The price of rice may have gone down by 20 sen in tandem with the reduction in fuel price. Is that the reason then the availability of the subsidized rice which presently being sold at RM18.00 per 10kg pack, is so hard to come by in KK? The intention to make the subsidized rice available was to help the lower income group and understandably, had been manipulated by almost everyone with the biggest culprits so far, the food or restaurant operators. These vendors had taken advantage of the lower price but still maintain their ridiculous prices.
