PUTRAJAYA – Close to 100 NGOs today handed to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak a memorandum expressing their support for Budget 2018 tabled in Parliament on Oct 27.
Peninsula Malay Students Federation (GPMS) president Zambri Mohd Isa, who represented the NGOs, presented the memorandum to Najib, who is also the Finance Minister, at Perdana Putra.
Speaking to reporters afterwards, Zambri said the NGO support was due to the budget having provided for all the people, particularly Malays and Muslims.
“We do not see the budget as an election budget but a budget for the future in line with the National Transformation 2050,” he said.
He also said that the memorandum welcomed the measures for enhancing the greatness of Islam and the transformation of Bumiputeras. – BERNAMA
