Kuala Lumpur, Mar. 20 (ANI): The Malaysian Government should address the grievances of its 1.8 million-strong Indian population in the 10th Malaysia Plan, according to a researcher.

The Star Online quoted Dr Denison Jayasooria, a principal research fellow at the Institute of Ethnic Studies, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, as saying that most government agencies did not seriously look into issues like crime, violence, urban poverty, inadequate infrastructure for Tamil schools and low recruitment and promotion opportunities for Indians.

He added that Indian youngsters must change their mindset so they can cope with the rapid economic development. (ANI)
