Policies and progress under Barisan Nasional to ensure the social wellbeing of the rakyat.

During the day I would work at the factory, followed by a part time job at a restaurant.
At night I would sew clothes for extra income. I worked myself to the bone. I had limited time with my family as I was too busy working.
With the sewing machine I received courtesy of the government,
I now support my family with the income I make from sewing clothes. But the income I make from this depends on demands. In a good month like the Raya month, I can earn about RM400.
So for people like me, when the government announced RM1,200 in BR1M, we are very grateful to the government. It may not seem much to the city folks,
but for me and my family it is a huge amount. Enough for me to buy kitchen necessities, school needs for my grandchild,
pay my bills and even have some extra money to keep for my savings.
Jadi bila Kerajaan umum BR1M sebanyak RM1,200, saya cukup-cukup gembira dan bersyukur. Mungkin buat mereka yang tinggal selesa di bandar jumlah itu kecil, tapi bagi saya dan keluarga,
jumlah itu cukup banyak. Dengan duit itu saya boleh beli kelengkapan rumah, beli barangan sekolah cucu, buat bayar duit api dan air, buat simpanan untuk masa depan saya juga.

RM6.8 billion was allocated for BR1M in Budget 2017. Tai Lee Lee is one of the 7 million beneficiaries of this.
The Barisan Nasional government has spent RM26.1 billion since 2012 on BR1M on top of many other initiatives
introduced to ensure the social wellbeing of the vulnerable groups in society are protected.
