Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Malaysians are too dependent on subsidies for everything, even when promoting national unity among themselves.

He added that make it a Bangsa Malaysia because you believe in it, not because the government gives you a tax-free exemption for the idea.

Dr Mahathir was responding to a question at the Institute of Strategic and International Studies (ISI) Praxis Conference 2019 on Monday on why the past two national budgets did not have tax exemptions for national unity efforts.
