Ameer suggested that the funds used for the holiday could be better utilized, such as by lowering the prices of Menu Rahmah and other goods, which would benefit more people.
He emphasized that the government should prioritize the people’s welfare over populism. Ameer also commented on the toll exemptions during the Aidilfitri period, stating that not all travelers require such subsidies and those who can afford to pay should do so.
