Removing fuel subsidy a discriminatory act

THE government’s fuel subsidy rationalisation plan has been justified by some quarters by claiming that it will lead to less than one percent increase in the monthly household spending on fuel for a family with an income of about RM5,000.

This argument does not hold water simply because it only looks at the actual spending on fuel incurred by households.
