Stop giving lame excuses, KL told
By Zora Chan

Roads in Sarawak 20 to 30 years behind those in Peninsular Malaysia states, says Karim

KUCHING: “High building cost”, “low population” and “not many cars” are outdated and lame excuses, which the federal government should stop giving to Sarawak when the people asked for better roads, said Abdul Karim Hamzah (BN-Asajaya).

Roads in Sarawak were 20 to 30 years behind those in Peninsular Malaysia states, he said during a debate in appreciation of the Head of State’s speech.

“We’ve been told that there is no economic scale if we are to build more and better roads in Sarawak. But how long do we have to wait if the federal government keeps on telling us that Sarawak does not have a big population and not many cars?”

He hoped federal ministers would visit Sarawak more often to see the situation on the ground instead of merely depending on reports from their officers.

Karim said having studied in Peninsular Malaysia and traveled all over the state, he could really see the difference and realized the roads in Sarawak were in dire need of improvement.

Sarawak’s good performance in the March 8 parliamentary election should be rewarded accordingly, he said, adding that he hoped to see better roads in the near future.

Besides, he said, the prices of essential goods in the state were higher than those in the peninsula and as such the federal government ought to do something about it.

Touching on football, he said Sarawak’s performance had been disgraceful in recent years be it on and off the pitch.

Hence, he urged the Ministry of Social Development and Urbanization to intervene in the management of Football Association of Sarawak (FAS) and salvage the dignity of the state and game.

Doesn't this reflect the lameness of our very own Sarawakian MPs and DUNs?

I guess that is a sign of the Sarawak MP's making their "golden ticket" useful.

i was once wrote to the Star regarding the road condition. It was way back in 2005. im not sure wether they publisehd it or not. We should voice our need to the media as to ensure the federal gov notice it. If noty, they will just ignore. wat a shame !!

A centralised development instead of nation widespread development. That's why Malaysia is a half developed nation where some places are developed rapidly and yet some are overlooked and ignored.

Hmmm....
less cars + low quality roads + less population = less petrol price
