THE Johor Government will allocate RM2.2 million for Chinese primary schools and another RM1 million for the development of Chinese temples, Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said.
He said the allocations would be disbursed through the state MCA. “I’ve agreed to give financial aid for fully-aided and privately-run Chinese primary schools in the state and for building Chinese temples as well as to acquire land for the temples,” he told reporters after meeting the state MCA liaison committee led by chairman Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek. Ghani also said the state government had agreed to help MCA relocate three rural under-enrolled Chinese primary schools to Johor Baharu where the need was more pressing. The meeting also discussed MCA’s request to the state government to draw up clear guidelines on the fencing of housing schemes, he said.
what is RM2.2mil + another RM1mil when our "dear" PM gave RM20million + another RM3.5million to just one school?
what is RM2.2 mil when it is shared out by 215 Chinese schools?
Well, I guess at least this tops the previous record high Ministry hands out RM1.4mil to schools which was shared by 248 schools.
It truly amazes Lulu - the govenment's generosity.
