2 days ago|457 views
Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng today questioned the reported unhappiness of a Sarawak minister over the state's allocation in the 2020 federal budget, which was announced yesterday.

Speaking to reporters in Parliament, Lim pointed out that Sarawak ranked second after Sabah in terms of development allocations at RM4.4 billion, including RM32 million in a special grant under Article 112(D) of the Federal Constitution.

He reiterated that the special grant for Sarawak had never been reviewed since 1969, and the government had moved to double the amount for this year.
