The government will not use only one line to measure poverty as this may not show the real number of poor in the country, said Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

After launching a community development fund on Wednesday, he said that there must be different ways to gauge poverty to ensure no one is deprived of a proper place in the society.
