Indian community concerned about job discrimination
Employment discrimination was a key concern raised by Indian community leaders at a closed-door dialogue, said Minister for Environment and Water Resources Vivian Balakrishnan.
It is an issue the minorities are most sensitive to, "and I think it's a perception that we must address head-on", he told reporters after the session on Wednesday.
"So the moves that MOM (the Manpower Ministry) is considering on fair employment will be of great interest to the Indian community," he said.
The three-hour dialogue with the minister and MPs Hri Kumar Nair, Vikram Nair and Janil Puthucheary was to gather the views and concerns of the Indian community about issues raised by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the annual National Day Rally nearly a fortnight ago.
