PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is always looking for solutions to help with the people's problems and this can be seen in the recent announcement of the "Perlindungan Ekonomi dan Rakyat Malaysia" (Permai) assistance package.
"His commitment to care for the people and regenerate the economy proves that he is the Prime Minister that puts people and country first," said Wan Saiful Wan Jan in statement on Tuesday (Jan 19).
Wan Saiful, who is Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia information chief, said the commitment made towards protecting the welfare of the people and businesses is a timely move as the country continues to battle the Covid-19 pandemic.
He said the people need cash in their hands now which would enable them to buy daily essentials or afford healthcare.
He added that the eight initiatives aimed at safeguarding people's welfare will ensure they have the necessary cash they need.
He also said 10 more initiatives aimed at supporting the business community will enable small and middle-sized business owners to continue running.
"They are the backbone of the economy and when they are running their businesses, they continue to become employers who people can depend on," he said.
Wan Saiful said Bersatu is calling on the government to turn a deaf ear to detractors and continue focusing on the needs of the country and the people.
"We believe the people can see the Prime Minister's sincerity in caring for the needs of our country and how he is different from others with endless self-serving agendas. Let's continue showing him our support," he said.
Muhyiddin announced the Permai assistance package on Monday (Jan 18) aimed at combating the Covid-19 outbreak while supporting the needs of the people and the economy.
