Take Stand On Budget If You Don’t Agree: Umno Vice-President Khaled Nordin To MPs

Kuala Lumpur: Umno vice-president Khaled Nordin has told his party members and MPs that they are free to raise their voice if anyone feels that Budget 2021, which was tabled in the first week of November, was not enough for the well being of the country’s people. He said that MPs can voice out what improvement can be done in Budget 2021. Kahled’s statement comes a day after Perikatan Nasional Backbenchers Club chairperson Shahidan Kassim had said that rejecting the Budget will be a ‘traitor’ to people of this country. 

Pointing at Shahidan’s traitor remark, former Johor menteri besar Khaled stated everyone has their own opinion and thus carrying a different view is not a  treason. He further added that the greatest form of betrayal is to believe blindly without any rational thought.

He said that it does not matter if it differs from the party. MPs must do in the favour of the people and country, not for the party, he quoted in his statement.  

Muhyiddin Yassin-led PN government has been facing criticism since over the various issues, including reviving of JASA, loan moratorium extension, and withdrawing Employees Provident Fund (EPF) from Account 1 by opposition leaders, in the recently announced Budget.
