Felda settlers want changes in leadership

Felda settlers want changes in leadership

Jempol Felda settlers complain of higher debts and lack of proper management.

PUTRAJAYA: The scandals affecting Felda and increasing debts are troubling settlers.

Abdul Rahman Ramli, 58, speaking on behalf of settlers from the Felda Raja Alias settlement in Jempol, claimed the management had “absolutely failed” in its administration of Felda.

Rahman was present at the handing-over of a memorandum to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to urge them to investigate how Felda’s Jalan Semarak land changed hands today.

“As a settler, it breaks my heart to see that the management has absolutely failed us.

“Not only that, there are various scandals that Felda have been implicated in.

“The debts of settlers are also going up. Some owe Felda thousands of ringgit,” he told FMT today.

Rahman suggested that perhaps it was time Felda changed its leaders, who were drawn mainly from Umno.

“I hope all Malaysians understand our situation and why we are upset by the alleged corruption in Felda.”

Rahman was disappointed the management cannot even show settlers their accounts.

“Even with all the technology available, they can’t do something so simple.

“This is disheartening and it keeps us in very low spirits.”

It was time the settlers spoke out against such bad management of Felda, Rahman, who is also Jempol Amanah chairman, added.

“We do not have to wait for Felda to be implicated in such mega scandals before we voice out our concerns. There’re just too many scandals, just one after the other.”

New leaders can make the change for the settlers, he believed.

“I honestly believe that this is not the end of the road for us, all we need are better leaders, new ones, and we can get back on the right track.”

He said if Felda continues to be involved in controversies, settlers will lose confidence in the present administration running things.
