KUALA LUMPUR, March 15 — MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong today rubbished a DAP lawmaker's claim that the Barisan Nasional party did not contribute funds to Chinese vernacular schools.
Responding to the demand by DAP's Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng for MCA to show gave funds to the cause, Wee further said his party was ready to do so if the opposition party did so as well.
The Ayer Hitam MP pointed out that his party was responsible for two universities in Malaysia — Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman and Universiti Tun Abdul Razak — alongside other contributions to education.
“If they (DAP) want us to declare how much, it would be shameful on them because I do not think they have given a single sen to the Chinese school,” Wee told reporters at the Parliament lobby today.
“They don't qualify to comment they have not given 10 cents. They use a Milo tin to collect money for their service centre.”
Lim, in a press conference earlier, demanded for MCA to declare its assets and claimed that some funds the party received for education were not reaching schools.
