The MIC is supporting the MCA’s suggestion that the Public Service Department award scholarships based on meritocracy.
Its president, Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, said giving out scholarships based on merit would be “good for everybody”.
He, however, said that the discussion must be brought up at the Cabinet.
On Friday, Ong expressed concern again that brilliant students were missing out on government scholarships, saying that meritocracy was the crux of the issue.
