New villages are mostly identified with the Chinese community.The plan was started by the British colonialists in their attempt to keep Chinese inhabitants living near the edge of jungles, for fear that they the communist guerrillas would support.
There are more than 600 new villages across the country, with a large number in Perak.
Faizal had said that granting the lease of 999 years to new villages was in violation of the federal constitution.
He said that under the specific policy of the Landelijke Landraad (MTN) for land ownership for the new village areas, the leasehold period was extended from 30 years to 60 years.
But Perak DAP chairman Nga Kor Ming said cases about land ownership were under the state and not the federal government or MTN.
"I feel it does not violate the federal constitution, the constitution has determined that, where land is the jurisdiction of the state government, the MTN only gives advice, that's all," said Nga today, as quoted by Bernama.
He added that granting the status of the freehold would benefit all races, that it was promised something in the manifesto of Pakatan Harapan.
"When we give permanent ownership, we give to all races and this has to be noticed.
" This is not a new piece of land. These are residential plots that are occupied by residents, even before independence. Even during the (Malayan) emergency situation there were already new villages, "he said.
