In a written parliament reply by Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz in response to Bayan Baru member of Parliament (MP) Sim Tze Tzin, it has recently been revealed that the official vehicle for cabinet ministers has been changed from a Proton Perdana 2.4L to Toyota Vellfire 2.5L due to a cheaper lease since March 2020. 


 


To be specific, the government spends RM5,759.35 for each Toyota Vellfire, distributed to all cabinet ministers, and up until September this year, the government had paid a total of RM1.42 million to the concession company.

Naturally, Malaysians were understandably upset at the numbers, as it could have been allocated towards greater causes— anything related to reliving the livelihood of the public after the devastating pandemic, for example.







With suicide cases significantly rising following the hardship caused by the pandemic, the financial struggles, and the collective decline in mental health, the government could have done better. 


Oh well.
