KUALA LUMPUR: Owners and beneficiaries of Kampung Baru land have agreed on plans to redevelop the area which will retain 100% bumiputra ownership.

The decision was made yesterday during a discussion between Federal Territories and Urban Well-Being Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin and 50 representatives of the owners and beneficiaries.

“Now, we’re speaking in one voice (on the redevelopment of Kampung Baru),” said Raja Nong Chik at a news conference after the meeting.

He said those in the meeting had agreed on the plans and wanted them to be carried out comprehensively without affecting the bumiputra ownership involving 222 Malay Agriculture Settlement (MAS) areas and 32ha of government-owned land.

He said the Kampung Baru Development Corporation would be established next year after it was approved in Parliament.

Several government-linked companies such as Permodalan Nasional Berhad, Lembaga Tabung Haji and Pemodalan Hartanah Berhad had been enlisted for development purposes, he added.

“Among other proposals agreed upon was that MAS land awarded by the Sultan of Selangor will remain as being owned by the Malays.” — Bernama
