The 20 percent oil royalty increment requested by Sarawak government recently is over and above existing allocations to the state according Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem in a special RTM broadcast yesterday.
“The opposition is pretty clever, when we pull the carpet from under their feet, they said maybe if the Federal government agree to the 20 percent hike, they will pull back [existing] developments allocations,” he said.
It is not as though the Federal will give with their right hand, and pull back using left hand. That’s not happening.
“We’re aren’t that stupid… what we requested is over and above. On top of what we’re getting,” he clarified.
Thumbs up to the CM. Watch below.
