More Price Hike Issues

From taxi fare hike in Ipoh to planned price hike of essential items by ten percent next month, I wonder whether the present government is doing anything good to minimise the impact of inflation in the country. I do agree with economist that a price hike is inevitable but I hope that the government will come up with a good plan to help people especially those poor people so that their welfare will be protected. It is insufficient to say that let the market forces decide or let the individual States head to do the job. I think that is just irreponsible.

Although the opposition party had a strong presence in making decisions on State matters, the federal government should not just leave all decisiond for them to do. Both of them should come together and a solution is needed to solve the problem and make it fast...
