Liow: Opposition Budget has no solid foundation


SEPANG: The Opposition’s Alternative 2017 Budget does not have a solid foundation and is politically motivated.

Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said they did not know how to raise revenue to replace the Goods and Services Tax (GST) which they plan to abolish.

“They do not know about effective management of government,” he said after launching four new trains of Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) in Salak Tinggi here today.

He added the Opposition’s promise in their Budget to develop Sabah and Sarawak was to win votes from both states in the general election.

“They focus on certain areas to win votes. Our (government) budget is people-based and more realistic.”
