PETALING JAYA: The Barisan Nasional Backbenchers Club has called on the Government to stick to its 13th general election manifesto pledge to gradually reduce intra-city toll charges instead of raising them.

BNBBC chairman Tan Sri Shahrir Samad said that while the Government had yet to announce whether or not toll charges would be raised, it should bear in mind its GE13 promise.

“The main point here is that our manifesto states that toll charges will be reduced in stages and because of this the BNBBC hopes there will not be any increase at all,” said Shahrir.

The manifesto stated among other things that Barisan was committed to “the gradual reduction of intra-city tolls” within the next five years. Shahrir, who is Johor Baru Member of Parliament, said there was no immediate plan by the BNBBC to formally take up their reservations against a toll hike with the Government as there has been no confirmation of an increase.
