I wonder whether Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Shahrir Abdul Samad, really knows what he is blabbering about. He must be really dumb and his statement that the rebate system is not favoured by the people stings to heaven. With the increased fuel prices, the RM625 and RM150 cash rebate was introduced following complaints by the people the 41% increase was excessive – a scheme to lessen the burden of the people. He says people don’t care and he should prove this point, because in times of escalating prices who does not want some extra cash unless you are like the Minister earning enough not to bother about increased prices.
He further adds not many like the rebate system, is this true? Come on Minister, think before you talk, or alternatively he must have a sense of humour beyond comparison, that even in times of escalation of prices he keeps on smiling.
