KUALA LUMPUR – Matters pertaining to a proposed toll rate increase will be decided in the coming weeks, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
He said discussions on the topic that took place at the Cabinet meeting yesterday did not result in any final decision.
Najib, who is the Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman and UMNO president, told reporters this after chairing the BN supreme council meeting here last night.
“Any leak that came out of the Cabinet meeting (on the subject) is not (the) final (decision),” he said.
He said it was unfortunate that the matter had been hyped up in the social media.
Najib also said that the meeting last night took note of the implementation of the 11th Malaysia Plan and the need to focus on rural development projects.
This included the role of the BN to determine by consensus the projects that should be implemented in the parliamentary constituencies, he said.
The meeting also discussed the post-mortem of the by-elections in the Rompin and Permatang Pauh parliamentary constituencies, and agreed on the need to step up cooperation among the BN component parties at the divisional level.
“We ask the divisional leaders to work harder if there are problems and even if there are no problems and strengthen relations to enable the machinery to function more effectively,” he said. – BERNAMA
