Police report lodged against Selangor government - NST

SHAH ALAM, Mon.: May 19, 2008

An unemployed graduate has lodged a police report against the Selangor government, claiming it has misled the people on its education cash aid for diploma and degree-level students.

In his report at Section 7 police station here today, Mohd Shaid Rosli, 26, claimed that the Pakatan Rakyat government had failed to honour its promise of awarding RM1,000 cash aid to all students who had secured places at universities.

"They had promised to award RM1,000 to all students who gain admission at the universities, but yesterday they (Selangor government) said the cash will be given to diploma and degree-level students from families earning less than RM1,500 a month. This is misleading,” he told reporters after lodging the report.

Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim was reported as saying yesterday that the cash aid would begin with diploma and degree-level students from poor families earning less than RM1,500 a month.

The aid is for the less well to do , they need it the most.
If that university level student feels that he is a well qualified poor , he is welcome to claim it.
It is better for PR not to gives out money in the future .
Bookshop voucher or meal coupons will be better for students , with the voucher they can exchanges it with books or required materials.
Students tends to spend money unwisely like topping up their prepaid mobile phone and getting a brand new mobile.
***not all , but most of them are***
