The mainstream media have been reporting that Malaysia and Singapore have ended their deadlock on key issues – but have all the prickly issues raised by Mahathir in the past been resolved?
Could we have the valuations for all the plots of land concerned so we know it’s a fair deal.
The Star reports that the key features of the latest round of talks were:
> Relocating the KTM railway station from Tanjung Pagar to Wood-lands;
> Setting up a joint company M-S Pte Ltd to develop six parcels of land in the republic; and
> Developing a rapid transit link between Tanjung Puteri in Johor Baru and Singapore.
Both leaders also agreed that Khazanah and Temasek will form a 50-50 joint-venture company to develop an iconic wellness township in Iskandar Malaysia.
The other question is why wasn’t all this discussed in Parliament first? Wide public consultation, at least in Parliament, is needed on issues involving sovereignty, national and public interest.
