Shah Alam – A former Council Member of Universiti Selangor (Unisel) Students’ Representative Council (SRC) has responded to the statement from MIC youth leader Sivaraajh Chandran today on his statement regarding the Deepavali leave which will take place next week.

Ruben Raj stated that the action made by Sivaraajh clearly has its political agenda by accusing Unisel of giving only a day-off towards the Indian students without fact-checking.

“Without any fact checks, he accused Unisel of only giving one day off towards the students,” he said to The Voice.

Unisel has released a memo on the morning of 13 October regarding the Deepavali leave on 11 October, allowing the university’s Indian students to enjoy a two-day leave from 19 to 20 Oct.

“Sivaraajh never really fight for the rights of the Indian students, and out of nowhere, he accused Unisel on not being fair towards the students, especially close to the General Election. This is clearly stating that his actions have a political agenda.” He added.

“If he really wants to fight for students’ rights, he should have started earlier. Not at this moment.” He said.

Unisel has never been tyrannical

“Unisel is an institution that has always supported the freedom of expression, moreover, they are welcoming every opinion, idea and even the voice of the students,” he said.

He also advised the students to be brave and smart in channelling their voice towards the right medium as it will definitely be heard.

Ruben, who used to fight for the students’ rights and welfare, said that the management always practices justice as well as toleration towards the students.

    I dont find it fair either. ‘Lecture Exemption’ cant be accepted as ‘Festive Off’. Why double standard when it comes to us? Its clear that the management failed to be fair and let the outsiders to take opportunity to do their political games here.

    Maybe MIC is making use of this issue but the truth is Unisel is being tyrannical . Why we Indians entitled for an exceptional ?Because others wont miss a lesson and we Indians will have to celebrate the day by missing all the lessons and battle the class after the break. Why when Hari Raya and other festivals were given a day off and maybe a week off or sometimes off in name of mid term break but we Indians have to beg for a holidays?…

    What about the classes on 19 and 20 Oct ? Will the classes be run as normal while the Indian students in leave. If the classes still run in both days that shows unfairness. Students will left over their subjects. What’s the answer for this from Unisel.
