Economist Muhammed Abdul Khalid has advised the government against spending public funds on reducing or abolishing tolls and subsidising petrol as he believes such initiatives will not benefit everyone in the B40 group.

His personal opinion was that the money ought to be allocated to providing and improving public transport in rural areas instead as this would help more poor Malaysians.
