Fear not, Perak unity government is stable, says MB


IPOH: Investors need not fear as Perak’s unity government is stable, says Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad.

The Perak Mentri Besar said he has been chairing the weekly state executive council meetings for the past year without hiccups.

Saarani said that investors need not worry or fear as the economy is stable in the state.

“There are various high-impact projects launched and planned, including the joint venture on the RM1bil Silver Valley Technology Park.

“Several high-impact projects in Tanjung Malim, Kerian and Lumut have also been announced, with some already taking shape,” he told reporters after witnessing the joint venture ceremony at a hotel here on Monday (Jan 8) between Perak State Development Corporation, its subsidiary Perak Corp and Advancecon Holdings Berhad.

When asked to comment on an alleged plot to topple Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and his government, the Mentri Besar said such talks and allegations were among the challenges the state government faced.

“Despite being an opposition leader at one time, I would never do or say something that would shun investors from investing in the state or the country.

“We must be responsible politicians, be it for the development of the state or the country,” he added.

Saarani said the government was doing a lot to bring in development.

“So give us at least four years to fulfil our responsibilities.

“Investors need not worry because Geely came in when we discussed developing the Automotive Hi-Tech Valley in Tanjung Malim. When we said we wanted to develop Lumut Maritime Industrial City, the European Union came.

"When we said we want to develop Kerian, the Prime Minister announced the development of a high-technology park there.

“So all these are proof that we are not being rhetorical. Any sort of challenge will only make us stronger,” he added.
