MIC Youth: Publish names of PSD scholarship students

The Star

KUALA LUMPUR: MIC Youth has urged the Public Service Department (PSD) to publish the names of students who were being given scholarships to ensure transparency.

Youth chief S.A. Vigneswaran claimed there were complaints that PSD scholarships were being given to students whose parents had “connections” with politicians or who were wealthy.

“The PSD should publish the names of the students as well as the parents, so that there is transparency in the awarding of scholarships,” he said on Monday, adding that students from poor families should be given priority.
