Amid soaring costs of food, a hawker is determined to sell roti canai for as low as 50 sen.

According to a Sinar Harian report, 51-year-old Rohaizan Hassan has been selling roti canai cheaply so that people can afford them.

For that, he was chastised by fellow traders, who accused him of ‘price dumping’ to increase sales.

Rohaizan, who operates his stall in Chederiang, Terengganu, begs to differ and gave his side of the story.

There is a reason I sell cheap roti canai. I’m doing it in memory of my son, the late Mohd Syafiq Najmuddin. He died from a road accident in this area in 2019, while delivering ‘pizza’ ordered by customers.

He also wants to do his part in helping the less fortunate.

Rohaizan said there are many children but they cannot afford to spend more to feed their children, especially during this difficult period.

According to Rohaizan, he thought of selling cheap roti canai after watching a television show.

The show highlighted a stall in Kedah that sells roti canai at the same price.

After watching the show, I started to think why can’t I sell at a cheap price as well, since others can do it.
