PUTRAJAYA – Public Service Department (PSD) scholarship holders are asked to wait for the PSD’s report instead of jumping into false conclusion on PSD scholarships.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Wee Ka Siong said the report by an online portal (Malaysiakini) that PSD had stopped scholarships was baseless and irresponsible and had caused a panic.
“I only mentioned those (who) received the Bursary scholarships are affected. I never mentioned all PSD scholarships are suspended,” he told reporters after attending a business dialogue forum at Menara Usahawan here today.
Yesterday Wee, who is also MCA Deputy President, in his Facebook posting said the portal misquoted a report by Sin Chew Daily to which he had made his comments on the issue and he could not be held responsible if his comments were distorted.
Saddened by the report, Wee said he would refer the matter to his legal advisor to study the matter. – BERNAMA
