PETALING JAYA: Is the government willing to bear full responsibility for any rail accidents that might arise because of the delay in completion of the Klang Valley Double Tracking Phase 2 contract, a veterans group said today.

Retired brigadier-general Mohamed Arshad Raji, president of the National Patriots Association, posed the questions following a warning by the railway workers union over the project, which has been held up in a contract dispute.

Arshad questioned why the government had cancelled the contract awarded to Dhaya Maju-Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (Dhaya Maju-LTAT), and asked if the contractor had failed in their work.

“If work was progressing normally, why terminate the contract and award it to some other contractor? If escalating cost is the problem, why couldn’t a cost review be undertaken, rather than terminating the contract?” he said.
