Very few complaints on price hikes of goods and services have been received following the reduction in subsidy for the RON95 petrol and diesel, Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Hasan Malek said today.
"As of today, we have received very few complaints, for example only three from the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur," he told reporters after attending a Hari Raya gathering and opening of the Non-Pensionable Army Veterans Association building here today.
He was responding to a query as to whether the ministry had received such complaints from the public after the petrol and diesel subsidies were reduced by 20 sen.
Hasan said the reduction in subsidies did not have a big impact on the operating cost of businesses so it would be unreasonable for the price of goods and services to be hiked indiscriminately.
"I also wish to thank the traders who have not hiked their prices and who understand the government's aim of channelling the difference in subsidy to other expenditures," he said. - Bernama
i believe that it is only 3 as it is a waste of time anyway..The 3 must be the driver, gardener and maid....so why bother.
so you gauge people's response through number of complaints? Sure... let me know how it feels to have tons of them stuffing through your doors after this.
This Hasan Malek is useless just like his members in UMNO.Did he ever see twitter, Facebook, internet portal news etc.
Finish..Malaysia is going downwards instead of progressing towards 2020 if we've minister like him !!!
