He said he has visited 129 places throughout the breadth and length of Malaysia’s biggest state, the most by any previous prime ministers, and allocated billions of ringgit of development fund, including the RM15 billion for Pan Borneo Highway.

 “[Therefore], in the context of Sarawak, you don’t have to worry. I am a good friend of Sarawak,” he said at the opening of Parti Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu (PBB) 14th Triennial Delegates Convention at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching here.

He said as the prime minister he wants to see that every nook and corner of the country will be taken care off, receiving fair allocations from the federal government.

“If there is any development gap, it is my responsibility as the prime minister, to rectify the problem,” he said, adding that Sarawak deserves to receive bigger allocation as it is the country’s biggest state.

The prime minister also said the federal government will help Sarawak to build its Light Rail Transit.

“There is no problem with it. We can discuss. We will help, but first the state Barisan Nasional must deliver A+ results in the 14th general election,” he said.

Najib also expressed confidence that the state Barisan Nasional (BN) will have no problem winning big in the election as shown by the 2016 state election when it won 72 out of the 82 seats.

He said the BN needs a strong mandate from the people so to form the strongest federal government.

“We are ready to take off and will soar higher and higher as a nation,” he said, stating that he is confident that Sarawak will remain the Barisan Nasional’s stronghold.

“But I want you to work hard, work smart but not overconfident,” he added.
