BH 17/04: Kerajaan arah EPU cari penyelesaian komprehensif kepada isu kenaikan tol yang amat tidak disukai rakyat: NajibNajib wants to end toll problem. This is perhaps the best thing that the new PM has come up with so far. We are paying way too much for toll. You have read many newspaper columns and letters to editors about this. People have demonstrated over toll rates. YB Tony Pua gave a way out on his blog some months back, although some people think his proposal was too simplistic. The MCA has a committee to look into this, and there's a paper by an MP related to our good doctor here that says the solution to the problem would cost the government only RM4 billion!
Best of all, I heard even PLUS, the highway concessionaire, has got a paper done on this which could provide the comprehensive solution to the problem for the government.
I suggest the EPU, which is headed by the former Second Finance Minister, refers to Dr Mahathir Mohamad for some guidance, too.
