‘We do not only want to see the ‘vacancies’, ‘allocation’ or ‘registered’ numbers offered to the Indian students for Matriculation Programme, but we want to see it in a more transparent manner’ comments V. Sivakumar, Tronoh State Assembyman referring to the Education Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s statement in The Sun daily on 3 July 2012.
