Poverty Reduction? Easy, Just Lower the Benchmark!

WOW! Only 108 left?

By Jayanath Appudurai

ACCORDING to the Government Transformation Programme [GTP] Annual Report released on 27 March 2011, there are only “108 extreme poor households” left. The GTP within a span of 12 months transformed the lives of 44,535 extreme poor households. {See Chart}

To say the least, this is a stupendous achievement! An intractable problem that the nation has been grappling with for more than 40 years has ostensibly been solved in 1 year!
Should not the Government be lauded for this?

Guess, it all depends on how ‘extreme poor’ is defined?

Does the Malaysian government truly expect the people to believe these laughable lies that they have been spinning day in day out?

Malaysians must be really stupid for their government to treat them in this mode.
