Malaysia: Muhyiddin wants to up welfare aid to MYR1,000

  • PRIME Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has suggested that the Welfare Department’s monthly aid of between MYR200 and MYR300 for needy people be raised to MYR1,000.
  • He said this proposal would be tabled at the cabinet meeting on the week of 30 Aug 20. Muhyiddin said the Perikatan Nasional government was determined to continue with efforts to help the B40 group.
  • Muhyiddin said he was saddened by the plight of this group, given the fact that the country had been independent for so long. He said life had been a big struggle for them because their income was small.
  • Muhyiddin arrived in Sabah on 29 Aug 20 for a two-day visit, his first since being appointed the prime minister in Mar 20.
