On Sunday, October 17, 2010 the MCA party’s Kelantan state liaision chairman Datuk Seri Dr. Ng Yen Yen said that the MCA would continue to protect and fight for the rights of the Chinese population in the fields of education and business.
Dr. Ng also remarked that this was the message the party would be giving to the voters in Galas who were Chinese in a bid to attract their votes.
There were 2331 Chinese voters in the Galas constituency and Dr Ng, who was also the party vice-president, was sure of securing around 1,000 of these votes.
After concluding a meeting at the Gua Musang MCA office, with the three wings of Kelantan MCA and the division chiefs, Dr. Ng said, “There are at least one or two Barisan Nasional voters in each and every Chinese household in this place.”
Dr. Ng also remarked that the Chinese and Tamil communities had received some good news in the 2011 Budget presented by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. The budget had apportioned RM 250 Mil. to build vernacular schools to benefit the minority communities, some of which would come up in the Gua Musang constituency.
Dr. Ng also stated that the issues concerning Galas were not major ones but small and local issues.
