Early #Deepavali joy for Indian students in public #varsities.#Malaysia #PM #Najib
KUALA LUMPUR: Public universities will make changes to their semester schedules so that Indian students can return to their hometowns to celebrate Deepavali on Oct 26.
The decision was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak during the launch of the 1Malaysia Indian Student Movement (1MISM) at Universiti Malaya here last night.
He also said that #vegetarian #food would be made available in all #universities, while bus services would be provided for all #Hindu university #students who want to go to temples on Friday evenings.
“I have instructed Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Khalid Noordin to see to the implementation of these long-standing concerns among Indian students,” he added.
Najib also announced that #1Malaysia Development Berhad would provide scholarships to poor students with excellent results to pursue their postgraduate studies.
The prime minister was responding to concerns which were raised by 1MISM president Mahaganapathy Dass earlier during the ceremony.
1MISM was established to protect the rights and welfare of Indian university students.
It has about 7,000 members from higher education institutions around the country.
Earlier, in Putrajaya, Najib said all Malaysians were hoping for the country to win the Asian Zone World Cup qualifier second-leg match against Singapore tonight.
He said the people hoped the Harimau Malaya team would give its best performance and overcome the two-goal deficit (Malaysia went down 3-5 to Singapore in the first leg on Saturday).
“I believe we can overcome the deficit because we have the skills and talent. Supporters in the stadium will also provide the right atmosphere that will give our team the advantage over Singapore,” he said after chairing the 1Malaysia Online Roundtable discussion with outstanding Malaysians.
Najib also called national coach Datuk K. Rajagopal on his handphone and told him that he would be watching the match with about 10,000 people from a giant screen in Kedah.
He told the coach: “We are changing the format of the dinner and are putting up a giant screen to watch the game. So we will be there in spirit to support the team.”

Najib: Example of smart govt-private partnership at its best
PETALING JAYA: The first Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia thrift store opened yesterday with prices of goods 30 to 50 per cent lower than the market price of similar products to help urban families reduce their monthly grocery bills. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who opened the store at the Kelana Jaya LRT station, said it was in line with his 1Malaysia concept to unite the people and help lessen the people’s burden.
Operated by Mydin Mohamed Holdings Berhad, the thrift store sells some 1,000 items, 250 of which carry the 1Malaysia brand. The items include rice, milk, noodles, beverages, diapers, tea, crackers, butter and bread.
Najib, in his speech, said Kedai Rakyat was similar to the “Restoran Rakyat” his late father, the country’s second prime minister Tun Razak Hussein, had introduced during the recession in the 1970s.
“It was to help families cut down on their expenses.
"Similarly, Kedai Rakyat aims to do the same.” He said the thrift store was a smart government-private partnership between Prasarana Negara Berhad, the light rail service provider and Mydin.
“Mydin has its own network of small-medium enterprises, they also provide packaging at minimal prices and no added frills, resulting in lower and affordable prices,” he said.
More Kedai Rakyat are expected to be opened soon as more suitable places are identified.
Items at Kedai Rakyat are markedly cheaper than those in supermarkets and hypermarkets.
For example, a packet of 10kg rice sells at RM18.99 (a popular brand is priced between RM25 and RM34), a can of condensed milk is at RM1.95 (RM2.20), and a one-litre bottle of cordial drink is priced at RM2.99 (between RM7 and RM9).
Najib said the smart partnership was an innovative idea which would also help small medium enterprises to have more businesses.
“The 1Malaysia concept is not just rhetoric. It is far from that. This thr ift store will help to lessen people’s burden.
“This is my aim. Today we see the result of it,” he said, adding that the 1Malaysia brand products could also be used to distribute to the needy in the rural areas and victims of natural disasters, such as floods and landslides.
Mydin managing director Datuk Ameer Ali said they were looking at opening more shops in Setiawanga and Wangsa Maju.
The Kedai Rakyat, he said, would operate on Mydin’s books as a corporate social responsibility prog ramme.
“The products are purchased from about 30 SMEs who are already in our supply chain.
“So, the extra volume will help bring down the cost for all parties,” he added.
