BALAKONG: MCA by-election candidate Tan Chee Teong is taking Deputy Works Minister Mohd Anuar Mohd Tahir to task for trying to confuse voters on the issue of toll abolishment.

He says Mohd Anuar’s statement is different from the one made by Works Minister Baru Bian.

“To help Pakatan Harapan candidate Wong Siew Ki win, Mohd Anuar is willing to trick Balakong residents.

“He said the federal government will abolish tolls in stages, but this conflicts with Baru’s statement,” Tan said in a press statement yesterday.

Citing Baru’s reply in Parliament on Aug 13, Tan said the country’s finances forbade the government from paying RM400bil compensation for abolishing tolls and that the plan would be put on hold.

And yet Mohd Anuar, during a walkabout with Wong in Bandar Tun Hussein Onn on Aug 28, said the abolition would be done in stages.

Tan claimed that on the same day, Baru had said no study on toll abolishment was done.

“It is regrettable for Pakatan to sacrifice their integrity to win this by-election,” he said, adding Wong should have reprimanded Mohd Anuar for misleading Balakong residents.
