Study aid for all top scorers under Pakatan rule

GEORGE TOWN, June 5 DAP pledged today that unlike Barisan Nasional (BN), it would ensure that all deserving top students in the country are awarded scholarships if Pakatan Rakyat (PR) wrests control of the federal government.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, who is also Penang chief minister, said in a statement that the party and its PR partners in the state already granted numerous awards to top students based on their performances.

He lamented, however, that a shortage of funds prevented the Penang government from granting full scholarships to all top scorers.

Penang does not even have any access, even to USM (Universiti Sains Malaysia), much less any universities as they are controlled by the federal government.

However, if DAP has the tens of billions of ringgit in funds available in the federal government, then all top students will be awarded scholarships that they deserve, he promised.
