PTG cautious in approving land applications

SETIU: The TerengganuLand and Mines Office (PTG) is cautious in approving group land applications from those who illegally occupy state land to prevent shortage.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said said investigation revealed that those with land had also applied for the second time, thus depriving others of the opportunity.

He said it was the state government's desire to see that the poor were given land for housing or agricultural purposes.

"We are processing 500 land applications from illegal occupants of state land in Hulu Terengganu," he told reporters after opening Setiu Umno division delegates meeting here on Friday, May 20.

Ahmad said most of the group land applications came from Setiu and Hulu Terengganu districts.

The Terengganu Umno liaison committee chairman said that unity among state leaders was strong and the party was ready for the general election. — Bernama
