The proposed second round of the 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M) payment has not only been lauded by the people, but has also created hope that the payment would be more than RM500.

Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (JPM) Datuk Ahmad Maslan said the hope was conveyed to him when he went to the ground to meet with the people.

“Most of them are hoping to get more than RM500. Most of them spent the money away when they received it the first time. So, clearly the BR1M payment has also helped boost the country’s economy,” he said at the seminar on Understanding Wassatiyah and 1Malaysia Concept.

However, he said it was up to the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to decide the amount for the second BR1M.
