SUDDEN HIKE IN POSTAGE STAMP RATES

With the coming of the Chinese New Year celebration on 26 January 2009, and as usual among Malaysians to send greeting cards to their relatives and friends, were surprised to learn that the cost of postage stamp rates for sending these greeting cards had soured to 50 sen without prior notification from Pos Malaysia.

It was reported that MCA, a 'big brother' of the ruling Barisan Nasional government, when it had approached Pos Malaysia have not received a proper reply but some officials at Pos Malaysia have just quoted that the customers could take a risk to posting these greetings at old rates and take their chances on delivery.

The time has come for our 'uncaring, ineffective, inefficient, arrogant and corrupted' Barisan Nasional government to give the rakyat a clarification on how Pos Malaysia could raise their rates before government approval or that this BN government had given their permission but had fail to notify the rakyat of such a change.

The time have come for Malaysians to demand the BN government to RESIGN since with the current global recession faced, and with various assurances, a 'surprise and sudden' hike in rates seem to be made.
