‘Cooperation to implement subsidy reform plan a national duty’

TEHRAN, Sept. 19 (MNA) -- Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani says it is necessary that people cooperate to implement the subsidy reform plan.

Cooperation of all people in redirecting subsidies is a “national duty”, Rafsanjani said in a gathering of students in Tehran on Sunday.

He also advised people to refrain form extremism. However, he said “constructive criticism” is necessary for national progress.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the former president stated that one of the most important objectives of the 20-Year Outlook Plan (2005-2025) is to achieve academic and technological progress, and called on students to make efforts to fulfill that goal.
