Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's open admission that PAP wards are favoured for HDB upgrading exercises has touched a raw nerve among netizens…..
"The answer is that there has to be a distinction. Because the PAP wards supported the Government and the policies which delivered these good things."
"Between the people who voted and supported the programme and the government, and the people who didn't, I think if we went and put yours before the PAP constituencies, it would be an injustice"
Pritam Singh from the Worker party summed in all up in his 1st May Rally speech.
“It lies in the PAP’s policy of linking votes to upgrading. This is despicable. All this policy does is to divide Singapore and Singaporeans.“
“My friends, the residents of Hougang and Potong Pasir pay the same income tax as all other Singaporeans. If war comes to Singapore tomorrow, we will be standing shoulder to shoulder with each other, regardless of race or religion or constituency.“
Singapore has always been a multi-languages and multi-religion country. I had classmates from all races and religion while I was growing up.
No one should be discriminated according to his race nor religion.
And now we have this idiot opening telling us PAP are discriminating people in opposition ward.
You just kissed your reputation or whatever is left of it goodbye Hsien Loong.
