It is heartening to see that businessmen, temples, clan associations and other organisations have come together to help raise $280,000 of the $600,000 to build a temporary market for stallholders who lost their source of livelihoods in the Jurong West fire. Kudos to this kind-hearted people for being part of the community effort!
I cannot help but wonder why the government can spend $880K on a bin centre for the National Art Council for RUBBISH when people from the community have to raise money to help REAL PEOPLE (hawkers) to build temorary hawker center? Even rubbish have more welfare than real living people.
What is wrong with the government?
