Perak govt to curb misinformation on diesel subsidy implementation

IPOH: The state government will ask relevant agencies to monitor social media platforms following the implementation of the targeted diesel subsidy to ensure that no false information is disseminated.

Perak Communications, Multimedia and NGO Committee chairman Mohd Azlan Helmi said it was a reminder to ensure that the people are not misinformed.

"Strict action will be taken," he said.

He said this after officiating at the International Muaythai Competition at Huat Tian Keong Temple Hall on Tuesday night (June 18).

About 1,000 spectators attended the competition, which included 14 participants from Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, Iran, Singapore, and South Korea.

Meanwhile, Mohd Azlan said the state government is also advising the public to be careful and make appropriate judgments in understanding the government's actions regarding the subsidy.

"What this government is actually doing is to prevent smuggling and return the subsidy to more important areas, especially in the aspects of development, health and education," he said.

Meanwhile, he said any individual who is eligible but fails to get the diesel subsidy can submit an appeal with evidence to the relevant agency.

On June 9, the government announced that the retail price of diesel would be RM3.35 per litre starting June 10 in the Peninsula, while in Sabah, Sarawak, and Labuan, it will remain at RM2.15 per litre. – BERNAMA
