Kota Kinabalu: Sabah MIC on Monday assured that the Barisan Nasional (BN) Government will never break its promises.

“The BN Government is indeed a government that fulfils its promises,” he said.

When Najib was appointed the sixth Prime Minister, he planned various strategies so as to help people with low income.

The Federal Budget 2012, Datuk V Jothi said, is one example where it is geared towards improving the people’s lives.

In education, aid is provided to the pupils including secondary students and also students at institutes of higher learning. “There is also a special fund to repair schools, purchasing of equipment and construction of additional blocks,” he said.

In addition, he said, the government also conducts various programmes to spur the people’s economy from time to time.

To top it up, the government also distributes aid directly to the people via its transformation programmes such as the First House Scheme, 1Malaysia Housing Scheme, Fishermen Housing Scheme and People’s Friendly Housing Scheme.

He said the government recently distributed RM500 to each family that earns less than RM3,000 a month.

“In Sabah, almost 356,000 people have received the Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) scheme,” he said.

Jothi also expressed the Indian community’s gratitude to the State and Federal Governments for their concern and aid such as the RM800,000 to repair temples and also for Indian associations throughout the State.

On this, he urged the Sabah Indian younger generation who have yet to register as voters to do so now.

He said their support for the government is very much needed.
