Guan Eng: Meeting ‘mostly’ about financial aid for rakyat

He alights from his white Toyota Vellfire and tells the media that his meeting with the Agong was “mostly” about how the rakyat needed financial aid amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.

Lim declines to answer when questioned if the Agong had asked DAP on its position on the government.

“I don’t want to comment on that. It is better to leave this to the wisdom of the Agong,” he says.
