KUALA LUMPUR — Sept. 29, 2017: Right wing NGO Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa (Perkasa) today asks the government to reject the offer by Maju Holdings to take over PLUS Malaysia.
UEM Group owns 51 per cent of the company while the balance is held by the Employees’ Provident Fund.
In a statement, Perkasa vice-president Datuk Ruhanie Ahmad said the government should reject the offer in the interest of the people and nation.
He drew attention to the fact that Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani had voiced his concern the strategic asset may fall into foreign hands if Maju Holdings failed to honour the borrrowings to finance the purchase.
“The sale of this asset might cause problems to the people as users of the PLUS highway network and burden EPF contributors,” he said.
It has been reported that Maju Holdings is offering more than RM36 billion for the takeover. — Bernama
