PKR deputy president Mohamed Azmin Ali today echoed former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamed's claim that the Bantuan Rakyat 1 Malaysia was a form of corruption practiced by the federal government.
"To me BR1M is one form of bribery. I have said on many occasions that it is one form of bribery.
"A bribe can be given in many forms. Because if it was (supposed to be) an economic aid, it (BR1M) does not empower the people," Azmin told reporters outside the Shah Alam district police station this evening.
