KUCHING, March 17: Sarawak leaders need to be cautious about overspending, especially on unnecessary megaprojects, says Julau MP Datuk Larry Sng.

Sng recognised the abundance of resources and wealth in Sarawak, but emphasised the importance of being cautious about overspending to avoid accumulating national debt.


He said that poor decisions made by leaders will pose a problem for future generations.

“I would rather the State government look into salvaging the existing sick projects which I am made to understand, run into billions of ringgit.

“On the whole, I feel that GPS (Gabungan Parti Sarawak) is doing a good job, and I believe they can do better,” he said in a statement issued via his official Facebook page today.

Sng highlighted how Singapore drew a sizable tourist base at a comparatively low cost, alluding to American superstar Taylor Swift’s six sold-out Eras Tour concerts that ended recently in the Lion City.

“Had Malaysia done the same, I am certain the opposition would find all ways and means to oppose and make this a religious issue.

“That to me is why Malaysia is lagging behind other countries in the region. Everything is somehow tied to race or religion,” he said.

The Julau MP stated that Sarawak has no such issues.

“We just focus on what needs to be done for the people. This doesn’t mean that we don’t have any race issues.. it’s just much less,” he added. — DayakDaily
