Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin defended her ministry’s move to rebrand the People’s Housing Project (PPR) to Malaysia’s Housing Project (PPM), saying they were both different concepts.
Though the rebranding still focused on the B40 group, she said the concept would be different as the houses built would be bigger with better facilities.
However, when asked if the prices of the rebranded houses would increase, Zuraida refused comment.
“I cannot be telling you everything. You will misquote me and everything will go crazy. But this (the rebranding exercise) is a different concept. The houses are bigger with at least 900 square feet compared to the current PPR houses where houses are only 700 square feet,” she said.
