“We need to do away with some of the unnecessary projects, for example the high-speed rail, which is going to cost us RM110 billion (US$28 billion) and will not earn us a single cent. That will be dropped,” the 92-year-old was quoted as saying to the Financial Times.
With that, I believe projects such as ECRL, Bandar Malaysia, all those ports and exclusive industrial zones to be built by the Chinese will all be cancelled.
Hmmm...that means almost all physical remainders of Najib's administration the past nine years will be wiped out.
Well, it's only fair.
Najib and gang had wanted to wipe out Dr Mahathir's legacy but they lost the fight. So, they were the ones that got wiped out instead.
Personally, I don't care much about those projects, except the HSR.
I like the idea of having a Shinkansen between KL and Singapore.
Easier for me to visit my relatives there, among other things.
I love traveling by train.
Just like in Japan.
But I guess the current government wanted to save money.
It said the nationaal debt was RM1 trillion.
But of course this was disputed,
Maybe you all want to read these previous posts of mine on Shinkansen;
Sorts of like a farewell to that dream.
