Turn the volume down

Loudspeaker: Subsidised fuel will be limited...

Drivers: It’s very shrill. Will it happen or not...

VP Boediono has criticised the volume of loudspeakers used to broadcast the Muslim call to prayer, appealing to mosques to turn the volume down. The government meanwhile, which is bombarding the public with calls to limit subsidised fuel use, announced that a fuel management program will “definitely” be launched in May, only to declare a few days later that the plan was still being deliberated.
