I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Tun Dr Lim Keng Yaik. He was a man of great character whose absence leaves our country poorer.
In an illustrious career that spanned five decades, Tun Dr Lim proved to be an inspirational politician driven by a deep commitment to public service. As a Cabinet minister for 22 years, he served with distinction and played a big part in our country’s transformation, helping to build a stable and prosperous society. All Malaysians owe him a debt of gratitude.
Tun Dr Lim was not just a great leader, but a great Malaysian. He was a fighter to the end and we will miss him. Our thoughts now are with his family and close friends.
