A 'soothing' Budget

Congrats, Mr Prime Minister!

Obviously, it was not an election Budget. Compared with the package offered by Pakatan Rakyat, BN is continuing with its tradition to uplift the well-being of the rakyat, and NOT promising them a bridge where no river flows.

The RM251.6 billion proposed for 2013 was based on the nation's economic strength, the fundamentals and the world's economic mobility which is forecast to see some side effects of the Euro Zone's slowdown.

In general, the 1.5 month bonus to civil servants, a new BR1M scheme, personal tax insentive and a strong thrust given to the education sector are what the rakyat had anticipated and hoped for.

No 'sun and stars' are promised but it is undoubtedly an effort which reflects Barisan Nasional's honestly commitment to fullfil the country's and the rakyat's paramount need in ensuring progress, wealth, peace and stability.

With a focus to reduce our fiscal deficit, Budget 2013 themed 'Memakmur negara, mensejahtera rakyat: Janji ditepati' fits well into the 'soothing budget' bill.

A simple one, some may say but it covers the rakyat's aspiration - housing, additional tax deduction, rural transformation plan, education insentives, etc. In other words, nobody and no race will be left out.

Bumiputras businessmen continue to take the limelight. With RM9 billion worth of contract from the entire cost of the MRT will go to them, banks and financial institution will be there to give them a hand, if they comply.

So, its not an election budget like the one put up by the opposition.

Haha.

For the first time, no mention of tobacco, alcohol and imported items.

Basically its a good one, more in catering for the peoples.

I agree that its not an election budget

No doubt its for everybody, all walks of life. A good one but not very comprehensive...

Slm tn,

Bajet yg bnyk beri tumpuan kpd rakyat berbilang kaum dan semua peringkat usia.

Org bujang pun boleh dpt BR1M, hebat tu!

Tahniah kpd tok najib

Tumpuan khusus kepada bidang pendidikan adalah sesuatu yg patut dipuji. Jarang ada negara berbuat demikian kerana beri peruntukan besar kepada pertahanan.

Pembangkang nampaknya gagal memprovok najib dgn bajet mereka.

Nampaknya anwar termasuk perangkap sendiri!

lauda said...

Bro, nothing special as it stop short of a serious stimulus package.

However, it was good enough in convincing the people that barisan nasional will not make any promises they cant keep

pro-pakatan said...

tak cun langsung, kosong dan hambar jika dibandingkan dgn bajet pakatan.

Agaknya bn dah ketandusan idea

si pitak said...

Kalau anwar nk belajar ekonomi, kena belajar drpd tok najib, bkn dgn nik ajih atau kit siang.

Skrg, siapa yg bnyk temberang?

Whatever it is, both bn and pr have their strength and weakness.

Although bn budget is not a big or an impossible promise to fulfill, pr did manage to gain some support there.

Lets see how both budgets can influence the electorates

Lain mcm je bajet kali ni, tak bnyk sentuh hal FDI, insentif pelaburan, kenaikan duti rokok dan barangan import seperti kereta mewah dan sebagainya...

Semuanya mengenai keperluan rakyat.

Betul ke ini bukan bajet pilihanraya?

Di akhir ucapannya, pm sebut mengenai perlunya rakyat terus beri mandat kpd bn.

Hmmmm...

Not an impressive one but for sure it will bring lots of relief to the rakyat.

Not too bad

Sekarang semua telah selesai. BN telah memberi gula-gulanya dan PR telah memberi gula-gulanya. Apalagi "the showdown at O.K. Corral" masih di tunggu-tunggu di peti undi.

Dh banyak kali bajet, hidup kami macam tu jugak. Bentanglah banyak mana pun. Korang tak tau masalah kami di kampung...

relahati said...

I was hoping pm would announce an insurance scheme for 2.7 million rela members...

What a frustration!

U call that a budget?

What anwar announced was a budget, full of big big things.

What najib announced was onky a gadget!

If its not meant for general election, for what?

Almost everything is to ease the peoples, nothing much about wooing foreign investors.

katib said...

Memang bijak dtk najib ni, sampai terkedu anwar dibuatnya.

Padan muka pembangkang!

Belanjawan yg menarik sebab takda benda berat di dalamnya.

Rakyat patut berbangga dan menghargai keperihatinan kerajaan dlm meringankan beban hidup.

Kepada kakitangan awam, bekerjalah dgn lebih jujur, ikhlas dan penuh dedikasi

Jai, i believe pakatan is sinking deep for its dream budget. Bn is so moderate, promising nothing impossible. Thats the way to go...

Kalau rakyat tak reti nak pangkah BN, tak tau la nak cakap apa!

Budget is a must, and so is election. Any ruling govt would want to retain power, and budget is one of the available avenue to lure support. So, it is still an election budgey, no matter how you present it
