MALAYSIA Tanah Tumpah Darahku

I told you so. FELDA is in deep shit. Now Mkini reports that FELDA cannot even fulfil "core responsibilities" to some 100,000 Felda settlers.

Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) has declined to respond to claims that it was facing difficulties in fulfilling their core responsibilities to some 100,000 Felda settlers.   "I don't want to comment at the moment because we are working on something," said Felda director Noor Ehsanuddin Mohd Harun Narrashid.

Here is a picture of a very worried looking Felda director Noor Ehsanuddin.

Then the children of Felda settlers (ANAK Felda) have lodged a report against FELDA with the MACC.

Former Umno senator Ezam Md Noor today joined forces with Persatuan Anak Peneroka Felda Kebangsaan (Anak) in lodging a Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) report against the Federal Land Development Authority (Felda).

Ezam, together with Anak chairperson Mazlan Aliman, submitted a memorandum at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya, urging the graft-busters to investigate the federal agency.

And finally here is Rafizi Ramli taking down the really silly defence by Felda for paying RM2.3 Billion for buying a minority stake in an Indon plantation.

PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli has shot down Felda’s defence of its decision to acquire a 37 per cent stake in Indonesia’s PT Eagle High Plantations, pointing out that the federal agency will not have any control over access to the latter’s 425,000 hectares of landank.

In a statement, Rafizi said that decisions surrounding access to Eagle High’s land and other issues would still be determined by Indonesian billionaire Peter Sondakh, who would remain in control of EHP, despite having a reduced stake of 31.6 percent via his Rajawali Group.

“This is a madness which has never happened, where a non-majority stakeholder is given the power to control the company,” said the Pandan MP, who cited findings from a CIMB Research report on EHP dated June last year.

My comments :  To the NGOs, Welfare Department, the Church groups, the Sikh humanitarian associations, the Buddhist humanitarian associationsthe political parties etc, there is another issue here.

FELDA is having problems meeting its 'core responsibilities'.  FELDA does not sell roti canai. To make a long story short they are short of funds to pay the settlers.

For the past 60 years 100,000 settlers  have depended on almost 100% on Felda for their lifeline. 

That lifeline is now under great duress.  The total population at the Felda schemes is much more than 100,000. Counting family members, dependents, second generation etc the population is in excess of 1.5 million people. 

If Felda cannot uphold its 'core responsibilities',  what will happen to all these Felda settlers, their families and dependents? How will they eat? How will they pay for their daily survival? 

A great humanitarian disaster could befall them. Could befall us.  

Do not expect the kleptocratic gomen to put on their thinking caps. 

Look at that picture of that Felda director above.  The look on his face says,

"நீங்களே இப்படி என்னை சித்திரவதை செய்வது, ஏய், ஏன்?''

He never expected that the first class flights, the cigars, the London trips etc would actually require some hard work and some tough thinking on the job. 

Folks, obviously these folks cannot make the cut. It is we who have work to do. Lets all pull together.
