He said the allocation is being provided to ensure the cost of goods in Sabah's interiors was at a low rate so that the people living in these areas could afford them.

"Actually, these goods don't cost that much. It's middlemen who take advantage to make huge profits.

"Normally, they (middlemen) will hike up prices and blame the government saying the prices were raised because of the Goods and Services Tax (GST)."
