[KiniNews] Najib Abdul Razak was given a preview ride on the new Putrajaya MRT Line one day ahead of the official launch because he asked.

MRT Corp CEO Mohd Zarif Hashim said an invitation was extended to Najib after the former prime minister voiced his eagerness through social media.

Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, who officially launched the Putrajaya MRT Line today, said MRT Corp had a right to do so.

"I don't want to comment on MRT Corp's motivations... Today, I launched it and yesterday MRT Corp invited (Najib). That is their right," the prime minister said.

Meanwhile, in a separate story, Johor ruler Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar has urged the federal government to give more allocation to the state, saying that every year almost RM13 billion of federal revenue is collected from Johor.

Describing Johor as a key contributor to the national economy he warned the federal government that the state should not be treated as a stepchild, forcing it to leave Malaysia.
