SHAH ALAM, AUG 9: Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos’s action, trying to tarnish the State Government’s image relating to ‘weaknesses’ in Selangor University’s (UNISEL) education policy, only serves to show the Sungai Besar Barisan Nasional Chairman’s shallowness.
UNISEL Corporate Communications Director, Hasril Abu Hassan said, Jamal’s confession that his three nephews are studying in that university showed his belief in its credibility.
He said, it eventually proved that Jamal admits that UNISEL is a higher education institution owned by State Government which is in a class of its own and the preferred choice among current society.
“Datuk Seri Jamal admitted that his three nephews are studying in UNISEL now.
“Looking at it from a positive point side, Jamal seemed to admit and believe in UNISEL’s quality of education and its lecturers,” he said when interviewed by TVSelangor.
Last night, Jamal held a demonstration in UNISEL Bestari Jaya campus demanding the State Government to keep its free education manifesto in the state.
Nevertheless, Hasril informed that Skim Dermasiswa in UNISEL provides the opportunity to students to enjoy free education in foundation level.
Hasril said, graduates are given free education valued at RM12,000 for the period of one study year.
UNISEL had spent over RM912,000 for free education intakes during the last May 2016 session.
That was for students in the field of Science and Information Technology.
Earlier, Dato’ Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali in summing up the Dewan Negeri Fourt Term Conference said that free education is a part of corporate social responsibility (CSR) to the community.
He said, the free education is implemented to reinforce the ‘Agenda Merakyatkan Pendidikan’ in Selangor under the RM3.9 million allocation to sponsor qualified students under Skim Dermasiswa.
