Its the joke of the year seeing 3 Male Ministers handling these Ministries while 1 single pregnant women handled it previously. Not to forget the cost $$$$$$$$$$$ involving hundreds of staffs assigned to each minister. What a shame…….end of the day no benefit to Rakyat but only beneficial to Poli Ticks…..
