Teluk Intan by-election: Dyana Sofya ‘incurs wrath’ of former UiTM students
PORT KLANG: The DAP candidate for Teluk Intan parliamentary constituency Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud has been ticked off for undermining Universiti Teknologi Mara’s (UiTM) role in providing educational privileges to the Malays and other bumiputras.
Persatuan Belia Bersatu Klang president Muhammad Akmal Ridzuan Abd Rahim said as a law graduate from UiTM, Dyana Sofya should realise that the varsity was set up to help the Malays and bumiputras under Article 153 of the Federal Constitution.
“She should not drag UiTM into politics to garner non-Malay votes and I do not see any need for UiTM to open its doors to non-Malays as they are accepted by 20 other public universities, apart from private universities and colleges.
“Former UiTM students are deeply saddened over her remarks,” said Muhammad Akmal Ridzuan, who holds a Diploma in Business Management from Segamat UiTM, Johor.
