REMBAU: The British colonial government was more concerned about the plight of poor Malays compared to Umno, said an opposition leader.Rembau PKR chief Badrul Hisham Shaharin made the accusation after coming to learn about the plight of an 80-year-old resident in Kampung Halt Chembong here. The resident, Hasnah Latif is upset with the amount of compensation she has received from the government, claiming that it is well below market value.
Hasnah’s land and house is among the 40 houses in the village which have to make way for the double railway track project from Seremban to Gemas which passes through the district of Rembau and Tampin. Hasnah claimed that the RM98,000 compensation is not sufficient for her to buy a plot of land and build another new house. “From day one, I insisted that I don’t want money and I told the staff at the Rembau parliament service centre to please replace my land and house, but this did not happen,” she said.
