Gerakan National Deputy Treasurer Dato’ David Ang Chin Tat today criticised newly appointed Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid over his statement claiming that “multi-stream education hinders the interaction of students of different race. David Ang dismissed the Minister’s statement as narrowed and putting the cart before the horse, it is not helping in prompting national unity, but also pawning the education of next generation.

David Ang also slammed some UMNO leaders for blaming vernacular schools whenever there is disunity or split in the party in an attempt to divert attention. Such ostrich syndrome is unacceptable, it points out their narrowed and outdated thinking and even condemning the 1Malaysia concept preached by Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak into a self-contradicting position.

“Education is the basic of nation’s development, it is a topic for politicians to juggle frivolously, the PPSMI issue a few year ago was made to meet repeating stumbling blocks because a group of selfish politicians were out to play their game, eventually sacrificing our the students who were made victims under their irresponsible antics,” said David Ang

David Ang who is also Selangor Gerakan State Chairman also opined that these ministers (including Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid) should realize that the roots of disunity stem from political factors, including the habit of raising topics with racial overtones, the unfair system in public university intake as well as the unequal and race-based economic development policies introduced by the government.
