Reduce toll rate for the whole Malaysia, not only Cheras-Kajang Expressway

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s announcement to reduce the toll charges for Cheras-Kajang Highway is welcoming news for all. This will help to reduce the burden of the people, especially the poor and those in the middle income range. This show the PM is well aware of the people's burden and their wish. But I don't understand why only Cheras-Kajang? What about others?
However, the Prime Minister should not just announce the reduction for one Highway but he should make it fair for all. The toll charges should be reduced nationwide. If it is too costly for the government to reduce the charges by 50% nationwide, at least those around Klang Valley should be reduced by 50% and the North South Highway should be reduced certain percent.
Pakatan Rakyat called for toll abolishment nationwide but that is impossible, or if they really push their way, Malaysia will be the next Greece. I am the practical type, so, dear Prime Minister; you should do what is doable.
Again, why only Cheras-Kajang? PM said that Barisan Nasional Hulu Langat Division parliamentary constituency coordinator brought up the matter, so the rate was reduced. I am here to ask, what have other BN Division parliamentary constituency coordinator around the country or especially in Klang Valley done? Don’t they know toll charges are always the burden to the working class in Klang Valley?
So, dear Prime Minister, please act now to reduce the toll rate for the whole Malaysia or at least for Klang Valley.
