Unisel students are the 1st victim of Anwar Ibrahim’s big mouth and empty promises when the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat Government failed to provide the free education as promised by him.
He had attacked the PTPTN study loan scheme and said if PR came into power they would provide free education but the freshies going into Unisel this month are finding out it is all lies.
Unisel belongs to the Selangor state government which means it is administered by Khalid Ibrahim and his bunch of merry men and women at Shah Alam. They not only decide what courses will be taught, they also decide who gets in and what fees are to be paid.
How come then when PTPTN decides not to provide any loan for fresh students going to Unisel, the two sons of Ibrahim kicks up such a fuss? Shouldn’t this be a huge opportunity for them to put their money where their mouth is?
It would be a perfect time for them to show that they are all for free education. Let the freshies come in to Unisel for free. Hell, cancel all fees in Unisel and let everyone study for free!
But they wouldn’t do that would they? Instead they are crying unfair.
If they can do this with assets that they already control, what makes anyone thinks that they will keep any of their promises if they ever come into power.
That is the problem with Anwar and his merry people, they keep on making impossible promises and then use them to measure it to others when they themselves cannot fulfil them.
Meanwhile the hundreds of freshies in Unisel is suffering because of these empty promises.
