A group representing the Parents Teachers Association of SJK(T) Vivekananda, Petaling Jaya, has threatened to take legal action unless the school cease its implementation
of the dual language programme (DLP).

When contacted, Child Information Learning Development Centre (Child) spokesperson K Arumugam told Malaysiakini that they had raised their objections in a letter of demand which was received by the school's headmistress around noon today.

"If the school does not respond to the letter within seven days, it will be deemed that the response from the school is on the affirmative for the continuation of the DLP programme."
