PETALING JAYA: Dr Mahathir Mohamad today took a swipe at Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak for pussyfooting on the scenic bridge project linking Johor Straits to Singapore.
“Why is he delaying the matter? Is he bound by some agreement he made with the fifth premier (Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) who was instrumental in cancelling the project in the first place?” asked Dr Mahathir in his blog.
The outspoken former prime minister also took a swipe at Abdullah for cancelling the project in the first place.“As far as I know, he was the only who was adamant on keeping the causeway. Even the then Singapore premier Goh Chok Thong was not against the bridge project,” he added.
In April 2006, Abdullah scrapped the scenic bridge project linking Johor Straits to Singapore, saying it was a political decision.
His decision unleashed Mahathir's fury against him as the idea was mooted by the former during his premiership. He went on a crusade against Abdullah till the latter left office in April 2009.
On June 26 this year, Najib said that he will look into reviving the project after the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, requested the government to revisit the cancelled project.
Mahathir urged the government to get the project going as the people are waiting for the government to make a decision and its dily-dalying tactics do not reflect well on the administration.
“I believe the people have the right to know if the project will be revived,” he said.
