PUTRAJAYA: There is no reason to increase the price of sugar as the Government already sanctioned a hike of 11 sen per kilogramme last March, says Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin.

"A supplier had a meeting with me recently and asked me to consider increasing the price of sugar by 49 sen. I told them, no way," said the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister.
