Water price hike is normal but to increase 30% is abnormal. Normal will be 1%-5% for necessities like water.
Water must never be a luxury. What happens when you make prices too out of reach for the ordinary Singapore household?
Some rich household will have good health and a better standard of living, others will just be scraping by and may suffer from renal-related diseases due to the lack of water.
Ask any business manager or accountant, 30% increase can be only due to incompetency, greed, power, bad accounting and bad management.
In a free market, any product with 30% price increase, consumers will choose another product. But there is no alternative. If we do not drink, we will die.
PAP failed this time on this issue.
Not 70 Percent
