PUTRAJAYA: The Government is prepared to accept the condition set by Kampung Baru residents who want only bumiputra developers to re-develop the area, Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Mohamed Isa Abdul Samad said. 

“If that is their only condition, I think it is not a problem to find a bumiputra developer. It is not a difficult condition to fulfil,” he told reporters yesterday after chairing his ministry's post-Cabinet meeting. 

Nevertheless, the ministry needed to study the legal aspects on the status of Kampung Baru before implementing the re-development plan, he said. 

He also said the ministry's legal adviser and legal officers from the Kuala Lumpur City Hall would discuss the enactment or the status of the Malay Agriculture Settlement. 

The status of Kampung Baru as a Malay settlement was gazetted by the British under the Land Enactment, 1897 as a Malay Agriculture Settlement. 

As a result, plans to redevelop the 103.6ha area were hampered. 

Isa said the owners' co-operation was crucial before their land could be re-developed. 

“I will meet them to explore the options available.” 

Isa also said his ministry had allocated RM1.6mil to build recreational facilities in 15 areas in Putrajaya. – Bernama
