Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng was told to stop the political persecution of Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TAR UC).

MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, in making the call, told delegates at the party’s annual general meeting on Sunday that Lim had for the last one year, interfered in TAR UC, which is governed by all relevant laws.

"An officer from the Finance Ministry on Nov 26, suddenly presented a letter at the TARC Board of Governors meeting stating that the board is illegal because the trustees are all MCA members.

"This is a shock to us," said Dr Wee. MCA has been opposing to the finance ministry’s policy of not giving matching grants to TAR UC if the institution does not sever ties with MCA.
