PKR promises to scale down and move RAPID project to Kertih

You know which box to tick.

Dateline 2012-10-05:

PKR said today it plans to scale down Petronas’ RM60 billion petrochemical project and move it from Pengerang in Johor to Kertih in Terengganu if it wins in the coming general election.

Critics of the controversial Refinery and Petrochemicals Development (RAPID) project have said that it will cause thousands of villagers in Pengerang to lose their homes and livelihoods.

“Why (do we) need to take the land of villagers in Pengerang when we have enough land in Kertih?” Wong Chen, PKR’s chairman of investment and trade bureau, asked at a press conference at the party’s headquarters here.
