ELEMENTS of corruption added to the prohibitive cost of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail (HSR), said Economic Affairs Minister Azmin Ali, explaining why the project had to be deferred.

Addressing a crowd of 800 at Pakatan Harapan’s final ceramah at Batu 11, Cheras, last night, Azmin admitted that the HSR was a good project which could connect two countries and stimulate economic growth.

  • Yes all the DUMBO cronies for the HSR (from the PDPs, main Contractors, sub cons, suppliers) were already lining their pockets to receive big pay cheques...all at the expense of the government and people.
    Those who have taken loans to ready themselves for the project will now be in a dilemma!
    Good go quickly now and sell your new merc CLS, Beamers, and what not, before the bank comes after you!
