ALOR SETAR: MCA will continue to speak out on sensitive issues affecting the people without fanning racial sentiments, party president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said.
Citing Chinese primary schools as an example, he said allocations for them should be based on a need basis and handing out allocations on an ad hoc basis, like during the general election or a by-election, was not the way to do it.
“You must not simply take paracetamol for headaches. You must find out the cause of the headache (and find a cure),” he said at the Jerlun MCA parents’ day celebrations here on Thursday night.
Dr Chua said the Barisan Nasional and MCA might not be perfect but changing the Government was not the solution either.
On the Opposition, he said the people must question them on the pledges they made in the general election.
