PARIT BUNTAR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim announced an increase in the rate of the Rice Price Subsidy Scheme (SSHP) from RM360 per metric ton to RM500 per metric ton with effect tomorrow.

This was announced by the Prime Minister when he spoke of inaugurating the Majlis Touch of the Negeri Perak Rank Agromadani at the Kerian Lermai Council, here today.

Also present was the Minister of Agriculture and Food Security, Datuk Seri Mohamad Sabu.

When announcing the increase in subsidies, Anwar was cynical, insinuating those who had previously frequently attacked him personally by quoting the phrase 'today public, tomorrow down'.

The paddy fields have not received an increase in rice subsidies, as early as the end of this month.
