Kota Kinabalu: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) claimed that Umno orchestrated the demonstrations by Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) students nationwide over the call by Selangr Menteri Besar, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, to open the university to non-Bumiputeras.
Its education bureau chief Datuk Wong Yit Ming said this has tarnished the university's image and would affect the students' future careers.

Wong also reiterated SAPP's stand to non-racial politics as declared in its "8-Point Declaration". more...
