Hulu S’gor: UMNO and PKR denies Indian poor Felda like agriculture and animal farm land

url hulu sgor Hulu S’gor: UMNO and PKR denies Indian poor Felda like agriculture and animal farm land
It has been over two years since PKR, DAP and PAS has been ruling Selangor.
There is no doubt that UMNO had oppressed, suppressed and maliciously kept the Indians out of the mainstream development of Selangor.
And the Indian poor are aware that by virtue of Section 76 of the National Land Code vis a vis the Selangor Land Enactments, Felda like land can be alienated to the poor Indians, at least to undo and mitigate the 50 years of injustices meted out by UMNO.
But PKR would not do this? Why? Why not?
80 hectres of animal farm land approved in Rasa, Hulu Selangor, says the Selangor Exco Member for Agriculture, Yaakob Sapari (S.H 22/4/10 at page 2).
But again the Selangor and K.L Indians have been denied these animal husbandry farmland by the PKR led Selangor State government.
Malaysia imports 90% of it’s mutton, 95% of it’s dairy milk and 75% of it’s beef. The Indians have been and are prepared to work hard to rear cows and goats. In fact the Indians have a tradition of doing so. The latest example we had attended involves a third generation cattle farmer, Shanmugam, who had been denied cattle farming land by both UMNO and PKR.
Both UMNO and PKR would rather see the foreign exchange flow out of the country by the aforesaid imports rather than giving the agriculture and farm land opportunities to these poor Indians for their upward mobility purposes. They are prepared to wreck the country rather than see non malays also prosper.
This is UMNO’s One Malay-sia, and PKR, DAP and PAS’ multiracialism!
But when we point these injustices and human rights violations against these poor Indians, PKR Supremo Anwar Ibrahim alleges that this is the Hindraf’s racist agenda. In this country voicing out racial injustices is itself racism! This is how they hammer down the minorities.
