SHAH ALAM: Wow factor aka no help for the needy. Bernama reported PM DS Ismail Sabri Yaakob as saying that the Budget 2022 has wow factors for all sectors. In response to the report, I tweeted Wow, MY getting LCS, LMS Batch II, LCA, MPA and UAV….
I didn’t really think we are getting them of course. I was being a snark as plenty of people who makes more money than me are already saying that the 2022 budget for the national security sector will be flat line. Of course we already knew that was coming due to the aftermath of pandemic.
The Bernama report
We already had a preview of it when the government announced the RMK12 plan last month, with no specific allocation for the national security sector and not a single planned purchase of arms. It also didn’t helped when the Defence Minister on Monday told Parliament that defence diplomacy was much better than billions ringgit worth of assets.
Well, I guess I shouldn’t be overly pessimistic and I should wait for actual budget announcement, tomorrow.
