With the theme ‘With BN For A Greater Malaysia’, the manifesto launched by Prime Minister and BN chairman Datuk Seri Najib Razak today also promised to write-off Felda settlers’ debts from the purchase of FGV shares.

BN also proposed to create a special grant for replantation worth up to RM7,500 per hectare for each qualified Felda settler in the next five years starting 2018. This grant is to reduce up to 70 per cent replantation debt of the settlers.

The manifesto featured a promise to allocate a special fund of up to RM300 million to write-off extraordinary or extreme debt of all qualified Felda settlers for the next five years starting this year.
