NFCorp denies buying commercial properties in Bangsar
I am sure that there is a mala fide in the premature accusations on the part of Rafizi, the PKR director of strategy who surely will find nothing good about what is being done by either the government or anyone who succeeded in getting the government project in an effort to produce local 'halal' beef for the 'halal hub' for both the local and international market.
Surely what is being done by National Feedlot Corporation (NFCorp) is threatening to both the non-Bumiputera and the overseas beef supplier who might see a drastic decrease of number of beef marketed by them if NFCorp could be able to produce 'halal' beef by the Bumiputera farmers since what NFCorp is doing is suppossedly to help the Bumiputera farmers by providing them the facilities to do that in the future.
Some quarters namely the non-Bumiputera and the foreign supplier from overseas are becoming agitated by the presence of NFCorp which had gotten their contract from our Ministry of Agriculture.
Hence, if NFCorp were to fail in their bid to uphold the true mission and vision of the establishment of NFCorp which is to To Lead, Structure, and Transform The Malaysian Cattle Industry Into A World Class Halal Beef Producer, the facilities of the farm and the abattoir will be handed over with much ease to those who have self-interest to see this project fail which could mean they could get the facilities freely without having to spend any cent.
I am sure that some quarters that have some secret liasson with Anwar Ibrahim would be so happy to see this project fail because if it fails, this could mean they could be getting a jackpot from the remaining facilities which could be given to someone else and this could mean another big chuck of commission which could be given to them by whoever is lucky enough to get the facilities if NFCorp were suddenly to be pronounced bancrupt from this fiasco which had been created not in a good intention.
The question I would like to pose is that from whom did Rafizi received his information because the police who is currently investigating this case and the MACC should called the person who had given him that information to ensure that the information is not being made up like some science fiction story just to put NFCorp in the spotlight.
