-THE ONE-OFF RM500 ASSISTANCE REFLECTS THE GOVERNMENT'S SINCERE & CONCERNS ON THE PEOPLE'S WELFARE
|RM500 MAY SEEM NOT MUCH BUT FOR BELOW RM3K INCOME EARNERS, THAT'S A LOT|
PRIME Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak Najib’s confident of the government’s capability to pay the RM500 to all households earning RM3K or less per month is due to the strong domestic economy we have in addition, of the growth in our domestic economy reflected by the RM22 billion increase in tax revenue last year (2010’s tax revenue was RM86.4 billion) and not because of some other reasons as implied by some quarters.
|CHECKING THE NAMELIST|
The certain quarters mentioned a.k.a the opposition, who obviously are very jealous and full of envy onto the governments’ effort in assisting directly to the people through this BR1M program, quickly brewed-up stories in their attempt to discredit the government’s aids, some even cooked-up with theories such as BR1M payments are actually “election goodies”.. for goodness sake man, the person in the ballot box during the election to mark the X in his or her choice of candidate on his ballot paper will be alone and certainly with no BN representative to force or make sure they vote for BN..face this fact, this aid is sincerely given to the people with no other intention at all.
|NO ONE IS LEFT OUT OF THE BR1M PROGRAM|
The Premier Najib made his stands brushed off this ridiculous allegations stating that the last time the government had borrowed from the World Bank was in 1998 and described the latest allegation (of government borrowing from the World Bank to pay BR1M) is clearly another desperate lie of the opposition parties.
When he initially announced the one-off RM500 payment under the 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M) during the Budget 2012 tabling in Parliament last October most people either from Peninsular Malaysia or Sarawak and Sabah were a bit sceptical whether such a program, involving maybe tens of millions of ringgit could be implemented or not.
|DOUBLE-CHECKING THEIR NAMES|
Yesterday afternoon, those who earlier might had the slightest doubts, particularly the Kuchingites whether the government is serious in implementing such an ambitious plan or such program can even be materialized had to take back their doubts or words when the first phase of the BR1M payment for the areas in Kuching here were made.
|FULLEST ATTENTION TO BOTH YB'S SPEECHES|
Both Johari, who is also Satok State Assemblyman and Fadillah who is also Member of Parliament for Petra Jaya reminded the BR1M recipients to appreciate the government’s aid by spending it on important things and not to waste their money on unnecessarily.
Other countries either in Europe, middle-east or other parts of the world are presently undergoing financial and economic problems however, Malaysia governed by Barisan Nasional (BN) led by Prime Minister Najib managed to boost our domestic economy growth strongly, against all of odds.
“We managed to achieve this (strong domestic economic growth) due to our political stability, peace, harmony and unity that we have in Malaysia therefore, to preserve or to go beyond what we had achieved today, all the people must maintain the unity among the community,” said Johari adding that he is not surprise if the BR1M if would be distributed as an annual aid I the near future if the present peaceful and political stability could be maintained.
|JO IN ACTION LOOKED ON BY FADILLAH (RIGHT) & OTHERS|
