Cut out corruption and leakages and the country will have enough financial resources to provide free education right up to university level, said Anwar.
He said RM5bn per year was all it needed to provide free education to Malaysians, and with the country’s oil revenue, that should not be a problem.
Anwar stressed that Pakatan parties should tell their supporters to have zero tolerance for corruption and racism. He added that the Chinese language is assuming greater importance as an international language of business and we shouldn’t begrudge those who want their children to pick up the language in addition to Malay.
The Pakatan leader was addressing a dinner crowd at the Pay Fong Secondary School hall last night and told diners it was time to give Umno a chance to improve itself as an effective opposition party.
