(The Malaysian Insider) - Datuk Seri Najib Razak must come clean on any alleged interference in the RM960 million Ampang LRT extension project or face a major campaign issue on his hands, PKR threatened today, after exposing proof that speculated tender winner George Kent consortium had failed both the technical and commercial evaluation for the contract.
PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli vowed at a press conference here that the party would "go down, campaign and ensure" that commuters affected by the line would know how their prime minister was willing to place their safety at risk.
"Let them know what kind of care the PM puts in the issue of public safety,
"We will go down, campaign, and ensure that those affected... will give a full briefing and also the full technical report... so they would know how Najib's interference in the project has placed public safety at risk," he said.
The Malaysian Insider reported last week that the speculated winner of the Ampang LRT (Light Rail Transit) system works — the George Kent — Lion Pacific joint venture - had scored one of the lowest points in the technical and commercial evaluation for the project.
Rafizi (picture) distributed today pages from the "Technical Evaluation Report" conducted by renowned consultancy group Halcrow, which had found in September last year that George Kent could not successfully deliver the Ampang LRT extension project.
