MUHYIDDIN Yassin says he is not aware of any cancellation of the China-backed East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project, after two ministers earlier today gave conflicting statements about its fate.

Earlier today, Economic Affairs Minister Azmin Ali had said Putrajaya had cancelled the project. Following this, Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng expressed shock at the announcement, adding Azmin may not have been updated on Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s decision.

  • This is really awkward... Ministers having conflicting news about ECRL. They are not coordinated in their messaging.. all chaotic!
    If these ministers cant even get a simple message right, how do you expect to win CH?
