HULU SELANGOR, April 22 2010 (Bernama) -- Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, wife of the prime minister, campaigned on Thursday for the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate in the Hulu Selangor by-election, asking the people of Felda Kg Soeharto to vote for P. Kamalanathan come polling day on Sunday.

"It does not matter if the candidate is not a Malay. He is a Malaysian citizen and has promised to work. As the elected representative, you can meet him when you have a problem and he will convey the matter to the senior leaders," she said when launching the "Program Sentuhan Kasih 1Malaysia" (1Malaysia Touch of Love Programme) organised by the Badan Amal dan Kasih Negeri Selangor (Kasih).

Also present at the event were Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, Umno Information Chief Datuk Ahmad Maslan and Kasih vice-president Prof Datin Seri Aishah Salleh.

Rosmah said the people there should remember and appreciate the BN's deeds in championing the cause of Felda settlers for years.

"The BN government has given attention to the progress and welfare of Felda settlers, and some among them have become millionaires and the children of the settlers hold top posts as well.

"If we want the future of our children to be bright, elect the Barisan Nasional (candidate)," said Rosmah, who is also president of Kasih.

Rosmah also contributed RM1,000 each to seven community-based rehabilitation centres in the Hulu Selangor constituency to fund their training programmes and activities.

At the same event, Ahmad handed over housing loan documents to 49 settlers of four Felda schemes in Hulu Selangor.

"The allocation was approved by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak when he was here early this month. The total fund is RM6.1 million for 158 settlers in Hulu Selangor.

"The purpose is to renovate the houses of the settlers. Datuk Najib wants a change. We want them to experience a change in livelihood, we want to take care of their welfare," he said.

Ahmad said that on the average, interest-free loans of RM30,000 and RM40,000 were given to eligible settlers and had to be repaid in 20 years at less than RM300 a month.

Kamalanathan is facing Datuk Zaid Ibrahim of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) in a straight fight in the by-election, which is being held following the death of the Member of Parliament, Datuk Dr Zainal Abidin Ahmad of the PKR, on March 25.
