Bersatu youth chief calls diesel calibration programme ' half baked'


PETALING JAYA: The Diesel Subsidy Control System is "half baked", claims Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal.

"The Budi Madani assistance of RM200 for those who are eligible is insufficient," said the Bersatu youth leader on Facebook on Monday (June 10).

Wan Fayshal then went on to say that simply providing a fuel subsidy to some transportation providers in the logistics chain would not help stabilise prices.

"Bersatu youth calls on the government to reconsider the Diesel Subsidy Control System as it burdens the people by further exacerbating the rising cost of living.

The youth leader said the government should review the mechanism of the Subsidised Diesel Control System so it doesn't become a burden to the public.

"Do not make the people victims," added Wan Ahmad Fayhsal.

"The government should be more concerned about assisting citizens who on average see it as inadequate and unaffordable."
