  • Najib Razak said the government was making an announcement on tolls just to fish for votes in the Semenyih by-election. Didnt he claimed the Batu Tiga toll abolished before the GE and worst part is that the Batu Tiga toll concessions was due to be lifted, pure liar and opportunist.

    For me any moves to reduce the toll rates and its gradual abolishment is acceptable, including the cost of living.
