No Necessity For MIC President To Chair Mied - Samy Vellu

Contributed by Anonymous on Wednesday, July 06 @ 10:53:40 CDT

KUALA LUMPUR, July 6 (Bernama) -- There was no necessity for the MIC president to chair the Maju Institute of Educational Development (MIED), although it was an educational arm of the party, said former party president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu.

As current MIED president, he said he would continue to hold on to the post, so long as he was healthy.

To a question on how long he intended to keep the post (MIED chairmanship), Samy Vellu said:

"Well, I am 75 years old now...I hope so (to hold on to the post longer). Let me see if my health lasts (permits me to stay on) for two or three years."

He was speaking to reporters after launching the Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) Modules 2011 here Wednesday.

Also present were Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam and Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Deputy Minister Datuk M. Saravanan.

Samy Vellu urged the MIC to work closely with MIED to ensure Tamil school students nationwide achieved excellence academically, and address any shortage of learning materials.

"We anticipate about 900 students to score 7As in the UPSR examination this year, as compared to 807 students last year," he said.

Samy Vellu also pointed out that the standard of Tamil schools had gone up "very well" since 2003, as the MIED worked continuously to distribute books containing UPSR modules annually.

A total of 17,944 standard six students from Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil (SJKT) would each receive five copies of UPSR modules, while 2,000 copies of books on teacher's guide would for given to 521 Tamil schools in the country.
