RM14.9mil price tag for 1km road to Sabah assembly?


A PKR parliamentarian has revealed the RM14.9 million price tag for a 0.9km-long road that leads to the Sabah state assembly building.

“Sabah Chief Minister (Musa Aman) recently officially opened a new road leading to the state assembly buiding.

NONE“The state Public Works Department (PWD) head announced that the cost was RM14.9 million,” claimed Azmin Ali (PKR-Gombak) (left) in a supplementary question during Question Time in the Dewan Rakyat today.

He argued that it was this kind of spending behaviour that may lead to development being slow in East Malaysia.

Azmin said that even in the newly-announced 2013 Budget, Sabah and Sarawak were only mentioned five times and even then not in any substantial expenditures.
