KUANTAN – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today told Felda settlers that they will face difficulties marketing their oil palm harvests if the opposition were to win the 14th General Election (GE14).
Not only that, he said this would have an adverse impact on the national economy.
Najib said that this would be the scenario because the opposition had stated that they would cancel all joint venture contracts with China if they were to come into power.
“The government’s policy is to have good relations with the economic giants of the world like India and China as well as other countries because they buy palm oil produced from oil palm harvested by Felda settlers.
“Just imagine, if they (opposition) cancelled the contracts, bilateral relations will nosedive.. .if this happens there will be no demand for our palm oil, it is not them (opposition) who will suffer but the Felda settlers themselves,
“So don’t be like Selangor, their leaders got the mandate but it is the people who had to bear the brunt do to the failure of their government to manage water supply,” he said at a “Meet-the-People” session with Paya Besar constituents in Felda Lepar Hilir 1 here tonight. – BERNAMA
