In the letter, the General Manager for Potong Pasir SMC tells residents to pay their S&CC to Jalan Besar Town council with effect from 1st December.

Let's try to objectively understand the situation. 40% of people are unhappy with the current government due to certain policy that put them at a disadvantage. But let's also see what the opposition has done over the last 5 years. Objectively, both sides have faults, both sides have 'screwed up'. WP on the 'regional level', PAP on the 'national level'.
