Malaysians: Why can’t ministers continue using local cars?

The government’s decision to replace cars used by ministers with the 2.5L Toyota Vellfire has received backlash.

Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tzin had instigated the issue on Facebook and sarcastically congratulated the Federal Government on their ‘Vellfire assistance’.

He said, “Young people received a one-off RM150 and civil servants received RM700 special incentive as announced in the budget. The people were surely happy with this assistance.”

“However, behind all of this, these ministers from the Federal Government coalition received a ‘Vellfire assistance’ of RM5,795.35 per month. Congratulations!”

Malaysians have also shared similar sentiment urging the government to reverse its decision.

Yen Leong disagreed and was disappointed that the government is not supporting local brands like Proton.

She said, “They should use local proton X70 or X50. We the Rakyat are using it to support the country’s local produce. Why can’t they show the same support?”

Azid Barja wants the people to think carefully about who they vote for in the 15th General Election.

“To those ministers driving the Vellfires, your supporters may not vote for you after this,” he said.

He reasoned that their supporters work hard for the country and contribute taxes but only the politicians are benefiting from it.
