ROMPIN, April 28, 2015:
PAS’ Standing Committee of Environmental Management chairman Andansura Rabu said a total of 305 Felda settlers have joined PAS for the Rompin by-election.
“Last night we received more applications from 100 Felda youths who are the second generation of the government agency.”
The Beserah state assemblyman said the settlers joined the party following the recent “Perhimpunan Selamatkan Felda 2.0” held in Keratong.
“This shows that the reception towards PAS is positive and this is encouraging.”
PAS is slowly making headway in the settlements by raising issues concerning Felda Global Ventures Sdn Bhd.
Banking on Felda chairman Tan Sri Isa Samad’s 2011 appointment prior to the plunging of the government agency’s shares, Andansura said more settlers were becoming brave.
“It is positive to see that many of the younger generation are showing their courage by coming out in the open to support us.
“We hope many others will do so in the future.”
When probed whether more would be joining the Islamic party in the coming days, Andansura said the number was going to get bigger.
“We believe more will be joining PAS in the next few days.”
