THE Government has allocated RM1 million to the Sri Murugan Centre to help poor and deserving Indian students excel in their education, Tamil Nesan reported.

The centre’s director and founder, Datuk Dr M. Thambirajah, told reporters after receiving the cheque from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in Putrajaya on Wednesday.

The centre was established in 1982 to focus on education.

It provides tuition for UPSR, PMR, SPM and STPM students.

He said that over the years the centre had produced 16,000 graduates.

It has 103 branches throughout the country.

He added that the funds would be used to open new centres with better facilities.

    I hope the RM 1 million grant is put to good use. Accurate accounts must also be maintained. Money should not be splurged on unneccesary projects.

    This is not just a first but also signifies a strategic change in policy by the govt. What Najib has done is that he is sending a signal that he no longer depends on MIC to reach out to Indians. The same message was sent when he attended the Batu Cave’s event the other day.
