Is This A Miracle Or Plain Bullshit?
Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs deputy director-general Iskandar Halim Sulaiman said sugar suppliers have kept their promises and are supplying more than enough sugar for the domestic market. Consumers are also no longer restricted to buy one kg of sugar per person.
He said complaints over shortage of sugar has also stopped and his officials are monitoring areas where the commodity needed to be sent.
Iskandar said sugar is being transported to Pahang daily and all other States are getting their regular supply.
**** While at the very moment this big lie was being told by the Deputy DG, the Deputy Prime Minister was lamenting that the smuggling of sugar, which has caused a shortage of the commodity in the country, is difficult to control because it is done by many parties! He added that despite the sugar shortage, the government would not allow a price hike.
Whom do you believe? The civil servant claiming that a miracle has taken place overnight or the DPM who discusses the reasons for the sugar shortage? The choice is yours.
