A meeting between Dr Mahathir Mohamad and the Orang Asli community in Tasik Chini, Pahang today saw a poor turnout with just about 50 villagers attending the meet.

Locals told Malaysiakini that many of the 500 villagers had been lured away by government-sponsored events in the same area.

One of it was a cash handout of RM100 for each child studying at SK Tasik Chini.
