Poverty leads to 10 year old Indian girl’s suicide.

hanged Because of poverty, N. Kusheri father is forced to leave the family in Penang and to work in Singapore while her mother is a factory worker.
The suicide rate in the Indian community is 600% higher than in the Malay community.
These are the effects of UMNOs’ low wages, no monthly wages very little business, educational upward mobility opportunities and poverty in particular for the Indian community which has led to both parents being forced to work with very little time for their children and with very little hope for upward mobility unlike in the Malay community.
