Opinion:Where is our Tamil and Chinese school allocations?

I strongly wonder why in budget 2021, there is no specific allocation for Tamil and

Chinese school.  These allocations were started by Datuk Seri Najib, 10 years ago.

Hence since then there were allocation every year in the budget for Tamil and Chinese schools,  even when Pakatan Harapan tabled their budget they followed DS Najib’s step to give allocation for Tamil & Chinese Schools but for the first we have  a former corporate leader or specificly a banker under PN not allocating any fund for Tamil and Chinese schools.

Is this the first step by Perikatan Nasional (PN) government to abolish Tamil and Chinese school by stoping their allocation. Chinese school can sustain by themselves but Tamil schools need govt fund to keep on operating.

I think PN government is planning to abolish Tamil and Chinese Schools.  For this purpose this budget NEED TO BE DEFEATED…
