Budget 2022 will focus on helping people, especially in tackling the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, said Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. The national budget will be tabled by the government later this year.
“If we have the money, we will use hundreds of billions even to assist the people and that will come, InsyaAllah,” said Tan Sri Muhyiddin during a special discussion broadcasted over RTM and Bernama TV.
The prime minister said that the government had currently implemented various initiatives to help all affected vulnerable groups following the pandemic.
“Assistance continues to be given so that the effects of the pandemic and tighter control imposed will not have a significant impact until people have to live in difficult conditions, (become) paupers… I don’t like to hear that,” said Tan Sri Muhyiddin.
“As Prime Minister, I feel sad and that is why we try to help as much as we can and are capable of,” he said.
