Felda - Permata Idaman

I have been following the Felda issue drummed up by the 'unholy trinity' for political expediency for quite a while now.

To say I know all there is to know about Felda is very far from the truth. At best, I am an outsider and a keen observer, although I do have folks who worked the land as peneroka (settlers) those long-ago days.

As a journalist and later a public relations practitioner, I have had some degree of involvement with Felda; writing about it, undertaking some PR-related projects and such.

To say I am proud of Felda is an understatement. Felda, the brainchild of our second Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak, ranks as the world's largest and most successful land scheme for the poor, then and now.

This posting is for those sorry arses who insist on having their blinkers on. I have nothing further to add to blogger Syed's revealing account about the Felda issue in OutSyed The Box.

All I can say is - "The answer, my friend, isn't blowing in the wind, but lies in the magic number 55."

Kama,
Felda was in safe hands when Tan Sri Raja Alias Muhamad was the Chairman as he wasn't a politician. So were his predecessors.
