Khairy ready to debate NFC issue

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 16 (Bernama) -- Umno Youth Chief Khairy Jamaluddin has agreed to debate with Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Strategy Director Mohd Rafizi Ramli on the issue of cattle rearing projects by the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC).

However, the Rembau MP said he had yet to receive an official invitation regarding the open debate.

"The only problem here is time. When I get the letter I will discuss the time and date.

"The Umno General Assembly will take place from Nov 29 to Dec 3 so it's best after that," he told reporters at the Parliament lobby, here. Last Monday, Mohd Rafizi challenged Khairy to an open debate to resolve confusion on the NFC scandal, which will allow the public to get a detailed explanation.

The opposition had alleged corruption in the government's allocation of RM250 million for the NFC to carry out the National Feedlot Centre project to rear cattle in Gemas, Negeri Sembilan.
