Mahathir blog: Najib was my hope, but he broke his promise

Former Malaysian prime minister Dr. Mahathir Mohamad has unleashed a scathing attack against Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, saying that the prime minister broke his promise to build a crooked bridge between Johor Baru and Singapore, according to a report in The Star Online.

In a five-part interview uploaded on a blog, Din Turtle, two days after Najib’s television interview, Dr Mahathir responded that the Prime Minister had supported the project when he took over office from Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

“He was my hope after Pak Lah (Abdullah) resigned. He said he would build the bridge when he became the prime minister even if Singapore opposes to it. But he didn’t do,” claimed the former premier.

Dr Mahathir said he was unhappy when Najib broke his promise and appeared to “kowtow” to Singapore for not proceeding with the project. Read more
