BANDAR TUN ABDUL RAZAK, July 7 (Bernama) -- Bandar Jengka in Pahang has been renamed Bandar Tun Abdul Razak in honour of the country's second Prime Minister whose land reforms were strategic to rural development.
 
Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced the name-change when addressing more than 30,000 Felda settlers here.
 
Launching Hari Peneroka (Settlers Day) celebrations, the Prime Minister said that more than RM300 million had been allocated for development of the area over five years.
 
He told reporters later that the success of the Federal Land Development Authority in bringing progress through land reforms was recognised world-wide.
 
"The success of Felda benefited not only people in the rural areas but spilled over to the urban community," Najib said.
 
Najib, in his speech, said that RM250 had been set aside for the integrated development of a sports complex and a business centre.
 
He said the sports complex, including a stadium, would be built over three years at a cost of RM87.9 million.
 
The stadium will be the home venue of the Felda United football team.
 
The Prime Minister also announced an allocation of RM50 million for the building of 500 units of houses for the new Felda generation scheduled to start this year.
 
For every unit, Najib said, Felda would provide a subsidy of between RM20,000 and RM25,000 to help the new generation own the houses.
 
The housing scheme would be extended to ten Felda areas throughout the country, he said.
 
Najib said that RM50 million had been earmarked to repair the houses of Felda employees.
 
Other allocations announced included RM10 million for the building of an integrated transport terminal.
 
The Prime Minister also said that Felda now had assets totalling more than RM30 billion, of which RM 10 billion was in cash.
 
Allegations that Felda was bankrupt were baseless, Najib told the gathering.
 
Also present were Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob and Felda chairman Tan Sri Isa Samad.
