Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) is genuinely aimed at helping the rakyat coping themselves against the increasing cost of living. This is a one-off payment to those whose income is below RM3,000.
It is not a complusion for the rakyat to receive this payment, meaning they can choose to accept or to reject it. In short, youe either take it or leave it.
Simply its a good gesture of The Government to its rakyat and many have been grateful of the gift, especially those who felt the pinch in their pocket. There have been efforts to circumvent the regulations just to get their hands on the payment.
However, if certain rakyat want to refuse the payment, they are welcomed to do so, again, there is no compulsion.
And if they have accepted the payment but then suddenly have a change of heart then all they can do is volunteer the RM500 to charity and to whom they felt so deserving.
But to badmouth The Government over the gift is simply outrageous! That is not cool la brader!
p.s. The depicted RM500 note with serial number ZV6192611 is no longer in circulation.
