82 Tamil schools to be relocated in Malaysia
Jasin (Malaysia), July 12 (ANI): Eighty-two Tamil schools with less than 25 pupils each in Malaysia will be relocated to suitable locations to benefit more children of the Indian community.
Malaysian Indian Congress deputy president Dr S. Subramaniam said 69 of the schools had fewer than 25 pupils each while the other 13 had fewer than 10.
Most of the schools are located in estates where the population has declined after many workers moved to new housing areas, he told reporters after laying the foundation stone of SJK (T) Merlimau's new building.
The new RM6.3mil building will be built on a two-hectare site. It is expected to be completed by 2013, The Star reports.
Dr Subramaniam said the relocation of the schools would be done in stages depending on the allocation provided by the Education Ministry. (ANI)
