BERA -- Despite repeated attacks by the opposition to garner the support of the Orang Asli and Felda Bera residents, Barisan Nasional (BN) is confident that this group will give their full support to the government in the coming 13th general election.
Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said this was because Felda residents and the Orang Asli community in the Bera parliamentary constituency were seen to prefer Umno and BN.
"The opposition has gone into the Orang Asli villages and Felda scheme to draw sympathy and votes, but the people in Bera are aware of the various development efforts made by BN, while the promises made by the opposition have been empty ones."
He was speaking at a gathering with more than 1,000 Umno Bera Goodwill Volunteers (GV) at the Rakan Muda Complex, here, today.
He said there were 49,341 registered voters in Bera, comprising 58 per cent Malays, 32 per cent Chinese, five per cent Indians, and five per cent Orang Asli and others. -- Bernama
