Felda settlers against Anak chief's talk

Published:     Modified:

Several representatives of Mata Ayer Felda settlers have lodged a police report against Mazlan Aliman, president of Persatuan Anak Peneroka Felda Kebangsaan (Anak), because they fear his plan to hold a political ‘ceramah’ (talk) at the scheme can disrupt public order.

They are Omar Bakar, head of the Mata Ayer Felda settlers; Roslan Ismail, chairman of Kami Anak Felda (Kaf) Mata Ayer; Ismail Bakar, chairman of the Mata Ayer Village Development and Security Committee and Firdaus Amir Abdul Aziz, chairman of the Mata Ayer Felda Malaysia Youth Council.

The four representatives met reporters after making the report at the Padang Besar District Police headquarters today. Also present was Titi Tinggi state assemblyman Khaw Hock Kong.

Omar said Mazlan, a settler of the Bukit Ramon Felda scheme in Johor, planned to hold the talk at the house of a Mata Ayer Felda settler on Jan 14.

“It is feared that the programme will stir up dissatisfaction among the settlers who dislike the politics of hatred,” he said, adding that several talks held by Mazlan at other schemes did not go down well with the settlers.

Roslan said they strongly opposed individuals who indulged in the politics of hatred and propaganda against government policies.
