Political power enables Malays to have better education, PM says

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the 2017 Bumiputera Education Tour (JPB) Programme was clear proof that the government always viewed seriously the education of Malay and Bumiputera children . — Bernama picThe power being held by Barisan Nasional, which is spearheaded by Umno, enables Malays and Bumiputera to enjoy a better life including academically.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the 2017 Bumiputera Education Tour (JPB) Programme was clear proof that the government always viewed seriously the education of Malay and Bumiputera children especially from the low income group.

“Why is the position of Malay and Bumiputera children including in Sabah and Sarawak and Orang Asli much better?…because of Umno’s struggle which brings changes including via the JPB programme.

“Don’t expect the opposition, headed by the DAP, to implement such a programme. We must understand this. What we witness today cannot be separated from political power because it decides the possibility of everything taking place,” he said.

He said this in his speech when launching the 2017 JPB programme which was attended by 15,000 people at the Bera District Council Field here today.

The event was also attended by Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob, Rural and Regional Development Minister-cum-2017 JPB mentor, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Also present was the JPB Main Committee chairman Prof Emeritus Tan Sri Sahol Hamid Abu Bakar. Najib said, without the JPB, it would be quite difficult for higher education institutions to open the opportunity to Malay and Bumiputra children from the poor group (B40) to obtain a second chance to change their future via higher education.

“They have a desire to succeed, change their lot, and hope for a chance, but if they are poor, and no chance is given, they will not have self-confidence.

“Maybe, the fear of being rejected if the higher educational institution imposes excessively high condition,” he said.
Najib was also thankful the JPB programme, which was held since last year, had also helped 37,324 Bumiputra and Malay students enter higher education institutions in the country to date.

Of the total, he said 20,370 qualified applications had been identified and accepted, while 16,954 students received direct offer letters from 11 educational institutions involved in the programme.

He said the 2016 JPB programme was held for three months from March to May last year in 55 parliamentary areas of focus nationwide. In this regard, he hoped the 2017 JPB would enable 50,000 students to further their studies not only at public higher education institutions but also in skill training colleges and at technical and vocational-based study centres.

In addition, he said the government also did not forget to sponsor Bumiputra students in the country, through sponsorship programmes like the Bumiputera Education Leadership Foundation (YPPB) with 5,659 students assisted from 2012 to 2015 among others.

“A total of 39,243 students also received Public Service Department scholarships while Mara helped 353,817 students from 2011 to 2015,” he said.

“In addition, the government also targets to have 250,000 students by 2020, whereby, until November last year, we have 165,028 students studying at 32 UiTM campuses nationwide.”

In the meantime, the Prime Minister announced another form of aid for poor students who have minimum qualification to further their studies to higher levels as Bank Rakyat would contribute RM3 million to 2,000 students for this purpose.

“Qualified students will receive RM1,500 each. They will receive RM300 each when they receive offers and their applications are approved, RM300 more when registering and the balance of RM900 will be credited into their accounts at Bank Rakyat the subsequent month,” he added.

  1. What the fuk is this mother fuker and moron talking about? Does he think the Malays with brain will buy his story? The NEP to assist the low income Malays, Dayaks, Kadazan and Orang Asli had been abused by the elite Malays in Umno Baru. All the Malays dominated government departments and agencies for more than 50 years and 70 % of the Bumiputra still depend on BRIM handouts. The Umno Baru controlled BN government has failed the people and failed to bring prosperity to the nation.

  3. Umno has been in power and controlled the economy, education, police, military and Judiciary for more than 55 years. Why are many Malay Muslims still living in poverty and remained illeraterate?

  6. The no.1 threat to Malaysia is not corruption. It is Islamisation. The Malays are getting radicalized. I dont mean the ones sipping Starbucks in Bangsar. I mean the vast majority of Malay youths from the rural heartlands to the inner cities, from the kampungs to the low-cost flats. They have no jobs, no usable education, no career prospects, no way to integrate into the global economy, all they have is their bubble of religion and race. Their whole lives they are force fed a diet of (A) Islam and (B) Ketuanan. A dangerous and toxic combination. UMNO has been feeding them Islam and Ketuanan so that UMNO can control them and it has worked for the most part. But in doing so, UMNO has created a monster which it cannot control for long and soon the monster will control UMNO.
