IF GRASSROOTS ADVISOR CAN REPLACE AN MP, DOES THIS MEAN THEY HAVE EQUAL POWER?

Appointing a Grassroots Advisor in Marsiling instead of calling for a by-election raises very unsettling questions about how the Government recognises the legitimacy and authority of elected MPs. Does this mean that Government agencies will now accord them with as much recognition as elected MPs? Does this mean that these advisors can take on other roles that presumably only MPs can undertake?

COLLAPSED HIGHWAY CONTRACTOR OWNED BY PAP GRASSROOTS LEADERS

Or Kim Peow Contractor is the firm responsible for building the highway along Upper Changi Rd, but what's interesting is, it is owned by OKP Holdings Pte Ltd, whose Chairman and Directors are grassroots leaders! Chairman Or Kim Peow is in Potong Pasir CCC and was awarded Public Service Awards a few times before. His 3 sons are Directors of the company (surprise surprise!) and were similarly awarded for their contributions to public service. How come so many big shots but still cannot ensure safety precautions, still kena fined, still got lapse? What are they going to do about it now that they kena so many accidents? Eh pls la, make sure you run your company properly first before boasting about your involvement in "serving the community"!

TIME FOR GRASSROOTS VOLUNTEERS TO SERVE FROM THE HEART, NOT FOR GOODIES OR BENEFITS

Grassroot volunteers have long been blessed with benefits such as free parking and priority to Primary schools within the estate. All these unfair benefits should be removed so that the volunteers we attract for the community are helping out for the right reasons. It is high time to remove all these perks and accept only those who have the community at heart and wish to serve. This way it also helps the Peoples Association improve their image and shut those critics who accuse volunteers of helping out for ulterior motives.
