NILAI, Jun 3 – The abolishing of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a gift for the people in conjunction with the coming Aidilfitri celebration, said Negri Sembilan Mentri Besar Aminuddin Harun. He hoped the move augured well for people and the country’s economy.
“All traders should comply with the move and not come up with the excuse that their stocks were bought when GST was in force because when GST was initially introduced, some traders had bought their stock earlier and sold them with the GST to reap profits,” he told reporters here, on Saturday.
He told this to reporters after attending the Islamic Youth Movement of Malaysia (ABIM) Negri Sembilan Iftar Amal programme which was also attended by its president Associate Professor Dr Zulkifli Hasan. At the event, Aminuddin also presented Aidilfitri donations to 10 tithe recipients from around here and also gave a personal contribution to Negri Sembilan ABIM. — Bernama
