Muar Member of Parliament Syed Saddiq has asked Perak MB that why indeed it was so difficult to give a quality phone to students.
His statement came hours after Saarani said that the state government has done a good job in terms of distributing smartphones to students for teaching and learning at home amid the deadly Covid-19 pandemic.
“Do not belittle students if there is no effort to help their education. What is so difficult about a good quality phone?” the 28-year-old asked.
His party Muda also tweeted, and asked Saarani to apologize and seek redress for students for bad quality smartphones.
The party said that government has money for students and it must be used for their well being and future.
Yesterday, reacting on bad quality of smartphone and criticism on social media, Saarani Mohammad had said, “When we are in trouble, we accept any alms.”
