The two accolades won by the defenders of the Damansara Chinese primary school should not regarded as a victory against the government, but as a reminder to the government to yield to public opinion and allow the restoration of the original Chinese primary school
The time has therefore come for the government to stop being stubborn and to give the "green light" for restoring the old school, which should present no problems whatsoever, as a very good school building is just waiting to be used.
It would be ideal if the unnecessary Damansara Chinese primary school saga could end with a third accolade - the Cabinet and Education Ministry giving approval for the restoration of the original Damansara Chinese primary school.
Certain MCA and Gerakan leaders had privately sent out signals that the Cabinet would allow the re-opening of the original Damansara Chinese primary school.at its old site - but so far, they have remained just "hot air".
There should be no further delay on this matter. In fact, Parliament should in the last two days of its meeting next week, do a national service and adopt a parliamentary motion to express support for the restoration and re-opening of the original Damansara Chinese primary school - to acknowledge that what the parents, teachers and pupils stood for for the defence of the original Damansara Chinese primary school was a legitimate popular stand deserving government support.
