MUAR – Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today calling off development projects in the country awarded to China will be “a crazy and insane” move that can be detrimental to the people.
The Prime Minister said the announced intention of the opposition Pakatan Harapan to cancel the proposed East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) if it wins the 14th general election is a political move that would be a loss for the people.
“Just imagine what will happen if we jeopardise our relations with China. If China refuses to buy our palm oil, furniture and timber, who else is going to buy them? If China does not buy, the opposition leaders will lose nothing, the people will stand to lose.
“The opposition is in a chaotic state. As such, choose a government that champions the plight of the people, that helps the people,” he said when opening the Muar Furniture Park and launching the Bumiputera Furniture Entrepreneurs Scheme (SuperBumi) in Bakri here.
Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Mohamed Khaled Nordin, Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong were also present at the event. – BERNAMA
