Gov’t forced to clarify April Fool’s RON95 joke

ccc

Have concerns over cost of living eaten into Malaysia’s ability to take a joke? An April Fool’s joke still making rounds today seems to suggest so. 

Reaction to the joke, on possible petrol subsidy cuts starting April 2 widely circulated on instant messaging application Whatsapp, has even now forced the government to step in to clarify matters. 

“NO reduction of subsidy by 30 sen for RON95, resulting in a higher petrol prices at midnight tonight. I want to deny this rumour. RON95 is still subsidised by 73 sen (per litre),” wrote Deputy Finance Minister Ahmad Maslan on Twitter at about 4pm today.

Ahmad emphasised the word “No” in capital letters.
