Tun's Call For Cheap Farm Tools
Tun Abdul Razak stresses today that there is a need for cheaper agricultural machinery so that more farmers would be able to benefit by their use. Because of the high cost of agricultural machinery, and their spare parts, he said, only the successful and well-off farmers were able to afford them. Backward and poor farmers were left behind. Tun Razak said that the use of agricultural machinery was one of the ways in which poverty among farmers could be eradicated.
Note: This is a confession of Tun Razak— the rich gets the better share! One would see how poverty could be eradicated through machinery when the social structure remains unchanged.
