KUCHING: PBB Youth Economic Bureau chief Pandi Suhaili sang praises of the newly announced budget as being a people friendly budget that aims to improve the welfare of the rakyat.
He pointed out that the government’s decision to allocate a sum of RM33.2 billion as subsidies and incentives shows that the government always cares for the rakyat.
“Many will be glad to hear about this because without government’s subsidies, some items are going to be really expensive for the rakyat,” he said when contacted yesterday.
He added the decision also brushed aside the fear among the rakyat that the government will do away with subsidies as a way to reduce the government’s spending.
Pandi, who is also the PBB vice youth chief, welcomed the move to increase the salaries of government’s employees from RM80 to RM320 in accordance to their grade.
