She is en-listing the help o riends, some o  whom have been victims them-selves.During the 9pm incident last week, two men on a motorcycle who were wearing ull-ace hel-mets pulled up next to her carat the trac light along the roadabove the Kesas interchange oppo-site the Summit shopping mall.Te pillion rider smashed thele-rear window with an iron rodand attempted to li her 17-monthdaughter, Giselle, rom her baby-seat in the rear.

Te Education Ministry is being accused o dragging its eet in solving the problem o insufcientChinese schools in Selangor despite seven plots o landbeing allocated in Kajang.“Since 2008, there have been no announcements ornew Chinese schools in Selangor,” said Kajang MunicipalCouncil (MPKj) councillor Lee Kee Hiong.She was speaking during a press conerence at the MPKjbuilding on Monday.Te last time there was any such announcement wason Jan 30, 2008 when Putrajaya announced that ve newChinese schools would be built in Selangor.However, SJK (C) Kota Emerald in Rawang, which was opened on Jan 3 this year, remains the only Chineseschool to have been completed ollowing theannouncement.Plots o land or schools have been allocated in Sg Long, Kajang Utama and Bukit Serdang.But Lee says the land has been le barren pending thegreen light rom the Education Ministry.“Since Bandar Mahkota was established in 2005, thereis land available or three primary, two Wawasan, onesecondary, and one religious school,” she said.She said these seven plots o land were long abandonedand have since been overgrown with shrubs.Also at the press conerence were councillors Eddie Ng and S  Chandramohan who said residents have urgedMPKj not to delay the construction o Chinese schools.“But the problem is we don’t receive applications romthe ministry or Chinese schools. Tere is nothing or usto process,” he said.He explained that up until Feb 13, MPKj’s one-stopcentre had not received any applications rom the ministryto build Chinese schools in the vicinity.
