We Can’t Afford Compensation For Toll Hikes Without Toll Hikes, Says PM
SHAH ALAM: Today speaking at the Gerakan conference, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak explained the recently implemented toll hikes were necessary to fund BR1M compensation for the damage they will invariably cause to our wallets.
“Najib would love to renegotiate these 20-year-old toll agreements,” said a government spokesman, “but what can a ruling PM with his legal team and government behind him do against the might of these toll concessionaires? He really is powerless against them!”
Government sources say in the absence of a new anonymous brotherly donor, the PM will have no choice but to continue to raise funds from the people so he can buy their votes.
