No fuel subsidies for East Malaysia as consumption is lower than in peninsula: Saifuddin

Don’t know about you, but that is a lousy excuse no matter which side of the pagar you are on.

Dateline 2019-10-08, The Sun:

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (pix) says vehicle owners in East Malaysia will not receive petrol subsidies as consumption in Sabah and Sarawak is relatively lower than in the peninsula.

However, he said the price of RON95 petrol in the two states will be capped at RM2.08 per litre.

He also reiterated that the subsidy programme is meant to benefit those in the lower income group.
