BUKIT MERTAJAM, 26 Ogos (Bernama) -- Kerajaan Barisan Nasional (BN) sentiasa

prihatin terhadap isu berkaitan warga emas, ibu dan bapa tunggal, kanak-kanak,

golongan miskin dan kurang upaya serta yang menghadapi masalah sosial.

Timbalan Menteri Wanita, Keluarga dan Pembangunan Masyarakat Datuk Heng

di dalam belanjawan 2013 yang dijadual dibentangkan pada 28 Sept nanti.

"Ia (cadangan dalam belanjawan 2013) masih dalam proses untuk dimuktamadkan.

Perkara ini pasti akan mendapat perhatian sepenuhnya Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri

Najib Tun Razak yang amat prihatin dalam membela nasib rakyat khususnya golongan

yang memerlukannya," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian kepada pemberita apabila ditanya insentif yang akan

diberikan oleh kerajaan pusat dalam belanjawan 2013 nanti, selepas menyerahkan

sumbangan kepada ibu tunggal, Lim Lee Kheng, 29, yang menanggung empat orang

anak berumur satu hingga lapan tahun selepas kematian suaminya pada Mei lepas.

Ibu tunggal itu akan menerima bantuan RM400 daripada Jabatan Kebajikan

Masyarakat (JKM), mesin jahit di bawah program Teman 1Azam serta geran berjumlah

Sementara itu, Heng berkata pusat jagaan perlu berdaftar dengan pihak

Katanya kini terdapat sebanyak 818 pusat jagaan berdaftar dengan JKM di

seluruh negara dengan 66 buah daripadanya di Pulau Pinang.
