KUALA LUMPUR: Former MIC treasurer-general Datuk JaspalÂ Gurbakhes Singh Singh, 52, has been re-appointed as a senator for a second term.
Jaspal, who is also the Social Strategic Foundation and SocialÂ Rehabilitation Foundation board of trustees member, was sworn in as a senator
before Dewan Negara President Tan Sri Abu Zahar Ujang at Parliament buildingÂ here today.
He will serve for a three-year period effective from last Nov 2 after hisÂ first term expired on Nov 1.
Jaspal, when met by reporters, said he would continue to bring up issuesÂ that were relevant to the community at present, including youths who faced bigÂ challenges in the workforce.
“The challenges faced by youths at present are not the same as 20 years ago,Â hence if the government wants this group to continue giving their support, weÂ need to give them what they need,” he said.–BERNAMA
