Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Ahmad Maslan says the planned assembly is politically motivated.
Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Ahmad Maslan said the assembly organised by the Save Felda Movement (GSF) would be in vain as settlers had been enjoying various benefits of Felda.
Speaking to reporters after attending a seminar on “Understanding Wasatiyyah and 1Malaysia Concept” organised by the Perlis National Civics Bureau (BTN) with the cooperation of the Perlis state government here today, he said he believed the organising of the assembly is politically motivated.
The assembly is purportedly aimed at protesting the listing of Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGVH) in Bursa Malaysia with the excuse that it is to the detriment of Felda settlers.
The participants of the assembly plan to hold a procession to the Istana Negara through Jalan Duta to hand over a memorandum to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
However, recently police had informed the organisers that the Federal Territory Mosque is a religious site and cannot be used for the purpose while Istana Negara is a protected area.
