KULAIJAYA: The Government is promising more aid such as the Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) if it gets the mandate to continue with its economic transformation programmes that have been acclaimed the world over.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the implementation of the economic transformation programmes had not only been able to spur the country's current economic growth but to also raise the national income.

"With increased national income, the Government has been able to return it to the 'rakyat' through such aid as BR1M 1, BR1M 2.0 and BR1M 3.0," he said to a crowd of more than 10,000 attending the Johor-level Chinese New Year celebration, here, Tuesday.

Najib, who is also Umno president and Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman, said if the people wanted the beneficial national economic transformation agenda to continue, they should give BN the mandate to continue governing the country.

"If the mandate is given (to BN) to form a strong government, Malaysia will have an awesome and brilliant future," he said. - Bernama
