LOOKING back, Bakar Hashim is glad he did not go with the flow and take up Felda’s replanting scheme.

At a time when most of his friends in Felda Chini Timur Satu chose to  surrender the management of their smallholdings to Felda in return for replanting, Bakar stood firm as he felt something was not quite right about the agreement.

  • Well done to these minority Felda settlers who can smell a scam. It shouldn't be difficult, as there are many non-Felda farmers who are doing well with self-replanting, same goes to companies like Sime Darby, Boustead, IOI, etc.
