Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, in an about- turn, has told the people to throw out the BN government if it persists in implementing the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

The former prime minister said that if the GST causes the cost of medicines to go up and hardship, the people must reject BN.

Speaking at a press conference in Serdang, he said, ” It is for the people to respond. If this is a burden for them, they can tell the government, ‘Please don’t add any more taxes’.”

“If you charge taxes, we will not vote for you anymore,” Dr Mahathir added.

Malaysia’s longest-serving prime minister said that not all medicines, including essential ones, would be GST-exempt.

Only medicines under the National Essential Drug List would be zero-rated.

He added that health care and everything else would go up when the GST is implemented on Apr 1.
