CORONAVIRUS | The government should pay out a total RM2,000 in Bantuan Sara Hidup (BSH) to B40 recipients to help cushion the shock from the Covid-19 pandemic, urged Pakatan Harapan.

In a media statement signed by PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, Amanah’s secretary-general Hatta Ramli and DAP Johor chairperson Liew Chin Tong, Harapan said this was among three extraordinary measures needed to help the less privileged in Malaysia to weather the effects of the nationwide movement control order.
