PAP TRYING TO TURN WATER INTO LUXURY ITEM FOR THE RICH?

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. Ask any business manager or accountant, 30% increase can be only due to incompetency, greed, power, bad accounting and bad management.
