KUALA TERENGGANU, May 13 (Bernama) — It can no longer be denied that the opening of the Felda land schemes has provided a better life for the settlers, who were poor when they first joined the land scheme.
A first generation settler at Felda Belara here, Mat Yassin Ismail, 59, said he was grateful for the wisdom of previous Barisan Nasional in opening Felda land schemes, from which they had benefited a lot.
“We are very thankful to the government leaders, especially Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who has enabled us to enjoy a comfortable life.
“I never expect that we, the settlers, will be so highly rewarded, with each of us getting RM15,000 per family, he said when met during a walkabout by Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said to Felda Belara here Sunday.
