Govt needs 6 months to tackle diesel subsidy leakages, says Salahuddin

THE government needs at least six months to deal with the problem of diesel subsidy leakages in the country, said Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister Salahuddin Ayub.

He said this will give parties in charge reasonable time to identify the causes and mobilise the necessary assets to curb diesel smuggling activities, which is among the causes of subsidy leakages.
