved up for development.
