KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said he was told Malaysia's MRT is better the MRTs in London, New York and Hong Kong and at par with that of Singapore.
The Prime Minister said he had spoken to someone who had travelled on other MRTs and the man said Malaysia's system is among the best in the world.
“I said, let’s try to do a ranking of MRT stations to find out where we stand in the world? The person said we are better than London, we are better than New York, we are better than Hong Kong, and we are at par with Singapore,” said Najib said in his speech when launching Phase Two of the Sungai Buloh-Kajang (MRT SBK) line here.
Najib did not reveal the identity of the man, but said that he felt enormous pride and personal satisfaction over the completion of the MRT project.
“As Malaysians, we can stand tall today that we have a world class project for the people. We are seeing not just the MRT but the shape of the future of Malaysia before our eyes,” Najib said.
