Retaining chicken, egg subsidies is to help people, says Salahuddin

THE government takes timely proactive measures to help the people, by moving to retain the subsidies and price control for chicken and eggs, Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister Salahuddin Ayub said.

He said although the government has to bear a subsidy cost of RM200 million a month, it needs to be done to ensure people’s welfare is protected.
