KUALA LUMPUR - Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has urged his detractors to show proof that Malaysia stands to lose more than RM200bil (S$67.5 billion) if the High-Speed Rail (HSR) project with Singapore is cancelled.
Umno strategic communications spokesman Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan had earlier said that cancelling the HSR project would see Malaysia lose an estimated RM209bil in gross national income (GNI) contribution and 70,000 potential jobs opportunities.
"Show proof. When we said Malaysia has RM1 trillion debt, we had the documents to back it up. Don't just talk, show us the proof," he told reporters after attending a buka puasa event at Bukit Aman on Tuesday (May 29).
