What's the fuss about this PTPTN for Unisel students, Mr Kit Siang and Co?
Maybe you have forgotten that your big boss Anwar Ibrahim and friends were the ones inciting the students to stage that stupid demo at Dataran Merdeka asking for the study loan to be scrapped and demanding for free education instead.
And now you are asking Muhyiddin and Khaled to apologise. For what? Who should apologise for Malaysian parents and students who all the while depend much on the 'your-proposed-to-scrap' study loan?
About 80 per cent of the loan recipients are students from the middle and low income brackets. You 'takpa la' because you and gang are rich enough to send your kids abroad. Many Malays can't afford that, and that's why they really appreciate the PTPTN.
The so-called PTPTN 'fiasco' over Unisel was, I think, part of the political script to trap you, Anwar and the rest. As the propagators of the anti-PTPTN rally, you are now aware of how important the loan scheme is for many Malaysians.
I am also of the believe that it was a 'small test' to you and Anwar. You people finally fell into your own trap. Remember the saying - he who digs a pit for his brother will himself fall into it? You asked for it, and you got it right away!
So, you want free education. The Opposition slamned the government for building more schools, more 'sekolah agama' and more Chinese schools nationwide. You criticised the government for giving various incentives to boarding schools and public colleges. You even chided the ruling party for showing great emphasis towards education, claiming that it's all politically motivated.
The anti-PTPTN students you support were also asking for scholarship, instead of study loan. Do you have any idea how many million of them are at the public and private colleges and universities? Do you want to sponsor 'half past six' graduates who only enjoy the money and walk off with no scroll?
Come on la. You better tell the students to proof they are fit to receive the scholarship. I am not sure if DAP gives away scholarship to students and if it does, do you have any figure as to how many of them really excel?
If Pakatan Rakyat wins the next general election and forms the government, can you promise free education and scholarship to all who enroll at colleges and universities? Don't 'cakap tak serupa bikin'. And how many countries in the world do that? Compared to the number of our population and our economic strength, are we capable of that?
So, what's the fuss about Unisel PTPTN? I thought you would support and commend it as an initial move to abolish PTPTN. Let their students' parents sell their soul to raise the money for them, and Pakatan Rakyat is there to help!
So, satisfied with what you people have been fighting for all this while - to scrap PTPTN? There you are, now blaming it on Muhyiddin and Khaled.
Who set the trap in the first place? Hehehehehe....
