Lim Guan Eng said the media report was not comprehensive or was taken within a certain context.
“What I said was, we should have two governments (state-BN and federal-PH) to develop Cameron Highlands together,” he said.
Lim said Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail was the state assemblyman for Jelai, a state constituency within the Cameron Highlands parliamentary constituency, and if the PH wins Cameron Highlands, then the two (governments) could develop the area.
“But if we depend on the state government alone for the development of Cameron Highlands, it will be stuck and disrupted,” he said.
Lim asked whether Pahang, which he said had a huge debt of RM3.1 billion, would have the funds to carry out the development it promised, adding that the federal would be able to do so.
The minister said the federal government was prepared to cooperate with the state government to develop Cameron Highlands.
