A minister said, Malaysia, as an OIL producing country, which sells HIGH QUALITY oil to other countries, COULD NOT afford to pay petrol subsidies to it's own rakyat (people), because of rising global oil price, and the minister also compare Malaysia's petrol price with other NON-oil producing countries, such as Singapore, Hong Kong.
Comparisons are done as below, and the minister said Malaysia's petrol price is " Among the lowest in Asia"
Singapore Petrol Price (Non Oil Producing country) = RM2++/L
Hong Kong Petrol Price (Non Oil Producing country) = RM4++/L
India Petrol Price (Non Oil Producing country) = RM4++/L
But, the minister, in his ignorance and arrogance, fail to compare petrol prices among oil producing countries, and he doesn't know the meaning of oil producing country VS NON-oil producing countries (something like comparing apple with durian)
Qatar Petrol Price (Oil Producing country) = RM0.78/L
Venezuela's Petrol Price (Oil Producing country = RM0.6*/L
Malaysia Petrol Price (Oil Producing Country = RM2.70/L (lowest in Asia?!@#$%^&@#??$)more...
Malaysia's Oil Company is selling oil, and they sell based on global oil price, and I am 101% sure there are profits made. but then the minister said global oil price is rising, and the government has no money to subsidise petrol anymore. It's simply ilogical and outrageous and a d**b statement.
Mr minister, don't think that we rakyat are s**p*d, and please, check your facts before you give any press statements regarding oil prices. If wan to compare, compare properly, and you've been fighting against corruption, wanting to make Malaysia into a transparent /fair/just country, but you are not willing to expose the details of our oil company, not willing to listen to the voices of the rakyat, not willing to step down when told, not willing to take any responsibility regarding this. What is the point of slashing 10% of all ministers and deputy ministers entertainment allowances
, where there are millions of people in Malaysia who don't earn even 10% of the allowances earned by them??????? Does it mean that the minister will compensate those people who earn less then 10% of allowance from MP's? and it states that the said minister enjoy an entertainment allowance of RM18K++.... @#%@#%@
So, does it mean that the millions of Malaysian who are not that well off financially will get those allowances? Why just 10%? why not 90%? Does it mean those people still get to enjoy life even with 90% allocation, while the rest of us rakyat
We (the 6++ million Malaysian) know that your party lost 2/3 majority in parliament, and also lost control of 5 states during the recent GE. Is that how you repay the people who have voted you in(as well as those who voted you out). Do not be suprise if during the next GE, your party will lose even the minority in parliment, as well as lose control of ALL states in Malaysia.
The rakyat have spoken, and will speak again.
