  • Khazanah and EPF already control Plus. Why need to bring in Maju Holding? Government can control Plus. Just reduce the toll rate. Don't have to abolish now.

  • Regardless if its plus or maju or whoever for that matter for the man on the streets, If its well documented in the proposal which later translated into a biding contract that says no more price hike and that the roll rates would gradually be reduce with a time frame tight to it and eventually its handed back to JKR to maintain it or if the concessionaires wants to maintain it a different contract should be on the table for other bidders to participate with a clear scope of work and cost effect to it be established. Don't make these highways where we Malaysian has to pay until kingdom comes.
