Pro-Lynas groups show support

KUANTAN: The Pahang Federation of Non-Governmental Organisations in support of the National Agenda (Daun) yesterday staged a peaceful gathering here to express their support for the government-backed Lynas project. About 500 members, including those from Pertubuhan Peribumi Perkasa (Perkasa), the Federation of Peninsular Malay Students (GPMS), Pekida and the Mukim Sungai Karang/Beserah humanitarian welfare organisation, were at the Padang Kemunting grounds for half an hour from 10am. Operations coordinator Zulfadzli Shamsudin said the 43 NGOsthat made up Daun called on the project to proceed as it would boost the state's economy and provide employment opportunities for the local community. "Since the Lynas issue surfaced, a lot of information had been twisted. The federation plays a role in providing an explanation. Many youths who realised this have joined us to play their respective role," he said.
